Spanish Designer Coral Garrett is a fashionisto (check him out on Lookbook!) and a denim enthusiast. In his current collection in development, “The Big North Chapter,” Garrett has amassed a collection of vintage denim jackets in which he hand finishes, dyes, pattern change and applies leather pieces on strategic positions. Talk about denim DIY! In this video, Garrett shows how he exposed a denim jacket to the elements (it took three months to complete), which involved tying up his jeans jacket high up in a forest. We see his reserved excitement as he unhoists his weathered denim jacket and packs it quickly yet carefully, like a hunter who has secured his prey and is eager to take it home for a fine feast.
When Denim Therapy was first introduced to him, he was a mens accessories designer (man bags, clutches and folios). We are happy he’s expanded his repertoire into the realm of denim. What are you willing to do to yield custom faded denim? For more information, go to Coral Garrett online.
