“Jeans are a real map of the way we live our lives wearing them,” says Rob Pruitt, renowned contemporary artist and J Brand‘s newest collaborator. The denim-sporting artist—known for his gradient paintings—has put his mark on that map with a standout collection of denim for men and women that reflect his dégradé design.

The J Brand X Rob Pruitt collection, available online and in stores now, consists of printed dégradé denim as well as bespoke hand-painted styles. We dropped in on the artist’s studio to see the spray-painting in action—and listen in on some musings about the iconic medium from Pruitt himself. Watch the video below, and then shop the collection. The only question after that: to wear them, or to frame them?
