This is about the most insane brand I have seen in months. This is the making of a new cult brand. This is so outside of the box and sick, I cannot even describe it. How can you describe vibes and feelings…..well, enough drama, I am sure you know what I am getting at. I stumbled over this brand just a few days ago at Barney’s. It was love + lust + addiction at first sight. Every single item I checked out was cool, I am serious, dudes, I am not that easily impressed after all these years dealing with denim. I am smitten.
The backside: ohhhhhh well, these are all men’s stuff. BUT, aren’t we in the girls-wear-guys-clothes mode right now! Ha, all set. I am good. This is the brand that will be my boyfriend everything. My boyfriend jeans, my boyfriend shirts and sweats.
“Siki Im Launches DEN IM, an Extension Line
In case the sheer range that German-born, New York-based Siki Im, showed between his highly conceptual prison-inspired Spring/Summer 2014 collection and his art-infused yet very wearable Fall/Winter 2014 collection is not enough of an indication that this is a designer worth watching (and wearing), his recently-launched extension line, DEN IM, surely is. While the newest addition to the SIKI IM brand, which Im says is ideal for vacation or weekends, is a bit more casual than the main collection, don’t be misled by the name. DEN IM is not your average jeans collection. According to the designer (who has experience with denim from his days at K Karl Lagerfeld), “DEN IM is not just jeans. It is truly an extension line since the main collection doesn’t have jeans or cut and sew.” The collection does include some jeans (obviously). The denim trousers simultaneously – available in three different cuts – pay homage to the traditional 501 details but push the traditional design forward, as we have come to expect from Im. Additional pieces include track jackets, cotton fleece sweatshirts and hoodies with cool zip-details, cotton twill.”
