Vanessa Traina and Kate Wendelborn of the recently launched 'The Line' worked with 3x1 to create the perfect selvedge jeans for women. Using XX133 (our favorite black selvedge denim) and XX71 (a slightly lighter indigo denim with some stretch), they worked with Scott to design a jean that sits high on the hip with a straight leg men's fit. Kate and Vanessa wanted to create a classic straight leg jean like the 501 while still maintaining a feminine silhouette.
The Line's vision came from "a desire to pare back, strip down, and pull together - the search for refined, versatile, and honest goods." Their site features a carefully curated selection of products from emerging designers. We absolutely love their concept of focusing on the unique story behind each product's creation.
You can check out our collaboration on The Line or stop by 15 Mercer to see it in person. The Line will also be opening their historic New York City home as an "off-line" experience where people can see their refined curations on display. Get your invite here!
