Check out the newest THVM Spring/Summer ’14 Women’s Lookbook. They really have quite some interesting denim. I especially would like to point out their interesting colorblocking – fun and edgy.
Thvm is a conceptual line of basics and beyond founded in 2009 by designer Brian Kim and his wife, Olga Nazarova, along with business partner Nicola Scagnolari. As the name implies, Thvm (pronounced “them”) is a creative collective whose form of expression includes not only clothing but a literary journal of the same name and a retail space inside a former paint factory in downtown Los Angeles. The space doubles as an art gallery and events venue where noted local artists such as Ishi Glinsky and Caitie Hawkins contribute installations.
The brand’s excellent fit has made it the favorite label of many. High-quality fabric with a good amount of stretch and Kim’s keen eye for cuts that flatter set the line apart from the mall masses. Kim, who made a name for himself via his Echo Park storefront Work Custom Jeans, says Thvm “takes away details that aren’t functional.” The look is definitely minimalist — in fact, the aesthetic seems very New York. One tends to think of a more embellished jean as the preferred Angeleno style, which is what inspired Kim and co. to do something different.
