Here is what the PRPS guys tell us about their newest denims:
Donwan Harrell, the designer and founder of PRPS, continues the evolution of his women’s line (launched Spring 2017) with a collection that stays true to the core DNA of the brand and builds upon the unique techniques and innovations used by Harrell.
The brand continues its vintage Americana for its second spring collection, introducing six new silhouettes and a variety of distinctive embellishments applied on several denim pieces.
The collection’s standout silhouette is the culotte shape, an ankle-length trouser, cut with
very full legs to resemble a skirt. This style is available in an inverted pleat option in medium stoned and bleach as well as in a dyed jet black and features an exposed zipper fly.
Harrell introduces unique ways of pricking, ripping, and repairing denim, noticeably found
in his men’s collection and now introduced to the female consumer.
A tri-color skinny jean consists of three different denim fabrics, all in various shades of indigo and washed independently, sewn together to create a fashion-forward and on-trend style.
Unexpected fabrics make an appearance in the collection, specifically a pair of jeans, incorporating tapestry fabric as an insert underneath the distressing.
Outerwear pieces include a two-toned denim jacket with a “cold shoulder” effect., inspired by the rise of women utilizing oversized men’s denim jackets. Another option is the integration of two denim jackets, both washed independently, but then sewn
together with a off the shoulder look.
Metal eyelet embellishments decorate key stand out styles and include a mini skirt with
an enzyme stone wash and intriguing uneven hem.
There is also a oversized denim vest option containing metal eyelets strategically applied throughout with interlocking chain links.
A two-piece mesh “overtop” tee with a cinched extended hem, is another new and interesting part of the collection.
The traditional Amex and Camaro fits were given noticeably detailed embellishments for
spring. The spring Amex jean includes a woven-esque pattern, achieved through a special laser cutting technique in which the denim fabric is precisely spot lasered.
The Camaro fit incorporates the lace up trend. Harrell applied the lace up motif along the ankles of the pant.
Newly introduced for spring 2018, the Bel-Air silhouette, is a loose fit. The spring style of the Bel-Air utilizes a raw edge technique, giving it an instant elevated look.
