Two LA based brands with massive fan bases have joined forces for a high end collaboration of exotic skin adorned denim shirts. launching Wednesday October 15th.
Jeweler to the most stylish celebs (hello, Rihanna), fashion girls and bloggers everywhere, Jacquie Aiche and cool-girl denim brand with some of the best fits, Mother Denim, are launching a joint project available for special order starting this week.
The idea bubbled up after Aiche and her team were prepping for the shows in Paris and the jewelry designer decided that the group needed a little something special for their wardrobes. "I wanted to create a "girl gang" effect; something that reflected our vibe of luxury mixed with a dose of bad ass," she says. Her longtime friends and co-founders of Mother, Lela Becker and Tim Kaeding, saw this as the perfect opportunity to join forces as organic extensions of their respective brands.
"Lela and I have been friends for so long that it was really just a matter of time before we found the perfect way to bring our creativity together," says Aiche.
The made-to-order shirts are available in three designs, Eye of Thor, Pyramid and Sweet Leaf with the option to add custom lettering and retails for $1475 (snake) and $1425 (deer).
The shirts are available exclusively through the Jacquie Aiche showroom (310.550.7529)
