Hardy jeans, pretty nostalgia
As many of you may have imagined, to give our Hardy women's trousers a name, we were inspired by the French singer, model and actress Françoise Hardy , wife of the Parisian artist Jacques Dutronc , whom we have already told you about on other occasions.
She is one of the most emblematic singer-songwriters in the country, a symbol of French song since she began performing, already in the sixties, to perform in numerous Parisian clubs, accompanied by her faithful acoustic guitar. Françoise Hardy's songs told sad stories, full of nostalgia and melancholy, like the classic 'Tous les garçons et les filles'.
The French artist soon became an inimitable mass idol, managing to carve out her own space on the French music scene to this day.
Many artists provided verses, songs and illustrations, among other works, to this great French beauty: Bob Dylan dedicated his poem 'For Françoise Hardy at the Sena's Edge…' to her on the back cover of his album 'Another Side Of Bob Dylan ', 1964; and Jacques Prévert was inspired by Hardy to write the poem 'A green plant'; in the comic 'Psychédélique' -by Guy Peellaert- appears a heroine inspired by Françoise Hardy.
In addition, the singer Françoise Hardy was a source of inspiration to compose the songs 'Una parisina' -written by Stan Cuesta and performed by Bill Pritchard-, 'Portrait of you' -written by Patrick Loiseau and sung by Dave Levenbach-, and 'Françoise ' –performed by Sharleen Spiteri-, among other songs.
Such was the impact that Hardy caused and continues to cause, that we decided to pay tribute to him with one of our most stylish and demanded jeans. We are talking about the Hardy, a timeless basic jean, with a medium-low waist, skinny fit and elastic fabric. Available in various colors, washes and finishes, these pants are perfect for countless occasions, a classic that never goes out of style, like the acclaimed Françoise Hardy.
