Denham Jeans x Art Comes First (ACF) Collaboration

Denham Jeans latest collaboration is with the two talented guys Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of Art Comes First. They did a collaboration project within the House Guest Artist series. The A.C.F.’s own collection, Avec ces Freres explored the power and symbolism of black this season so it was natural to reflect this concept in the Denham project as well, since at Denham; “If It’s Not Indigo, It’s Black”. The Denham design team asked Sam and Shaka to roll up their sleeves and develop their own unique tweaks on Denham signature styes in both 5-pocket and the tops collection. Check it out here below!

Vans X C2H4 Store Indigo Collab Shoes

The C2H4 Store, from Los Angels, teamed-up with Vans Shoes to create two special indigo editions. In the past we saw some more indigo dyed shoes like the Tenue de Nimes X Red Wing and Tenue de Nimes X Converse shoes, recently the Kassim Denim X Sperry Shoes and this upcoming September Eastpak will launch their special indigo bags. But as we can’t see this enough it’s great that C2H4 just launched their indigo special. They used two classics from Vans, the Old School and Slip On models. Both editions are dyed in indigo and decorated with Japanese boro patches. The result is beautiful and a perfect match with your rigid or worn-out jeans. Check them out at C2H4 Store!

Heddels X Winter Sessions Collab: Natural Indigo Bank Bag

My friends from the very respected denim platform ‘Heddels’ started something new. They launched the first product with their CO-OP series. The CO-OP series are collaborations with brands they admire to create limited runs of specialized products exclusively for ‘Heddels’ readers. The first CO-OP product is made with ‘Winter Sessions‘ are they developed a ‘Natural Indigo Bank Bag’. The collab bag is inspired by the bank bags which were the standard for almost all retail businesses to move their cash and checks from the store to the bank. The goal wasn’t to keep people from running off with the money, but just make sure it wasn’t tampered with and kept everyone honest. The ‘Heddels X Winter Sessions’ bank bag is produced with carry goods brand Winter Session and made entirely at their in-house workshop in Denver, Colorado. Their design is based off of vintage bank deposit bags from the 1950′s and 60′s, which featured a locking zipper. They replaced the lock with a snap leather stash pocket that secures the zipper in place.

The bank bag materials which are used include:

  • · Cone Mills Natural Plant Indigo 16oz. selvedge denim
  • · Hermann Oak veg-tanned 4oz. cowhide leather
  • · Vintage mid-century cotton-taped Talon Zippers
  • · Also included is a laser-cut and engraved commemorative wooden nickel

The Bank Bag will be available for sale on the Heddels Shop here: http://shop.heddels.com at 12pm noon EST on Monday, March 7.

Congrats guys with this new CO-OP milestone! Looking forward to see the next collab already, but I know it would be an one of a kind as well. Keep up the good work!

Endrime X Denim Boulevard Indigo Dyed Jacket

The video below is made for the Endrime X Denim Boulevard collaboration jacket. Mohsin Sajid (founder of the Endrime brand) dyed an ecru jacket into a bath of natural indigo in his atelier in London -UK. In the video you can see the magical process of indigo, the colour will change from green into blue when the jacket comes out of the indigo bath and comes in contact with oxygen. The more dips you do, the more dark blue the item gets. Always great to see Mohsin doing those crafted skills by himself. Keep on going Mohsin!

Indigo People X Denham Jeans Collab

Indigo People teamed-up again with Denham Jeans after their first successful collaboration. For the Spring 2016 collection, there are again two scarves that embody the spirits of both brands to show their love for indigo and authentic craftsmanship. Both scarves are created following the traditional Ikat technique, which is a resist dyeing process by binding the designed pattern on the weaving yarns with a tight wrap. After repeatedly dipped the bound yarns in natural indigo to reach the dark blue colour, the bindings are then removed to create the pattern directly on the handloom. Because the design is created in the yarns the pattern is visible at both sides of the fabric.

The Toru scarf has a simple yet contemporary plaid design that is formed by the irregular Ikat yarns in both the warp and the weft direction of the scarf. The rain effect of these ikat yarns gives an apparent blurriness to the plaid.

The Hajime scarf’s graphic design is inspired by Denham’s logo. The scissors have been abstracted and bound on the weft yarns. This weft Ikat technique is much slower to weave because the weft yarns must be carefully adjusted to maintain the clarity of the design. A misplaced yarn will destroy the entire pattern. It’s a highly labor-intensive process to create the scissor pattern of this scarf.

