From heritage workwear-inspired looks up to destroyed jeans featuring patches or paint splatters, the invigorating denim styles wore by Denim PV visitors were refreshing and showcased very well most of the key trends this season. Have a look below!
Namhee Lee, senior denim designer at Bershka
Namhee's pinstriped denim jacket was an eye-catcher and got our attention immediately. When asked about the most surprising innovation at the show, she answers: "Jeanologia's laser technology that allows to customize the jeans' hems."
Jose Medina, laser designer at Jeanologia
The hems of the jeans that he was wearing were customized using Jeanologia's laser technology. We forecast that customizable hems will be big in fall/winter 2017-18!
Jade Franicianio of Li & Fung Ltd. in Manchester
Denim bibs are said to become mainstream in fall/winter 2016-17. Jade got one step ahead with this one featuring stripes (again!) and two big leg pockets. She was happy to get to know more about technologies to produce denim with a very reduced water consumption that were presented at the show.
Jose Luis Vives of JWJ Brand of Clothes
Our favorite items are the dark-blue jacket and the thin neck scarf wrapped around his neck. Jose Luis recommended us to have a look at Nihon Menpu Mills, one of Japan's premium fabric makers.
Yasemin Sertkaya of Deridesen, Istanbul-based label manufacturer
The funny denim-freak patches that decorated Yasemin's ripped jeans were the most appropriate accessory to visit the fair.
Rupert Stockinger, founder of 2g8er
We are firm believers that denim is art and so is Rupert, who rocked in a Levi's vintage jeans with self-made paint splatters.
José "Pepín" Vives of JWJ Brand of Clothes
Just like his son (featured above), José bets on a heritage-inspired look with modern touches like the bold print shirt underneath his jacket.
Ana María González aka Anamgontri, denim designer at Bershka
Ana María was ready to hit any summer music festival with her look. Besides the pop Minnie Mouse-shaped sunglasses, the badges on her denim jacket and the faded tie-dye t-shirt round off the look.
