Denim is back with a vengeance. Actually, denim never really went anywhere; it’s just been keeping a low profile. But not anymore. Not in Spring/Summer ’15. Denim in all its raw utilitarian glory is being resurrected and redefined. From double denim to 1990’s distressed, from different styles to old school vintage fits, Breakbounce’s Spring/Summer ‘15 collection is inspired by classic industrial looks. It’s all about reinterpreting the old classic in new ways.
Fabric and Construction
There’s nothing worse than a pair of jeans that look brand new. Breakbounce goes above and beyond in its Dutch craftsmanship to give our denims a lived in, worked out effect. The handcrafted “notching and grinding” technique makes the jeans look, well, notched and ground – and that’s a good thing, because the last thing you want to be wearing is a newly pressed pair of “Dad Jeans.” (Sorry, Dad.) At the same time, knitted fabrics are used in construction for a characteristically soft feel. Looking “Street Cool” is one thing, but you want to be comfortable too, right!?
Washing and Detailing
Denim is fabricated with Indigo and White yarn to give it a variety of shades, from raw black to sun-bleached and everything in between. It comes down to this. Guys don’t all like the same colored jeans. Variety is the spice of life… yadayadayada.
More importantly, you need to know how to mix and match denim to your shirt and shoes. A light-colored shirt doesn’t go well with light, bleached out denim. You need to create contrast. If you’re rocking a pair of washed-out jeans, match it with a light, casual striped shirt and a pair of brown desert boots. Or if you don’t like boots, how about a light-colored sneaker? What you don’t want to wear, however, is a dark colored shoe that’s going to blend into your denim jeans.
The beauty of denim is its versatility. So you want a slightly sporty look? No worries. Denims come in various forms, from structured boot cuts to sporty joggers.
Denim provides countless options and looks. Don't just see at it as a radical fabric. Instead, look at it as an opportunity to express your personal style.
And then take that style to the street. Huuuaaa!
