SpoiledBrat are pleased to announce that they are now stocking these fabulous jeans, by 18th Amendment.
The spirit of 18th Amendment denim is derived from the roaring 1920s where the speakeasy cultures were filled with gritty glamour, legnedary creatives and silver screen stars. Each of the denim styles invokes the spirit of their Hollywood counter-parts, icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Gina Lollobrigida are embodied in a modern denim twist. What makes them instantly recognisble is their signature winged art-deco logo, found on every back pocket. Inspired by the elegance of the Rolls Royce ‘Flying Lady.’Launched in Sydney, Australia in February 2006, 18th Amendment was discovered by a colloboration between noted Australian fashion designer Rebecca Dawson and Rachel Rose an international denim importer. 18th Amendment hits a niche in the international jeans market with a blend of vintage styles teamed with modern finishing and detailing.
From the land Down Under, Prohibition in the United States must have seemed like a brilliant idea, inspiring speakeasies and fashionable indulgence—hence the name of cult favorite denim line 18th Amendment. Australian designer Rachel Rose paired with creative director Rebecca Dawson to bring the same kind of refined glamour found in the 1920s to its collection of denim. As one of the first lines to bring back the high waist, this fashion-forward label also embraces clean washes, subtly adorning its denim with signature embroidered wings on the back pockets and a small embroidered star on the front. Borrowing nomenclature from classic movie stars, this season’s styles span the denim spectrum, from high-waisted skinnies to mid-rise flares. We’d rather have a legal cocktail than moonshine any day, but we’d be silly to pass up on a pair (or two) of 18th Amendment’s superflattering jeans. No secret password required.
