The Second Edition of Amsterdam Denim Days

Last year the first edition was held of the ‘Amsterdam Denim Days’. After this big success the second edition is already coming to town this April! Amsterdam will be turning blue again for six whole days. It will start on the 13th till the 18th. During these six days you can go to cool store events in the City Center, visit the denim fabric fair Kingpins and of course the great Blueprint event. For the Blueprint event I curate an amazing inspirational denim expo with private archive items from Jason Denham (founder of the Denham brand). Besides that I am also involved into the Flea Market. The event will be the place to be for every denimhead; two days full of music, lectures, expo’s, indigo dye workshops, special brand activations from Candiani, ISKO, G-star, KOI, Scotch, etc. In short, it will be a melting pot for everybody with blue blood in their veins. Come and join the second edition, it’s going to be a one for sure. Below some images to fresh up you mind from the legendary first edition. And check the whole blue program on their site.

Sneak Peak: Denim Expo at Upcoming Amsterdam Denim Days

At this moment I am working on a really cool new denim expo with private denim items from Jason Denham (Denham Jeans). The expo is part of the upcoming Amsterdam Denim Days, www.amsterdamdenimdays.com. You can see the expo on the Blueprint event which will be held on the 17th and 18th of April. I will use for the expo only the best of the best, rare vintage items from Jason’s personal archive. As he built an extremely huge and cool archive during his long career it is a true blue denim paradise at his HQ in Amsterdam. So come and join the blue event in April and see where this denim master takes his inspiration from. Below a sneak peak of the expo, an old and totally worn-out Evis Jeans from Japan. Hope to see you in Amsterdam!

Opening New Denham Jeans Store Antwerp – Belgium

Yesterday the very successful brand Denham Jeans opened their first stand-alone store in Antwerp – Belgium. The store is based in the Lombardenvest 32. To open the store in Antwerp was a natural next step because of the international fashion and design heritage from this beautiful city. The 65 square meters store carry selections from the men and women collection. The main focus are the 5-pockets. The store has a uniform Denham look and feel, they combined old vs new. But as always they put some specials elements in it. The counter looks extremely cool which is made from American yard-sticks. Over all is the store a warm welcome for the city which could use some blue denim power. Congrats and good luck Denham family with this new milestone!

The First Edition of The Low Show Amsterdam

Yesterday I went to first edition of the new tradeshow The Low Show at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam – NL. It was the last day of the three days event. The ingredients of this new event were perfect; great location, super list of exhibitors, the display furniture were amazing and the catering was more than perfect! When I entered the fair it was like coming home. Cosy and relax vibe, the music wasn’t too loud and I was surrounded by like minded people who share the same passion for authenticity. All the exhibitors were brands with craftsmanship and only made from the best materials. It was all about storytelling products. Founder Kenneth Jaworski did something different and something new. Great new initiative with a lot of potential for the future. Much respect for this first big step. Looking forward to the 2nd edition! Keep it up guys.

The Global Denim Awards is an innovative initiative, six of the world’s premier denim mills with six emerging designers.

Denham Jeans Repair Corner at Westside Store Den Bosch – NL

Last weekend Westside store in Den Bosch – NL organised a great day full of specials. One of the specials was the Denham Jeans repair corner where you could fix your favourite pair of worn-out jeans. Clinton from Denham is a true craftsman as it comes to repairing, so I decided to do some repairs on my two years old Eat Dust jeans fit 73. The result is super nice, and I am ready for round 2! Thanks Clinton, see you soon!