Both scarves will be available in the official Denham stores. Congrats guys with this second collab, it looks stunning as always!

Indigo People X Denham Jeans Scarf Collab

Indigo People and Denham Jeans teamed up with a nice scarf collab. After a short informal meeting between Indigo People and Jason Denham of Denham The Jeanmaker during a trade show they decided to create something together to share their same indigo passion. Indigo People’s love for indigo and authentic craftsmanship and Denham’s worship for tradition and contemporary design refinement complete each other’s signature and form the fundament for these special edition scarves. The scarves are made from raw hand spun cotton yarns that are manually dyed in natural indigo, which creates an imperfect beauty that fits in an authentic jeans attitude. Blending the traditional open weave and ikat weaving technique with a refined modern look, the two timeless scarves embody both brands’ spirits. The scarves will be available for the true indigo lovers in the official Denham stores and Denham’s dealers.

Handmade Loom State Jeans by Candiani – Jean School & Amfi

candiani-mill-italy-loom-state-long-john-blog-amsterdam-denim-days-denim-production-selvage-picanol-loom-1950-authentic-live-event-limited-edition-jeans-pair-selvedge-handmad

One of the highlights last April during the second edition of the Amsterdam Denim Days – Blueprint event was the collaboration between the Italian Candiani denim mill, Jean School / House of Denim and fashion institute Amfi. They collaborated to make live the best pair of jeans you’ve ever seen! The first 100% made in Amsterdam selvage jeans. Something for the denim history books.

The fabric was made live on an old Picanol shuttle loom from the ’50′s. The sound of the loom was magical! The Italian Candiani mill (started in 1938) is the only mill in Europe which still weaves on a day to day basis with these small, machine looms, which drove the first denim boom in the Western world. The result in a unique denim quality.

During the event these three partners could only create 30 of these exclusive custom jeans. So only for a few lucky bastards. Candiani made the denim fabric live and the students from Jean School and Amfi created the personal made jeans on the spot. You could choose your own fit, fabric and weight, buttons, rivets, pockets, patch, colour of thread, etc. This was heaven for every denimhead. I was honoured to be one of those lucky selected people.

The Picanol shuttle loom from the ’50′s.

Edwin Jeans X Superga Sneaker Collaboration

Japan meets Italy in this sneaker collaboration. Edwin Jeans teamed-up with Superga footwear for this Spring Summer ’15. Superga started 100 years ago in Turan producing shoes with vulcanised rubber soles and the Classic Superga 2750 Heritage style was born. For this collab they produced a tonal version of their iconic canvas tennis shoe. Crafted from a fully breathable cotton, the simple canvas silhouette has been stripped back, in-keeping with the ancient Japanese ‘Shibui’ aesthetic of appearing simple but including subtle details.

White sneakers are the best to wear with an unwashed denim so the indigo from the jean can bleed onto the white canvas. One of my personal favorites. Perfect collab with one of the oldest Japanese denim brands. The sneakers are available in Edwin stores located in Paris, Berlin and London.

Something really exciting is going to happen this week on the 2nd edition of Amsterdam Denim Days at Blueprint. Italy’s premium denim mill, Candiani, and the industry’s finest apprentices unite: students of AMFI and the Jean School / House of Denim. They will co-create 30 exclusive custom jeans with Candiani Denim. Candiani Denim’s loom weaves the fabric live, right then and there, and the students will be creating your customised jeans on the spot.  This “loom state” journey that starts and ends with jeans created in the heart of the contemporary denim capital of the world. It results in one of the most exclusive denims possible.

Candiani Denim will install a 1950s’ Picanol loom and a Denim Atelier to take denim lovers on a journey from thread to finished product.  Candiani is the only mill in Europe which still weaves on a day to day basis with these small, machine looms, which drove the first denim boom in the Western world. They result in a unique denim quality.

As they can only make 30 pairs during the 2 days of the event, you have to be selected to buy one of these 100% Made in Amsterdam pair of selvage jeans. The lucky ones can select the denim weight, styling and trimming details. You will have to pay a symbolic donation. The donations will be used to fund a Denim Archive in the new to open Denim City / home of House of Denim at de Hallen.

Looking forward to see this authentic loom creating the first Amsterdam pair of jeans. See you this week at the Amsterdam Denim Days: Zuiveringshal, Westergasfabriek.
