The Model of the Moment Designs a Retro-Inspired Denim Collection
When you are the daughter of a Rolling Stone and a 70s supermodel, looking good in a pair of jeans is basically a birthright. But as the face of Hudson, Georgia May Jagger can do more than walk the walk: her eponymous new capsule collection for the brand, whose campaign (shot by Matt Irwin) we preview in the images above, sees her trying on the role of designer. The 18-year-old worked with creative director Benjamin Taverniti on everything from the sketches to the washes of the five stretch-denim styles on offer, which take cues from Guns N' Roses as well as the vintage Wrangler collection of her mother, Jerry Hall. We spoke to the rising starlet and model about the Marlboro Man and the jeans she hides in her closet.
What's your favorite pair from the collection?
I love the black skinnies that lace up on the sides, because I have wanted them for ages and haven't found them anywhere. I also wear the grey stonewash pair all the time. This new stretch fabric we use is so comfortable it feels like wearing pajamas, but they look really sexy.
What is the most embarrassing pair of jeans you’ve owned?
It's a toss up between the pink dungarees I used to wear when I was young, and the bright green shiny zebra print ones that are still hiding in the back of my closet.
Name your favorite denim-wearing style icons?
My mother––the ultimate stylish denim-wearing lady; James Dean; the Marlboro Man; the Ramones.
Besides the perfect pair of jeans, what are your other wardrobe and beauty essentials?
Red lipstick, moisturizer, the perfect red dress, a leather jacket, a comfortable pair of leather boots and a smile.
What are your plans for 2011?
At the moment I am very torn between London, New York and Los Angeles. In 2011 I hope to go to school for art and photography, and get my own place in London.
