Yohji Yamamoto x Edwin Denim = Yohji Jeans


Yohji Yamamoto and Edwin Denim, two darlings of the fashion and denim worlds hailing from Japan, have collaborated to bring you Yohji Jeans.  Unlike what you may have seen online called Yohji Yamamoto Jeans, this partnership between these coveted Japanese labels offers something more Edwin-centric, if you will. Besides the standard raw indigo jeans, a you’ll also find natural colored jeans, expressing a Yamamoto philosophy of a rebirth in its debut “Naked” collection.  We think Yamamoto, a progressive visionary fashion designer, will reign in the stragglers who have resisted the lure of premium denim as a style staple.

Yohji Yamamoto collaborates with Edwin Denim to bring you Yohji Jeans for Fall 2012.




The collection is expected to hit shelves in June 2012. Images via Selectism.

Inside Denim Manufacturer Edwin Japan’s Well-Oiled Methods


What happens when denim manufacturers go above and beyond systematic manufacturing and begin engineering and customizing their machinery over time as a result of studying improved methods of creating their product? Aside from adding a bit of “artist” into their “engineer” titles, they begin to produce some of the most coveted denim on the market. Such is the case with Edwin Japan, a 35-year-old brand and manufacturer that are increasingly sought out by other brands as the step one source for their own jean products.

Denim Dose: News & Links


Welcome to your morning dose of denim news, links, sales, and other irresistible glimpses of inside info. Catch up on what’s happening (and what’s definitely not happening) and browse our personal picks after scanning the web this morning. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!

1. Go behind the seams…er, scenes, with Edwin Japan‘s new short film, in which the denim company pays homage to the beauty of jean production, from washing to construction, against beautiful scenes from Japan.

2. Photographer Karlheinz Weinberger spent his early years photographing American-obsessed Swiss youth in the 1950s and now the Swiss Institute in New York is publishing Jeans. The posthumous tome is aptly named, featuring blue jean-wearing teenage boys in the streets, factories, and industrial warehouses–a sign of their rebellion in a conservative, post-war world. Check out images from the book and an interview with one of the editors, Gianni Jetzer, here.

3. Face of DKNY Jeans, actress Ashley Greene, wears awesome graphic, printed jeans in new images from her spring 2012 campaign. We’re loving the mad mix of patterns.

4. Cimarron Jeans has been around for over thirty years, but they’ve recently focused on providing tons of color options–seventy, to be exact–under the helm of Benjamen and Michael Djeribi. The brand has released this cool image, a gradient of all your hue options in one space. Take your pick!

5. The new year may have started, but we haven’t forgotten 2011 (yet). According to Advertising Age, Rihanna’s Armani Jeans ad campaign was voted the sexiest of the year. You can’t deny there’s something seriously smoking about skinny jeans, a leather jacket, and RiRi. It’s not rocket science.
