Why haven’t we yet thought about this – today we are wearing tomorrow’s vintage jeans! How very obvious and how very interesting!
With a theme- #designedinnovation, Denimsandjeans debuts at the Japanese Market March 4th and 5th at Sunshine City, Tokyo with over 45 denim companies, including 11 from Japan.
Companies like Kurabo, Kuroki, Collect – Japan Blue, Nihon Menpu, and SAAB, are some of the companies exhibiting the Japanese aesthetics at this very first International Denim B2B denim show.
Since the day of show announcement, the show has been attracting global attention, as well as lots of interests from local and international buyers.
The presence of renowned denim connoisseurs from the USA and Europe has been confirmed as well. They will participate at the show in many different capacities.
One of the first confirmed participants is Stefano Aldighieri – ex design director of Levis. He will be presenting a seminar, “Tomorrow’s Vintage”, talking about the influence of vintage in contemporary jeans design.
During his presentation, he will talk about main sources, the key elements we look for, and share his knowledge on recent products/innovation/trends which could become tomorrow’s vintage reference points.
