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!
Our swim collaboration, Maiyo x NATALIE OFF DUTY, is now available to shop at REVOLVE! Still pinching myself. I designed this collection with simplicity, mixed materials, and soft colors in mind. My swim style has definitely become more and more minimal through the years. With each ribbed and crochet piece here, you will notice something special whether it be a luxurious belt or button accent. Every piece has that sexy 90’s high hip that we totally nailed, which always makes the legs look stellar. I want you to feel extra confidant and free in your body when you’re wearing my designs. Which piece will you be sporting this summer?
