Clutch Magazine – CC Clutch Collection – Show Japan

In May Clutch magazine organised their CC – Clutch Collection - show in Yokohama – Japan. The CC show is initiated by Atsushi Matsushima, eitor-in-chief of Clutch Magazine, one of Japan’s leading men’s vintage style publications. In addition Clutch has asked partner magazine, Men’s File, to advise on the needs and wants of the European and American visitors as the aim is to make the three days as profitable as possible for all parties.

The event is a great set-up where it’s all about authentic craftsmanship and authentic products. In their own words: ”The Clutch Collection Show is a new concept in Japanese trade shows as it offers foreign buyers and exhibitors access to the huge Japanese market on its home territory. That means new markets to sell your product to if you are a manufacturer and new brands to buy from if you are a retailer. The “CC” Show should make your first direct business with Japan successful and stress free”.

My Archive II Book by Antonio di Battista

Last month during the 3rd edition of the Denim Boulevard event in Milan – Italy the second issue of the My Archive book range was launched. The My Archive II book is the follow-up from the first book by Antonio di Battista and gives you an insight in his extremely huge and rare denim and workwear collection. Antonio is a denim expert, designer and collector from Italy.

His second book gives you some highlights from his workwear collection. The book is filled with treasures which he found during his trips to the U.S., Japan and all over the world. The items are unbelievable cool. One of the best things of the book is that is gives you an insight into a lot of unknown brands. Brands which aren’t so common or never seen before. The book kick-off is an amazing pair of waist overalls from 1890, made by Sweet Orr. This is also the oldest pair in this book. Let the pics speaks for themselves and check out the historical items.

Denim Boulevard Banner

Last June the third edition of Denim Boulevard was a fact in Milan – Italy. An event for real denim lovers and indigo like minded people. The organisation did again an amazing job with the organisation of something different and something unique. This is what we need in these times of mass consuming. The program was of course all about denim, but one of the highlights was the new book launch from denim expert and collector Antonio di Battista. He made his second book, My Archive II. This new edition gives you again an insight in the rare and large collection from Antonio with the focus on vintage workwear styles. Really impressive! Tomorrow I will show you more about this in the next post.

As every event needs some good promo material Denim Boulevard teamed-up with Davidi Biondi to realize this. Davide Biondi (http://davidebiondi.tumblr.com) is a very talented graphic designer from Italy which makes extremely cool stuff. For this DB edition he made an old school denim window banner. The banner is made from selvage quality woven by the Italian Candiani mill. The result is amazing! Check it out here below! Thanks for sending one guys!

Denim Expo: Private Archive Jason Denham At Amsterdam Denim Days

During the Amsterdam Denim Days I organised a denim expo. For this expo I used the private collection from denim designer Jason Denham. Jason is the founder of the Amsterdam based Denham brand and has an extremely huge and rare collection. Jason collected the items within his long career where he travelled a lot to the U.S.A. and Japan for inspiration. One of his best items were displayed to show the visitors of the Blueprint event a bit of his collection. The Blueprint event was a big success, so can’t wait till next year for #3.

Seven Senses Handmade Selvage Denim Fabric: Handspun – Handwoven

Since last week the denim industry has a new denim mill. The official kick-off from this new handmade selvage denim fabric took place at the Kingpins fair in Amsterdam. The fabric is totally made by hand, handspun and handwoven, which is pretty rare. I am very exited about this new fabric as I work as a consultant for them. The Kingpins fair was the moment that all the buyers, designers and media saw this unique and traditional made fabric for the very first time. The fabrics are all made by hand in India. The threads are dyed with natural indigo and woven on old authentic wooden shuttle looms. The result is the best of the best with beautiful indigo colours. True heaven for every denimhead. One of the best parts is that the selvage is made with real silver and gold which come from old Indian sarees. The kick-off was a huge success!

The first Seven Senses collections contains are variety of several different shades of blue. Even a green fabric was added to the collection. The different types of blue depends how often the threads got in contact with the indigo. To promote the fabrics on a right way we asked two successful denim designers to make a piece of the first light coloured fabric. The collaborated designers are Paul Kruize (Paul Kruize Jeans) from Holland and Mohsin Sajid (Endrime) from the UK. Paul made a great jacket and Mohsin an amazing pair of jeans. Both made of heavy woven fabric which is uncommon in the denim industry. The result shows something new and fresh. Below the booth from Seven Senses at the Kingspins fair and the two promotional items. Keep an eye on this revolutionary denim fabric! Congrats with the launch Seven Senses crew!

Sneak Peak: Denim Expo Jason Denham

This week I will be in Amsterdam for the Amsterdam Denim Days. The first stop was the Kingpins denim fabric fair for 2 days and then 2 days Blueprint. For the Blueprint event I worked this time for the Denim Market and curated a denim expo with private items from the English denim designer Jason Denham – founder of the Denham brand. So no updates the upcoming days, but I guess I will meet a lot of indigo heads live on the events. It’s time to catch up with friends and talk about our blue denim passion.

To give you a sneak of what you can expect from the very cool denim expo here’s an old patched and repaired pants from The American Brand from the 1930′s. This pant is one of Jason’s favorite patched up work pants from his huge and rare archive. Hope to see you all at Blueprint Amsterdam!

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 Low Show Trade Show in Amsterdam – NL

This February there will be something really new and cool going to happen in Amsterdam – NL. It will be the kick-off of the first edition of a new trade show, called The Low Show. This initiative is founded by Kenneth Jaworski. Kenneth is not new in the business, he’s a well known and informed nice authentic guy who had the idea to start something different. In daily life he develops interior and design concepts. In his own words he describes his new project as; ”The Low Show is based around mens clothing and accessory brands that embody history, authenticity and quality and appreciate the importance of storytelling. These brands reference the past, but also look firmly to the future. This is just as much about where brands have been as where they are going. It is, most importantly, a show for today”. The brand list shows some really interesting and established clothing brands. Looking forward to this one. The show will start on the 16th till the 18th of February on the Westergasfabriek area. Good luck Kenneth with all the preperations for the first edition. See u there!

Kingpins Fair L.A. F/W 2015 – Something About Selvage Innovation

Selvage denim just won’t quit in the future. That’s no surprise as this is the classic way of making denim fabric. This movie shows how the exhibitors at the Kingpins fabric fair in Los Angeles took selvage to great new levels for F/W 2015. Corduroy, cool blends, deep gorgeous shades of indigo, and even stretch selvage. For me personally I only prefer the classic raw selvage, but great to see the new possibilities. Check it. By the way, the Kingpins show is coming to Amsterdam again on October the 29th and 30th. See you there!
