Shopping and Info readers, I had the pleasure of interviewing the husband and wife design team from Serfontaine denim recently and have the interview here for you to read:

1.) Where did you get your start in designing? And how did you decide to start your own line?

Mik: Maria and I started Serfontaine eight years ago, in the late ‘90’s. It was a different time for jeans back then, vintage jeans were the best available so we decided to create a line with some of those influences.

Maria: Jeans available to women were very unflattering. There was definitely a demand for jeans with an improved fit that eliminates those pesky muffin tops.

2.) What is your daily inspiration?

Mik: Our passion for denim and achieving a perfect shape jean for every woman’s body type is our biggest inspiration. We have studied body types and believe that there is a fit for every woman. We use the best materials to ensure that our jeans are as comfortable as they are flattering.

3.) Where do you shop? Who are your favorite designers?

Maria: I do lots of vintage shopping. Barney’s Co-Op always has ground breaking designers. I also love Balenciaga and Versace.

4.) Who are your celebrity inspirations when dressing your models?

Maria: We are inspired by a variety of celebrities: Salma Hayek, Rachel Bilson, Jessica Alba, Alicia Keys.

5.) When did you know you wanted to design clothing?

Maria: Since I was a little girl, growing up in Spain. Fashion has always been very influential in my life. (They are an international couple- Mik is from Cape Town, South Africa).

6.) What is the best part of your day?

Mik: The end of the day, being together with our kids and hearing about their day.

7.) What is it like working as a husband and wife team?

Mik: It’s great! Our strengths compliment each other. Maria is sensitive to fit and what women want out of their jean. She is also insightful to trend. My strengths lye in garment innovation: such as the wash formulas, stitching and fiber innovation.

8.) What advice do you have for young aspiring designers?

Mik: Be true to yourself and your brand. Believe in what you are doing and remember why you decided to pursue it.

9.) If I were to buy 2 pieces from your collection- which 2 pieces should I buy for Spring?

Mik: Our zipper jean and our cut off short. Both will be staple items in your spring wardrobe.

Maria: The Sweetheart jean in all leg openings and washes is a year-round staple and our signature basic.

10.) Is there any thing you dislike about what you do?

Maria: There are things with any job that you like less than others. We are very lucky to work together in an industry that we love and with a dynamic team around us.

11.) Do you like feedback from the people who wear your clothes? Do you often hear the feedback?

Mik: Yes, we love feedback! Continually improving our jeans is what we are about and what better way than receiving feedback.

12.) Do you have a pet? A plant? Do you care about being ECO Chic? What do you do to help the environment in work and in personal life?

Maria: We do what we can to help the environment. We were one of the first companies to use organic standards in our wash. On a personal level, we recycle, carpool – we want to teach our children about the importance of caring for our environment leading by example.

Check out some of the styles that Mik and Maria suggest our readers purchase as spring staples.
