When I heard that the designer of Triarchy worked in Italy for some time and learned all he knew from the mill he worked in, I had to probe his mind and get some insider knowledge about the gorgeous product I saw on the runway at the Mercedes-Benz Start up designer competition.
When I used to work with denim, there was always one thing on my mind… “I wonder what his butt will look like in these jeans?” The important things that emphasized a perfect butt are:
the fit of the jean and
the weight of the denim.
I had to ask designer Adam Taubenfligel about the denim weight since I already saw the fab fit on the runway. This way I could determine if the pant would make it past the discriminatory eye of people of… my nature.
- Can you tell me of the weight of the denim that you use in your collections? I heard that you worked in Italy in a denim factory so let me know about the technical weights that you prefer for men and women.
“For men we use an 11 oz and it is a 98% cotton 2% stretch Italian denim. The point of it though is to still look like a raw jean, but have that bit of movement and that’s where the motordike comes in, you want the comfort but you still want the style, we found a balance there. And the women’s the indigo pieces are a 9oz Japanese supema cotton[”
- So… Comfortable?
“Oh my god yeah!”
“And that is also 98%, and that’s considered low stretch for a lot of women’s brands but it’s really proving it’s self-worth”
- Where is the line going next?
“Well we started with our core pieces which is only just our indigo denim but becasue of this program we expanded it quite rapidly. So now that that’s happened I can’t really shut my brain off so we’re going to keep going. I’d like to get more into our leather and accessories to pair with the denim because we’re not really an apparell line so if I can keep going with the leather apparell and accessories that’s where I want to go.”
- Congratulations guys again on your line it is definitely going in the right direction!
