Instead of waiting around for the void in curves-friendly jeans to be filled in the premium denim market, Cookie Johnson, wife of sports legend Magic Johnson, decided to create a brand that catered to women with her body type. Then CJ by Cookie Johnson was born.
This American-made premium denim line has truly catapulted itself as a “one to watch” with their confidence-boosting fits and on-trend designs.
Our team visited Cookie Johnson in the CJ by Cookie Johnson showroom in L.A. to get the designer’s take on what makes this denim line so special:
In 1973 the Americans were on the brink of greatness. It was the era of rebels who dominated the tennis circuit. They played the gentleman's game their way and made it to the top. Enter Bill St. John, the cunning head pro at the field club in Greenwich. That year he created an American tennis company, one as irreverent as his idols. Soon Boast was a hallmark of top golf, squash, and tennis players at the top clubs.
Bill was a man of his times. The age belonged to tennis icons who dabbled in painting, and painters who dabbled in squash. It belonged to movie stars who ran away to live in communes and musicians who made their reputations playing the Mudd Club. As preppy went mainstream, so did Boast. The distinct Maple Leaf logo could be spotted on the summertime crew at Cape Cod and on undergrads across the nation.
Boast comes from the world of prep, but it has brought its own unique spin to the game. It is for the irreverent gentleman, the guy who knows how to break the rules and get away with it. Bill founded Boast in an age when you'd grab a beer after a match, not a dumbbell. He believed in athletic excellence but also in the broader view—you're good enough at the sport to call it just a game.
JLynn Hausmann is a young and talented denim designer who launched a new denim brand called JHaus. Her fresh and progressive brand is steadily gaining attention for its trend-setting styles. Hausmann credits her Midwest roots for the inspiration behind her collection and has developed a style that is uniquely her own. She incorporates Americana motifs in a way that few other designers can.
JLynn attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln but took the opportunity to study abroad in London and Paris. There she became increasingly exposed to and interested in fashion.
JLynn proceeded to obtain her master’s degree in Business Administration in Arizona.
Raised on a farm and ranch, JLynn grew up with a less-is-more mentality. These genuine Midwest roots inspired JLynn’s use of denim in her designs. Using strong basic fabrics, she is still able to capture a flowing beauty in the designs.
When wearing jeans with embellishments was a major trend, JLynn saw the gratuitous bells and whistles as adulterating the true nature of the fabric. Her designs use denim in a completely different way – employing restraint and achieving beauty through the rugged fabric.
Fearlessly taking the conventional and making it unconventional is what drives JLynn. Her work with JHaus Denim is gaining momentum, as well as critical acclaim, in the industry. Deidre Crawford, Technology Editor of the Fashion Industries Guild, lauded JLynn’s work in California Apparel News: “one of the most innovative creations of the night was a backless stretch-denim dress adorned with chicken wire, created by mid-West designer JLynn Hausmann of JHAUS premium denim.
