Doctrine Jeans is a premium Men’s and Women’s denim line made in Los Angeles, CA. They are focused on providing hand-made denim with truly unique washes and details in a variety of fits. Their fabrics are carefully chosen, tested, then selected from various regions throughout the world to make sure they offer high quality denims.
The concept of Doctrine is based on the fundamentals of its very definition. A doctrine is something learned or taught…this company was built on the foundation of its members’ superfluity of fashion industry experience. Individuals bring their knowledge into a collaboration to produce a quality LA made denim.
The models of the Doctrine runway show had a wide variety of styles based on the basic denim. But coupling those with blazers and blouses made the outfits widely different. They represented a casual and yet oh so chic look.
Doctrine produced denims designed by the endearing Teresa Sung. Her focus is making a clean fit and really emphasizing on the washes. She does a lot of experimentation with weights but focuses on a scale of 8 1/2 oz -12oz for this Fall/Winter 2001 range. The denim used for making this collection is Egyptian cotton; says Teresa “This denim makes Doctrine jeans much softer than most jean brands out there!”
Stylists and female celebrity mentionables eagerly anticipated their Women’s collection presented at LA Fashion Week. The audience was very receptive and showed great appreciation for the pieces presented on the runway. The models were styled in earth tones and messy undoes which highlighted the jeans flawlessly. We loved how dangerously low some waistlines went, a perfect summer accent. The variety was spectacular as there was a type of style to fit numerous body types and wash requirements. Even though there was a broad range of fits and washes, this season’s signature looks featured slim jeans, gaucho pants and capris.
Doctrine’s jeans all have a unique but subtle signature back pocket detail, which is derived from their logo. The understated arrow logo detail is very distinctive. The collection that was presented at LA fashion week was classy & sophisticated. The price range for a pair of Doctrine Denims is competitive $165-$215 and can be found currently at Saks, Bloomingdales, Harvey Nichols and various locations in Las Vegas.
