Channeling 70s disco glamour and utilitarian denim, Adelaine Bourbon launched Eve Denim in 2015 out of Los Angeles to offer women's jeans that are sentimental to the individual wearer. Having served as a creative consultant to Serge Azria who was relaunching the 70s shirting label Equipment, Bourbon gained insight into resurrecting vintage styles. The Paris-born designer set out to craft a line of durable denim for the urban cowgirl, favoring rigid, non-stretch materials. She started with raw denim sourced from Cone Denim Mills—a leading denim supplier since 1891—cut into feminine fits including flared hems and high-rise culottes, then expanding into jackets and shorts.
Each piece is produced in the US, extending the Americana spirit of workwear-inspired styles of like Eve Denim’s overalls. Naming Brigitte Bardot and Francoise Hardy as her muses for the brand, Bourbon looks to vintage archives to center her creations around while infusing a timeless French appeal.
