Discovery of the Wild
The denim collection re-invents vintage with a modern take. The well worn looks, created by the passage of time are indispensable. Rips, frayed fabrics, and patches are applied in many different shapes and forms. The vintage look needs surfaces that transmit the impressions obtained by washing and wearing the jeans. Sewing marks and 3D effects are a big must for this look. Fading and stone-washing, as well as staining (to achieve a “soiled” and used look) are made with dirty, ice foam. Burning and perforations effects, produced by laser, contribute to the destroyed effect.
Substances like ice-dye, which is achieved by adding ice to dyes, create unexpected and authentic effects.
The Eco print, that uses plants, flowers, and herbs, produces colors that are subtle and faded for a vintage-y look.
