J Brand Introduces Blue Label in Response to Consumers Who Want Premium Denim for a Curvier Body
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Los Angeles Fashion Awards “Denim Designer of the Year” winner and celebrity favorite, J Brand, has announced the debut of its latest line, J Brand Blue Label. Featuring a new fit for the curvier woman, the line was created to meet market demand for an alternative to the brand’s existing fit.
“Blue Label is perfect for women with curves,” said Susie Crippen, J Brand co-founder and Creative Director. “We have received a good deal of feedback from women who told us they loved our look and styles but wanted a fuller fit. We created Blue Label with a more generous cut around the leg, as well as a contoured waistband to hug the body’s natural curves.”
J Brand Blue Label has two predominant styles: The Scarlett with a low-rise fit and The Catherine with a mid-rise fit — both available in a cigarette leg and a boot leg. The cigarette leg is a 14-inch stovepipe, which has J Brand’s signature look with more room around the thigh. J Brand’s boot leg with a subtle flare and has been a consistently requested style.
And, finally, there is a wide-leg style for women who like a flowing jean. The Monroe is a mid-rise style that fits looser from the hips to the thighs. The back darts and contoured waistband keep this wide leg polished without looking overdone. The Monroe is also available in organic cotton.
“Blue Label was truly born out of the spirit to meet customers’ needs,” said J Brand co-founder Jeff Rudes. “We are pleased to be able to provide women with this new curvy fit in the J Brand aesthetic.”
Retail price points for J Brand Blue Label jeans range between $158–165 for the Scarlett and Catherine styles, and are approximately $178 for the Monroe. The line is scheduled to hit stores in August, with an early delivery in July exclusively for Bloomingdale’s.

"As they say, ask and you shall receive. I’ve been dying for J Brand to do something like their Lovestory jean in a shorter inseam because when you are not of supermodel stature and have to hem your jeans, you wind up cutting off most of the “bell” shape if you take off more than a few inches.
Tada! Coming soon, the J Brand Petite Length jean! Shopbop is getting the exclusive on the Petite Heartbreaker in the Ink wash (shown above) on August 30th, and they will also have it in White in November. Bloomingdale’s is getting the exclusive on the Petite 12″ leg jean in Ink wash on July 30th. Can’t wait!" -
