This week I went to check out what’s new with PRPS in their showroom here in NYC. I really don’t have to tell you that when I am at this showroom I feel like a kid in a candy store. I simply want EVERYthing, each single pair of jeans, in each wash and each style (size doesn’t matter LOL). And hey, I am not even a guy and PRPS only does men’s for now, at least. Awesome, stunning, out of the box, sick and insane jeans there. The PRPS showroom is every denimhead’s wet dream.
Let me start by telling you about a rad collaboration of Donwan, Mr. PRPS, and denim icon Lee. More is to come, so stay tuned ;-)!
Donwan, founder and designer of Prps, approaches denim with innovation all the while paying homage to the denim pioneers. When Lee approached Donwan and asked him to be part of their 125th year celebration program, he accepted with great honor. Donwan was given full creative control of the project. With the depth of Lee’s archives comprised of classic styling over the years, he chose to focus on the iconic attire. He experimented with his interpretation of vintage washes, which have set him apart in the denim market. From the shanks, to the signature Lee pocket and hang tag Lee prints illustrated inside the denim jacket, Donwan was able to meld his signature style and Lee’s rich history resulting in denim worth collecting.
