Britain’s denim label Lee Cooper is set to unveil a superior line of selvedge denim this October: The Cooper Collection by Lee Cooper references the brand’s heritage of manufacturing denim in East London since 1908 and is inspired by the jeans first offered by the brand.
The Capsule collection introduces a limited number of six styles that make up the backbone of the collection, which pays homage to Morris Cooper – the founder of the Lee Cooper brand. Each piece is handmade from Italian blue selvedge denim. Rich indigo in color, the fabric is raw, un-washed and reminiscent of heritage fabrics from Lee Cooper’s archives. Woven on authentic shuttle looms, the exclusive denim features a small 31” vintage weave and cutting-edge innovations, such as a natural non-synthetic stretch in select cuts.
The first, limited edition pieces from The Cooper Collection consists of three men’s and three women’s denim styles: a slim, straight and a tapered leg, with the design kept clean and classic across the entire offering.
The collection will be sold throughout the brand’s online shop and select denim retailers, with retail prices from £250.
