Creation of designer Suzanne Costas, Earl Jean was born in the 1960's and living in
California, Suzanne Costas worked as a television as well as film stylist.
Suzanne Costas set up Earl Jean in Los Angeles in 1996 following 10 years of careful consideration. What she
she wanted was to make the sort of bootcut jeans that she wanted to wear but unfortunately could not find in the
shops. Earl Jean are therefore a girl's denim, mostly slim-legged, low slung and very sexy.
Earl Jean style 55 denims are more of an "LA" style: laid back but with a perfect fit. The
range features corduroy, velvet and leather, with very brightly coloured cotton tank tops and shrunken
Earl Jean present a style and look which is perfectly well-adapted for life on the West Coast of the
United States. With its big success however, Earl Jean gradually moved out and stretched into the rest of
the world. Earl Jean products are now available in leading speciality and department stores across the United
States, Europe and Japan including Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Harvey Nichols in London.
In October 2000, the first freestanding Earl Jean boutique opened in Los Angles followed by a shop in Tokyo. The
Soho shop in New York opened during November 2001 in Osaka, Japan in March 2002. From Autumn
of 2002, men were able to get their own Earl Jeans as well.
Jeans by Earl Jean are casual enough for daytime activities, but can also be more sophisticated when paired up with
a Gucci jacket, or a cashmere V-neck.
Many celebrities such as top model Cindy Crawford and Hollywood actress Courtney
Cox enjoy wearing denim by Earl Jean.
