The Jeansmaker.. DENHAM
Denham was founded in 2008 by mister Jason Denham in Amsterdam. Having already established his reputation in the European market as a consummate “jeanmaker” known for mixing denim modernism with workwear tradition, he resolved that the jeans category needed an injection of something fresh, new and undeniably mouth-watering. Assembling a small like-minded team of international designers, So Denham set-up operations in Amsterdam.
Denham S14 captures the imagined adventures of a cadre of denim rebels exploring the ancient volcanic landscapes from the azores to the Izu Islands. For men the classic 1950’s rebel style – epitomized by authentic denim, french stripe and soft calf leather – is brought to life in a new range of premium 5-pocket styles crafted from the best Japanese, Italian and French denim fabrics as well
as breton stripe cut-and–sew tops and the new Bobber jacket in both leather and stretch gabardine.
Volcanic terrain has inspired updated approaches to monochrome. New laundry techniques produce fresh high notes and rich low tones within light ash and darker stoney grays. Natural textures are accented with vivid color influenced by molten lava, bright sun and pacific wildlife. The rebel style for women shows categories of vintage denim washes and bespoke artisan bleach finishes with Nappa leather skins tanned in indigo ash and dark lava in new biker inspired silhouettes.
A ‘scissor incorporated’ Japanese shiburi print has been utterly transformed with dramatic shifts in color and scale and is joined by ultramodern volcanic and tropical photo prints within the tops and dress collection. Luxurious Italian and Japanese woven qualities mix with innovative artisan knitting techniques to create a dynamic portrait of the Denham woman making her own way along the Pacific
Ring of Fire.
Blue and pure indigo dyestuff are always at the center of the Denham range. For S14 the hues run from pale sky blue to deep ocean indigo. New experiments in the world’s best mills have produced 2, 4, 8 and 16-dip qualities traveling from light to dark denim. These are complimented by chambrays reinvented with new bonding and coating treatments. For women the 5-pocket indigo offering has been injected with a celebration of print, color and pattern with bold new graphics wrapped around key fits from Denham’s new Category Five range. Underneath you will find pictures of their new SS14 collection.
