Worn is a collaboration from The Vintage Showroom – London and trend forecasters and denim gurus Sue Barrett (formerly WGSN) and freelance denim and streetwear trend forecaster Katy Rutherford (creative director of STORY mfg.) The Worn publication is about global street style-trends and vintage garments. It combines extensive vintage knowledge with a trended snapshot of current global street-styles. Volume 1 was launched last year and is looking really nice. If you missed it, check it here: www.long-john.nl/worn-vol-1. There are still a few copies left.
The second volume of Worn celebrates the beauty and simplicity of functional military design: treasured, worn and faded through the decades and again marrying key colours to the Pantone colour chart. The new Worn Vol. 2 is out now! Looking forward to see it live! Well done and see you this October in Amsterdam!
