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