German brand Versuchskind is a denim brand based in Berlin, founded by the designers Tanja Kim Kupke and Thomas Hintz. The concept is to create each single product by hand, using the best available methods of tailoring and craftsmanship and combine it with experimentally evolved treatments and finishings.
Each garment is handcrafted, cut, sewn, washed and finished in German factories. The combination of tailored cuts, high-level craftsmanship, excellent materials and a unique patina, is what makes each piece an individual product.
The theme of this season are slates and béton brut. To create this character, each jean is made of heavy Italian selvedge or prime denim -from 12 – 14 oz. – and has a patina, compression and an asymmetric design.
I personally do not know Versuchskind’s jeans yet, but I do know that generally spoken, Italian made denim is of a topnotch quality, heavier weight and more on the rigid side, exactly how denim should actually be. Can’t wait to check out this brand next time I am in Europe!
