It’s a fashion week where everyone is wearing denim to every show and party. Amsterdam Denim Days features  expos, music, seminars, vintage market, food & drinks, workshops and lots more. It also includes the Kingpins Show, an invite-only industry denim trade show which launched in New York City in 2004.

The good-looking, well-dressed people you see before you were lucky enough to be there this year. If you’re a denim nerd, Amsterdam is where you want to be in April. Hopefully see you there next year!

The Magic of Mixed Color’s Indigo and Appliqué Denim Jackets

by Kristen Philipkoski

ee87cf_4e9804bd636248aa99cb2be2fb4b7fc8I love it when I’m browsing Instagram and I come across something really magical. That’s what happened this morning when I encountered Mixed Color. I’m at a loss for words over their appliqué denim jackets, and that doesn’t happen very often. Their colorful dresses and indigo pieces are also incredible. One of each, please!

The Best of the Bangladesh Denim Expo

by Kristen Philipkoski

bangladesh denim expo
Twice each year in the spring and fall, Bangladesh hosts denim brands, designers, buyers, and other members of the denim trade at the Bangladesh Denim Expo. It may seem like an unlikely venue for a denim trade show, but over the past decade or so, Bangladesh has become a respected supplier of denim and jeans across the globe.

The expo, which launched in 2014, features acres of booths where denim brands display their latest designs and innovations. The show also features talks and seminars on health, safety, sustainability and trends.

This year’s trade show just wrapped up, and since I couldn’t be there, I’ve been pouring over all the photos I can find from the event. Amy Leaverton, author of Denim Dudes had a prominent social media presence at the show, and photographer Sadia Rafique was on hand to document the event.

Check out some of the Bangladesh Expo highlights below!

Madewell’s Summer Denim Lookbook Will Make You Need a Vacay Now

by Kristen Philipkoski

2016-may1-branding-img14

 

The look and feel of Madewell’s summer denim lookbook is making me want to hop on the next plane to Cape Cod or The Hamptons—or any place near the ocean thats hot in the day and a bit cooler at night. There’s nothing quite like the feel of getting dressed up in your favorite jeans after spending the day at the beach. Denim + cocktail time = the start of a successful coast side evening.

Bloggers in Denim: Mountain and Cloud and Double Denim

by Kristen Philipkoski

untitled-0018I love it when I discover a new blogger with amazing style, and I love it even more when she’s a denim enthusiast like myself. That’s what happened when I came across Helen of Mountain and Cloud (great blog name, by the way!).

I’m obsessed with her double denim ensemble above. The Current/Elliot dress is perfection combined with the flared jeans and amazing white booties. I found several more covetable denim outfits where that came from while perusing the rest of her blog.

A Picture of Denim Addiction

by Kristen Philipkoski

I came across this video in the Racked archives, and although it’s about a year old, this is a woman after my own heart, so I had to share.

Denim all day every day!

This Is the Strongest Denim in the World

by Kristen Philipkoski

Australian motorcycle denim brand Saint has designed a denim incorporating Dyneema, a microfiber reported to be the strongest single layer fabric in the world, according to High Snobiety.

Produced in collaboration with Italian denim mill Berto E.G. Industria Tessile S.r.l. and technical yarn spinners Filtes International S.r.l., Dyneema denim can endure about 30 meters of post-crash slide time over asphalt without ripping, compared to the 4 meters regular denim can handle.

Cool! The video above gives a sneak peek of the project, stay tuned for more next month.

It’s Denim Day! Wear Jeans to Support Victims of Sexual Violence

by Kristen Philipkoski

mother jeans
In 1992, a 45-year-old driving instructor raped an 18-year-old girl while he was supposed to be teacher her to drive. He told her he would kill her if she told anyone. The brave young woman told her parents anyway, and they helped her press charges. And she won the case!

But in 1998, the Denim Day, the Italian Supreme Court decided they needed to revisit the case. They decided it was the woman’s fault for wearing tight jeans—surely she must have helped the perpetrator remove them.

The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence dubbed it Denim Day, and created an annual campaign to support all sexual assault victims by wearing jeans on Denim Day, the third Wednesday of April, Sexual Violence Awareness Month.

More than 5.3 million women have promised to wear jeans today. Will you join them? If you do, make your jeans as tight as you want ’em—and enjoy these photos of tight jeans while you’re at it.

Rachel Comey’s Ridiculously Cool Denim

by Kristen Philipkoski

Lately it seems that more often than not, when a denim garment turns my head, it’s by Rachel Comey. The high-waisted, wide-leg jeans, the frayed dresses and tops, and the drawstring skirt are all calling  my name. She can apparently do no wrong. See what I mean?

The Coolest Not-Jeans Denim So Far This Season

by Kristen Philipkoski

My denim fanaticism does not by any means end with jeans. I love a good denim top, dress, skirt, bag… give it to me in denim and I love it all the more. And I love seeing what brands come up with when they’re thinking outside the jean. Here are some of my favorite denim pieces so far this season. What are yours?

Get Inspired by the Jemima Kirke Spring Campaign for Current/Elliot

by Kristen Philipkoski

jemima for current elliott

I love Jemima Kirke in fashion campaigns because she’s such an unexpected model, i.e. she’s not ultra skinny. But she’s also so intense in a photo and really makes you want to keep looking. Her spring 2016 Current/Elliott campaign is a perfect example.

Also I’d like the kimono denim top left, please, if anyone was wondering.
