Hutson To Be a "Departure" from Obedient Sons & Daughters

Hutson To Be a "Departure" from Obedient Sons & Daughters

>> Christina and Swaim Hutson had to abruptly close down tailored, suiting-anchored Obedient Sons & Daughters last month and restart with new label Hutson, which begs the question — will Hutson be any different?  Christina says yes.  "There are some similarities, since we're the same people, but we tried to stick with more of a formula with Obedient Sons. Now we have the freedom to experiment a little with silhouettes and fabrications and things like that."

In fact, the Hutsons sound almost relieved to be starting over — Swaim says they "kind of felt pigeonholed . . . We didn't want to stray from what was working."  Hutson allows them "to grow it up. Because that's one thing we were fighting the whole time. The name evokes such a young thought, immediately."

For Hutson Fall 2009, Swaim explains, expect "a departure" from Obedient Sons & Daughters' standard skinny fit: "We were kind of moving in that direction anyway, and when everything hit the fan it just made more sense to push it a little bit further. We could step away from what we had to do for Obedient Sons."  The new collection is "all still trailored," but Christina adds: "Now we're experimenting with more oversized and loose proportions. Bigger tops, bigger jackets, extremely oversized outerwear."

And their inspiration?  "Early thirties nightlife," with the men "in the brothel" and the women "the brothel."
