Here is an inside look at the making of the NATALIE x DL1961 DigiTag jean. From first design meeting, to our last fitting. I love the final product: a true blue baggy wide-leg jean with a vintage high waist. I gave it a supermodel inseam as well so that it nearly hits the floor giving it a really slouchy, cool feel. The DigiTag inside my jean shows you exactly how it was sustainably made. It’s always so much fun to look back into the design process. I loved every minute of it. Total dream team right here.
The NATALIE x DL1961 jean is a mix of my two favorite styles, a vintage high waist and a baggy wide leg. I am so excited to have designed this jean with the DL1961 team right here in New York City. It is made with recycled fibers, water, and energy. All of the NATALIE jean’s sustainability metrics are traceable with each pair’s DigiTag, short for Digital Tag. It’s made with a hint of stretch so that you can move with them and dance in them. This jean will give you the freedom to do whatever your heart desires. The NATALIE jean is made with less water than anything else in your closet and I hope you love them.
You guys have been patiently awaiting the SUAREZ SISTERS x APERÇU Eyewear collection restock and I’m so excited to say, that it is finally here! Thank you for all your support and love for our designs. We were able to restock all styles and colors just in time for summer this past week! The Fern sporty oval sunglasses, that I’m wearing here, remain a bestseller. So get shopping before we sell out again!
Dylana and I have been blown away by your #SuarezxAPERCU eyewearposts and are so grateful to see we have a fan base for them! Seeing you style and get creative with our collection makes me extra inspired for spring and summer. Bring out the sunshine and the sunnies. A few of our color ways and styles are currently sold out, but you can still join the waiting list. We will be restocking as soon as possible! CAPRI, the colorway I am wearing here, is a fun piece to go monochromatic with. Honestly, it’s my favorite way to style all of our designs. Easy and simple. A boyish blazer and matching trouser short and you’re good to go. Yep, I wore this to grab groceries in Brooklyn Heights the other day. Super casual, I know. But what other reasons do we have to dress up these days?
