Female denim-heads rejoice! The answer to your prayers is here. At long last a raw denim jean made by women for women. Gamine Workwear is a New England based company who specializes in no-nonsense workwear that is utilitarian yet easy on the eyes and most importantly on the body. The line is designed by Taylor Johnston, Manager of the Gardens and Greenhouses at the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum in Boston, Massachusetts. Johnston sums up the company’s values best herself-
Gamine has a variety of other products in their shop made and sourced with the same focus on local design and a sustainable and transparent production process. Pictured below is the hand-dyed indigo hemp tee who’s claim to fame is being one of the most rugged teeshirts on the market. They also have a handful of vintage overalls.
After years of public school education the association between September and that back-to-school anticipation has been burnt onto our synapses. This antsy feeling often results in a strong compulsion to get prepared for the changes autumn brings, in other words, binge-shopping. The women on the Denim Therapy team always turn first to ASOS to satisfy this urge. The UK online retailer started in 2000 and launched ASOS Marketplace in 2010. This new expansion to their site serves as a platform for independent boutiques to sell their goods. We try to support our fellow small businesses whenever we can and ASOS Marketplace is a pretty good place to start if you like the styles the online giant sells. Check out our favorite denim pieces for fall sold on the Marketplace below.

There’s always a lot of back and forth about the how, when and if of washing your jeans, but when it comes down to that moment when you need a little spot treating or a full-on wash, it’s nice to know you’ve got a denim-specific tool to do so. That’s why we love The Laundress’ Denim Care Set:
“The Laundress’ innovative, allergen-free blend of detergent, fabric softener and colour guard cleans and fights fading. The fabric spray freshens and removes odor – and not just from denim. A few spritzes of this non-toxic formula on bedding, car seats, luggage or shoes will do the trick.” (Mr. Porter)

Be still our hearts… it’s the Alexander McQueen Harrington Leather-Trimmed Waxed Denim Jacket. “Denim jackets became synonymous with rebel cool throughout the 20th Century and this aligns with Alexander McQueen‘s distinctive aesthetic. This tactile waxed black piece is bolstered with a leather collar and detailed with slanted zip pockets, imbuing it with an element of hard-edged masculinity. It’s the kind of piece that will wear impeccably with age, adding to its appeal.” (Mr. Porter)

We’ve got a serious thing for the Public School Washed-Denim and Leather Jacket.

Pairing well with chinos or dark wash jeans, this is a great transition piece to carry you from summer to fall. Denim and leather jackets were a big trend last fall, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere.
