Denims in different shades of blue, incorporating diverse laundry techniques in order to reveal different nuances, are essential. The laundry an washing techniques focus on the contrast, ranging from raw denim to délavée.
Different nuances are used and applied in geometric patches, as well as in seams and hems. The frayed aspect is created by shredding and fraying methods in sheaths and by diversified cuts.
Washing and stone-washing techniques create different kinds of fading and stain effects. These are executed in large, small, as well as in more delicate proportions.
The visual and artistic aspect is reinforced by textures and through irregular surfaces, that are achieved by cutting unfinished forms and by using overlapping fabrics while cutting the denim.
