Were you at the BLK DNM grand opening early last month? For those of us who weren’t, here is behind-the-scenes footage, shot by Marius Crowne, of the store opening, from set-up to flowing vodka. Keep your eyes peeled, because Johan Lindeberg is seen in several shots chatting up his guests.
While you’re there, the ladies might want to check out Jeans 6 for women, which is a high rise jean, and Jeans 15 for men, which is a slight drop-crotch for men, with fuller thigh openings which narrow at the ankle. Hurry: this is reportedly a temporary store, which might be open for another week or two more. BLK DNM’s New York City store is located at 237 Lafayette Street, New York City. For more information, go to BLK DNM online.

What do you get when you mix old school with an outlook of what’s old is now new? Artisan De Luxe best known its unique craftmanship whereas each piece of denim is individually “imperfect” has opened its very first pop-up shop in Studio City’s iconic Sy Devore retail store. The store, which has been around for over 65 years, started in Hollywood and served as the go-to men’s store since the fifty’s. Owner, Danny Marsh, says “Sy Devore started as the original Ratpack store and has been pushing the envelope ever since with ground-breaking styles for men.” He is very excited for Artisan de Luxe to take position in the store and thinks Artisan de Luxe’s designer, Philippe Naouri, is “one of the most talented designers out there, and has a unique perspective on denim sportswear.” We think old blue eyes would be very intrigued to be wearing some blues, Sammy Davis Jr. too!

Levi’s latest concept store has us feeling as though we’re shopping through high-end vintage boutique as opposed to a typical clothing store. The concept cleverly dubbed “Made Here” not only sells the Levi’s brand but also hosts a number of other U.S. based brands that focus on hand-made goods produced in the same fashion that Mr. Strauss himself did, keeping in line the Levi’s tradition.

Praise the heavens, the Gods of Denim have finally arrived!… but they only carry five brands? Denimology reports that three international buddies got together and decided to start up an online denim store—Gods Of Denim. When we first heard the name, the mental picture was something like Greek statuesque ripped dudes in heroic poses holding flags with ever denim brand ever embroidered on them. (Okay, our imaginations are a tad vivid). But they’re not quite there yet. Their initial brand picks are Denham The Jeanmaker, Denim Demon, Jean Shop, Momotaro and Pace Jeans. And while that might keep things simple, we’ll have to wait and see whether this retailer lives up to their name-legacy.

The new kid in town (denim retail town, that is) has arrived with impressive aesthetic swagger at Limelight Marketplace in New York City. The very cool Cult of Individuality shop interior includes the former church/former club’s original stained glass window (who wouldn’t want to shop near that?) and a makeshift-looking wooden interior, with walls lined in selvedge, stretch denim and other offerings. The price range is $78—$185 and both the ladies & the gents will find something they adore.

The Gap has finally opened its doors to the new all-denim store, located in the center of Soho (513 Broadway, New York). The new shop houses over 2,500 pairs of jeans, including styles from the 1969 premium jeans collection. “Denim continues to be the heart of this brand and our goals will always be to create styles that are modern and sexy for our customer,” said Patrick Robinson, executive vice-president of design at Gap. This is the third Gap 1969 store to open in the U.S.
The store itself has a clean, bright feel with wood seating in the center of the store, installed with an iPad “bar” which is preloaded with favorite fashion sites. Prices range between $59.50 to $69.50, with premium price points for some of the more unusual and specially sourced pairs (Gap will be offering exclusive Italian and Japanese denim at this store). For a brand that was based on denim it was about time for them to delve into the ever growing luxury denim market.

We recently wrote about the new Levi’s Chambray x Opening Ceremony collaboration, and now you can nab yourself some at its new brick and mortar location, which quietly opened last month at Levi’s Plaza in San Francisco (1155 Battery St.). The Levi’s x Opening Ceremony chambray collection will be sold at this location, one of only four stores in the country to carry it. The official opening is said to be announced in March.
