Alyssa Less is American-made specialty denim that combines the spirit of youthful American sportswear with cutting-edge technique and luxury craftsmanship.
Hailed a "Breakout Denim Brand" by Fashionista, one of "10 Brands Changing the Denim Game" by Refinery29, a "Denim Brand to Watch" by WGSN, and a "fashion brand to buy now before they blow up” by Marie Claire, Alyssa Less fuses innovative design with fresh silhouettes to bring you updated statement jeans you can also ride the subway in. Cool intellectuals like Rowan Blanchard, Lena Dunham, Esperanza Spalding, and Zoe Lister Jones have all sported the brand.
Alyssa Less is constructed in the United States with premium denim and designed between NYC and LA by Parsons graduate Alyssa Lesser. After working with designers like Marc Jacobs, Vena Cava, Richard Chai, and Ralph Lauren, Lesser sought to apply her love of print and graphic statement pieces to the denim market. Alyssa Less launched for Spring 2016 with a range of thoughtful denim separates that combined the comfort and fit of the best vintage pairs with purposeful and personal details. Collections frame references ranging from art and design, youth culture, favorite musicians and historical textiles through the lens of a minimal maximalist.
AL's signature embossed denim is a modernized application of a lost 80s technique, rendering inspired motifs as a three dimensional denim surface with unique highs and lows based upon wash and wear over time. Casual-luxe jeans and jackets are paired with laser cut specialty leathers, experimental dye techniques, innovative seaming and modern silhouettes. Luxury craftsmanship and a commitment to true denim construction, wash, comfort and fit result in some of the most thoughtful and special denim on planet earth.
