Following the appointment of Creative Director Simon Miller, Fall 2014 saw the re-launch of Citizens of Humanity menswear as C-of-H Man. Spring 2015 sees the continuation of the new brand as Simon and Citizens of Humanity founder Jerome Dahan continue to develop the brand and expand product offering. Inspiration continues to come from California by way of Japan, creating a global denim brand with West Coast sensibility.
Key new shapes from Fall take greater prominence for Spring, with the Holden and Bowery slim fits at the forefront. Also continuing from Fall, the raw group continues to be a focal point for Miller and his design team. The Spring collection sees new additions of lighter washes as well as strong seasonal greys and whites. The denim jackets also continue to grow with new Pioneer and Century shapes added. And following later in the season for Summer, a new range of non denim chinos in array of colors, as well as the new Byron narrow fit. Following the success of the Holden and the Bowery fits, the Byron is the slimmest C of H Man fit to date, and will be available in a range of washes.
With more and more emphasis on authentic washes and premium fabrics, it seemed only natural that the C-of-H Man collection would evolve to include its very own Premium Vintage capsule collection each season. These pieces showcase the craftsmanship behind the label, and are all hand-sewn and finished. Drawing inspiration from unique vintage denim, these garments have an authenticity and character to them not seen in previous collections. Washes are in true blue shades, and distressing and mending are replicas of vintage garments. Come Summer there will also be a new military fatigue added to the group. These pieces are added building blocks on which C of H Man continues to grow.
With the combination of Jerome Dahan’s denim legacy, and Simon Miller’s innovative approach to design, Spring 2015 sees the C-of-H Man brand drawing inspiration from the past to continue to forge ahead.
