You already know Jeffrey Rüdes, as the “J” behind J Brand jeans.
He sold the brand for $300 million in 2013, and now helms an eponymous menswear line that’s a little Tom Ford by way of Saint Laurent; Caraceni by way of Saville Row: a little Hollywood, some rock and roll, decidedly European, and 100% luxe.
Caraceni by way of Saville Row …
The line focuses on fine fabrics and Old World craftsmanship. Fit, of course, is everything. And opulent fabrics are hand-selected by Jeff and his team.
Social Media Director Chris Lavish recently had the the opportunity to visit with Alana Jae at Jeffrey Rüdes’ SoHo flagship (see video), while across the globe Paris Editor Gabriela Billini visited his atelier in Paris (which was once Coco Chanel’s apartment). But as much as the scenery changed, the real treat was Rüdes’ accessible, sex appeal-building collection.
