London-bred, LA-based premium denim label Hudson Jeans is not afraid to make a statement. While they offer a wide range of classic washes, they also have a knack for fabrication play, experimenting with new hues, prints, and coating to spruce up their signature styles. Hudson's latest example of innovation comes in the form of the LouLou jean, which is the brand's denim interpretation of the classic Le Smoking tuxedo suit made famous by Yves Saint Laurent.
Although LouLou is perfectly tailored to mimic the minimalist cool of its design muse, it wouldn't be a Hudson jean without some flash, so naturally they added phosphorescent coating to the classic Le Smoking stripe, which means that each stripe glows under UV or black lighting. Rave-chic, anyone?
LouLou comes in three colorways—dark navy with orange stripe, olive with yellow stripe, and burgundy with pink stripe—and will be available for purchase here by early February.
