"There are two things that are critical to a successful denim collection—the perfect fit and being on trend. Those are both things the Sam Edelman brand is known for and will be the foundation for the denim launch as well"

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Whether perfectly paired with Sam Edelman’s sky-high stilettos or fashion-forward flats, denim is at the core of great American style.

In celebration of more than a decade of producing elevated, inspirational and aspirational fashion items, Sam Edelman continues its legacy of designing iconic and effortlessly-chic wardrobe essentials with the launch of Sam Edelman denim.

“We are excited about the newest addition to our ever-growing brand. Our product is designed for the modern woman and her desire to feel comfortable and confident, wherever she goes,” said the company’s president, Sam Edelman.

The new denim product line will join ten other categories in the Sam Edelman Lifestyle collection including shoes, handbags, kids’ shoes, outerwear, activewear, intimates, hosiery and socks, dresses, swimwear and sunglasses.

Sam Edelman reached out to Los Angeles denim expert Global Brands Group (GBG) Denim West to manufacture the product. Together, the two companies brought to market a collection designed to uphold Sam Edelman’s unwavering commitment to quality, fit and comfort.

“There are two things that are critical to a successful denim collection—the perfect fit and being on trend. Those are both things the Sam Edelman brand is known for and will be the foundation for the denim launch as well,” said Suzy Biszantz, president and CEO of GBG Denim West.

The first offering for holiday features jeans and denim jackets in an array of washes and three perfect fits. The featured fits include “The Kitten” mid-rise, “The Stiletto” high-rise and “The Mary Jane” boyfriend jean. Eye-catching details for the holiday collection include trend-right hems, crystal embellishments and coated denim. The spring collection expands to also offer denim skirts and shorts.

Sam Edelman denim is available now on Nordstrom.com, Samedelman.com and in all thirteen Sam Edelman retail locations, retailing from $98-$148.
