Judd Nelson, the first time I saw you was in The Breakfast Club. You had me... at first glance. Your badass rebel style and devil-may-care pouty boy from the 'wrong side of the tracks' was a childhood and teenage dream. And likely my father's nightmare. But for fashion and style and attitude- it was everything to me.
When I began my Trenchmono design process- I was waiting for the perfect shade of taupe/tan in a fabric to mesmerized me. I wanted that classic trench coat color variance and was patiently waiting a few months until I realized that I already had the perfect fabrics lying beneath my nose. With certainty, I cut 8 yards of fabric from my Japan fabric in 'Taupe' and began the process of flowing with what was in my mind (heart) and materializing it into this new design. I knew the fabric had to be thicker and have more weight and volume, so I 'doubled' the fabric- meaning I used it as a lining as well as the outer piece- kind of like a bubble. And thus, born was The Judd -a slouchy (not slacker ;) oversized styled classic menswear kimono-trench‘coat’. I of course styled it with his one fingerless glove and a velvet fringed scarf to pay him proper homage.
My styling here is with my 'Canadian Tuxedo'- an all denim look. I love pale washed out denim and these two staples are pieces I wear often- flared jeans and a snap-button long sleeve denim shirt. I am pairing it with suede boots with a good heel (3 inches) by Maje.
