Nudie Jeans Turns Up the Sound

The men's denim label welcomed The Bowery Riots to Saks New York.

Joey Ramone wore them tight & shredded. Jimi Hendrix? Partial to patches and kick-flares. Denim shares an intimate history with rock ‘n’ roll, and no one knows that better than Nudie Jeans. As if to prove it, the Swedish denim label introduced garage rockers The Bowery Riots to a live-wire crowd of fashion misfits and rock fanatics at Saks New York. The drink of choice: whiskey (neat, of course). The sound: bluesy garage punk with the amp set to smoldering.

Like their music, the band’s look is an ever-evolving mash-up of past and present. “What you wear changes how you feel; it encapsulates something,” says lead singer Justin Dean Thomas. “Someone like David Bowie had a concept in mind when he was being Ziggy. He became certain characters when he wore certain get-ups.”

To bassist TJ Rosenthal, it’s the pioneering spirit of rock that influences what the band wears today. “With the British Invasion, the look became a lot tighter. Then punk bands like The Clash brought this new DIY aesthetic, and it’s a diversity that we really love.”

This drive to shift cultural standards is something Nudie Jeans embraces, using its jeans as platform to promote eco-friendly production within the textile industry. Like music, Nudie Jeans sees fashion as a driver for social change, and to Bowery Riots drummer Warren Stubbs, that’s a concept worth turning up the amp for. “Social activism is something everyone should be aware of. If you have a soap box to stand on, get up on there and speak your mind.”


The Met Ball: Our Favorite Looks

The best of the best from NYC's party of the year.

In an era when New York’s social calendar is much less formal and public than in decades past, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual gala stands out. And how: the red carpet has reached Academy Awards-level hysteria, with photogs and fans alike lining Fifth Avenue for a peek at A-list faces, dresses, tuxes and — in the case of Mr. Bundchen himself, Tom Brady — a much discussed faux-hawk.

But about those dresses: what stood out? Our editors scoured the looks and chose a few of their favorites.

AMI: A Man’s Best Friend

Alexandre Mattiusi's hyper-cool menswear collection is redefining the modern man.

AMI_POST_GALLERY_BANNER_2_760x362

With a scruffy beard and an infectious, seductive charisma, AMI’s designer, Alexandre Mattiusi, exudes an unmistakable je nais sais quoi…one we’re more than happy to import into the Saks Fifth Avenue men’s department. Flipping through the AMI fall lookbook is to peer into the state of men’s fashion: artfully disheveled, perfectly slouchy, teeming with requisite Parisian cool. And what of that Française à la mode? Mattiusi boyishly shrugs. “We are not perfect. We are not always shaven. We smoke. Basically, we are romantic and nonchalant – like a lover, like life.”

With a scruffy beard and an infectious, seductive charisma, AMI’s designer, Alexandre Mattiusi, exudes an unmistakable je nais sais quoi…one we’re more than happy to import into the Saks Fifth Avenue men’s department. Flipping through the AMI fall lookbook is to peer into the state of men’s fashion: artfully disheveled, perfectly slouchy, teeming with requisite Parisian cool. And what of that Française à la mode? Mattiusi boyishly shrugs. “We are not perfect. We are not always shaven. We smoke. Basically, we are romantic and nonchalant – like a lover, like life.”

Who exactly is the AMI man?
AM: Ami means “friend” in French, so my muses are my friends, cool people on the street…I wanted to mix high-street with simple luxury.

One of those friends and muses is the fabulous model and icon, Caroline de Maigret.
AM: Caroline is like, my neighbor. I love her…she is amazing. And my clothes, my shoes: they fit her like perfectly – no tailoring needed!

Historically, fashion has looked to the British and Italians for menswear inspiration. How does the French man differentiate from the standard?
AM: The French have a certain je ne sais quoi: we are definitely nonchalant, sexy, romantic and confident. My collection reflects a man with a life. Someone who may have an important job, but who still enjoys a drink on a terrace, friendship…the things we all enjoy. The man I design for is multidimensional.

How are you reinventing the menswear wheel? How is AMI different?
AM: I know men, I know boys…many cannot afford a $2,000 sweater – I, myself, cannot! I want to reach people. I want to create something approachable. Something for real-life. I make clothes that I, myself, love to wear, that I want to see on people. My clothes have to be worn. I want to say as natural, normal as possible. I don’t want to be a ‘big brand’ where I am out of touch…

What are the must-haves for every modern man’s closet?
AM: A proportionate camel coat – it must be timeless! A navy jacket, a denim shirt, a great pair of jeans, a beautiful pair of white sneakers, a white oxford shirt, a grey sweatshirt…and of course, some tattoos!
