With prices shooting upwards of $200 for designer jeans, it's safe to say the denim market doesn't have sympathy for the struggling economy. That is, until we found out about Paper Denim & Cloth co-founder Chris Gilbert's new denim line, named Resin. “My biggest goal is for someone to pick out a pair, try them on, and be shocked when they see the price,” said Gilbert.
Resin hits the lower designer price point range of $128 to $158 for a pair. The gritty, New York-inspired collection focuses on straight- and skinny-leg cuts offered in a range of vintage washes. “We approached it from a modern view, keeping in mind that our jeans are created to feel like they’ve been worn before the first wear,” said co-designer Durango Adams. Perfect for the slick, city girl. Interested? The collection makes its debut this Fall at select boutiques across major cities.
