DENHAM S/S 2010 – “The Foreign Office” Collection

January 4, 2010

A top favorite of ours, Amsterdam’s DENHAM the Jeanmaker continues to establish itself as a top-notch denim brand. While launching its new and innovative website the Dutch label introduces its spring/summer 2010 collection titled “The Foreign Office”. DENHAM’s primary inspiration for the season holds a strong stylistic nod to the golden era of the “gentleman spy” operating in hot-weather cultures of north Africa, India or Arabia, think Peter O’Toole in Lawrence of Arabia or Michael Caine in 1968’s Play Dirty.

The new season sees a further evolution of DENHAM’s emerging utility-tailoring approach. The gritty craft ethic expected of a hardcore jeanmaker including evocative new wash, resin and aging recipes is dramatically updated with unexpected soft-tailoring techniques and is then further modernized by an arsenal of distinct and inventive details. Much of the denim developments this season are inspired from the DENHAM GARMENT LIBRARY – the labels unique archive of authentic design specimens. In conjunction with the collection’s theme, a lot of attention was also given to Khakis and the invention of “modern chinos”, manifesting in new cuts and finishes.

    You can also find Denham at my new store SUBURB denim. Just outside the centre of Amsterdam.
    Also in a few weeks I launch my new webshop. I’m a fan of Denham, but also from Lee, Wrangler, Blue Blood. From June I also sell denims form Nudie en Edwin. Just look at my website or visit the store!
