Adélaïde Bourbon

Talented designer of the coolest jeans brand in LA, Eve Denim

Hi Adélaïde, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I created a jeans brand called Eve Denim. I was born in PAris, raised in New yOrk and I have been living in Los angeles since 2008.

I’m quite eccentric and passionate about vintage. I love to mix styles from different times.

why have you started your brand, eve denim?

Big fan of vintage shaped jeans, i started my own brand in 2015. I used to spend hours looking for the perfect vintage pair of jeans that would fit perfectly and could never find it.

That’s why i started my brand.

How do your french origins and your life in the us influence your creations ?

I use a french fabric paired with cuts made in USA. it’s the purest expression of these two cultures inside me.

My biggest inspiration is the story of jeans that i find in the thirties, fifties, in french or american cuts. i aim to reproduce that in a very minimalist way, almost raw.
