Discover styles by Adriano Goldschmied


At Pauw we offer an extensive selection of denim; from timeless and sophisticated J Brand to the collection of denim guru Adriano Goldschmied. But how do you choose the right jeans? In our denim guide we highlight our most popular styles: from skinny jeans to the ex-boyfriend jeans. Read on and discover your favourite.

According to Adriano Goldschmied, also known as the godfather of denim, there are a few things to keep in mind when looking for the perfect pair of jeans. The fit must be impeccable, and the fabric must feel comfortable and soft. "The jeans should look like they have been lived-in. The fading, whiskering, and distressing all need to look authentic - like they happened over time from natural wear and tear," says Sandy Oh, senior designer at AG.

The Mari High Rise Cigarette

The Mari has a high-waisted, snug fit around the hips, straight legs and subtle tapered, ankle-length ends. The raw finish of the hems in combination with the light denim wash give this style a unique vintage appearance. This model is made of Japanese denim, in a blend of cotton and lyocell, with super stretch.

The Harper

This straight model is designed in a lightweight denim blend with a hint of a stretch for a classic, sophisticated look. The jean has a slim fit, anmedium-high waist with straight legs and is uniquely distressed for a vintage look. The strategically denim wash and comfortable fit make this one of the most popular AG models.

The Ex-Boyfriend Slim Jeans

This loose model has a high waist and slouchy fit. The folded ends have an ankle length and are tapered for a slimming effect. The Ex-Boyfriend jean is designed in an exclusive non-stretch denim with an ultra-soft touch that only ages better with wear. This model gives your outfit an edgy feel and combines beautifully with an iconic Pauw blazer and heels.

The Super Skinny Legging Ankle

The skinny jean is one of the signature models in the AG collection. The Legging Ankle is designed in this distinctive fit, but has a shorter ankle length and medium-high waist. The Japanese denim with extra stretch is made in a luxurious cotton blend and tightly hugs the contours of the body. Due to the shortened length, this model is perfect to match with a pair of statement shoes.
