Lafayette 148 were born and raised in the spirit of NYC. Named after the address in SoHo where they were founded, they are a global lifestyle brand led by women, for women. Their journey began in 1996, build on their founders' belief that women deserve beautiful clothing crafted for women's needs—wardrobes, rich and fluid lives.
Remastered with modern proportions, the newest iteration of the Mercer Jean features the signature sculpting, ultra-slim fit of the original, and is elevated with an elongated length and refined kick-flare cut. It's expertly crafted in the USA from Lafayette 148's signature Italian denim—a soft-yet-structured, consciously crafted cotton that's infused with just the right amount of stretch, and hand-finished to achieve the unique highs and lows that make each pair truly one-of-a-kind.
