The Tinkering Tailors from Art Comes First (A.C.F.) Turn to Denham for their latest Collab.
Denham Does It Again
Over the years, Dutch denim brand Denham have come through with some pretty special collabs. From handcrafting their own unique fabric with London Cloth, getting together with their fellow Amsterdamers Rene and Meno from Tenue de Nimes, calling on Converse or teaming up with our friends over at Indigo People, the list goes on and on. And the latest collab is no less impressive.
A Unique Take on an Already Unique Brand
Jason and his team invited the hugely influential designers, stylists and all-round creatives; Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of Art Comes First to give their own unique take on the Denham style.
With the pair’s obvious love for the monotone, seen in their own collection this season, matching up perfectly with the Dehham mantra of “If It’s Not Indigo, It’s Black”. The Denham design team worked alongside Sam and Shaka while they rolled up their sleeves to develop their own unique tweaks on Denham signature styles in both 5-pocket and the tops collection.
When viewing the collection for the first time, you instantly recognise the pair’s experience as Savile Row trained tailors. The pieces they choose to work on were already great examples of well-tailored garments and the accents and tweaks like the blind zippers added to the Bolt jeans simply accentuate the tailored look.
The Stand Out Piece
But, as suckers for tradition, the stand out piece which has us drooling over here at the Rope Dye HQ is their take on the good ol’ chore jacket. Updated with a much more contemporary fit but still maintaining the ethos of its inspiration.
See It For Yourself
The collection is launched on the 15th of September at the Denham flagship store in Amsterdam, if you are in the neighbourhood, stop by and check out the pieces for yourself.
