Hudson Jeans is a designer denim company based in Los Angeles, California. The brand was founded in 2002 by Peter Kim, with a mission to create fashion-forward designer jeans that reflect the company's slogan, "London edge meets L.A. glam." Known for their sexy fit, comfortable soft denim fabric, and iconic back pocket flaps, as well as edgy advertising campaigns featuring Mick Jagger's daughter, the brand's jeans and clothing items -- including denim jackets and vests -- are sold today at high-end department stores and boutiques in countries around the world.
Hudson Jeans are produced from premium quality denim sourced at textile mills in Europe and Japan. Since the brand's launch in 2002, all Hudson clothing items items have been manufactured in Los Angeles, California. Each pair of jeans from the designer is hand finished and tailored, for a one-of-a-kind fit.
Hudson Jeans was founded in 2002 by Los Angeles native Peter Kim, a Los Angeles native. Kim is a graduate of the University of Southern California, where he majored in business administration. While in college, he gained valuable experience working for his family's failing clothing company, which he helped return to profitability.
In 2000, Kim independently launched his first denim brand, Jane's Army, which was manufactured in Thailand. The company folded after a year in business, due to issues with fabric quality. Kim has credited this experience with teaching him the importance of having a quality product.
In 2002, Kim launched Hudson Jeans, with a renewed focus on premium fabrics and quality craftmanship. Today, Hudson Jeans is a sought-after jeans brand with a worldwide following.
