A lot of us own several pairs of jeans in different styles and washes. Sure, they all look great with any T-Shirt, but sometimes we want those noticeable rips or stiches that make one pair stand out. The designers at Artistix Jeans are known for creating an artistic feel to their jeans and clothing. The story begins with painter, Greg Polisseni who would usually wear jeans while painting. Inevitably, they would get drips and splatters of paint on them. While walking around New York, he would get a remarkable amount of compliments asking where he got his pants. In response to this, Polisseni used his background in painting and graphic design, as well as his love for fashion and collaborated with designers to create Artstix Jeans.
Each piece of clothing has a small detail that reflects Polisseni’s (Splatter Jean) esthetic. Jeans have paint splatters and rips, but also a clean and casual look. The most prominent pieces are the leather jackets, lined with Polisseni’s Stars and Stripes Forever and November Rain. The jackets offer a sleek and masculine structure that subtly connects to the artwork.
The American flag is a motif in Polisseni’s work. The flag appears indirectly but in other aspects. Artistix keep true to their All-American brand by “insourcing” their clothing. They also offer unisex clothing in a majority of their styles reflecting in the equality between men and women.
On Sunday, the company launched their website and showcased the clothing. They look to be on the rise for high-end casual wear. You can check them out at: http://artistixjeans.com
