MiH Jeans recently launched an exclusive shibori tye dye collaboration with LA based shibori specialist Niki Livingston on their website. Shibori dye, one of the most beautiful fabric treatments we’ve ever laid eyes on (and a favorite of the festival-going crowd) is an ancient Japanese dye technique used to give cloth a three dimensional form by folding, stitching, and twisting the material before it is sumberged. The result, as you can see, is gorgeous.
“The MiH design team and Niki worked closely together to develop shibori-dyed pieces that reflect MiH’s British heritage and Niki’s laid-back, Californian attitude. After experimenting firstly with denim, we then chose tees, shirts and scarves to become the canvases for our indigo art. Scarf prints were influenced by water and shadows whilst tees and shirts were tied to create spots and stripes with ease and spontaneity.”

Nudie Jeans just dropped their latest limited edition, a variation of then Slim Jim style dubbed “Post Recycle Dry” ($215). This US exclusive for Barneys NYC and BARNEYS.com is produced in fabric recycled from old worn Nudie Jeans denim. Together with ISKO, an international leader in denim manufacture, a processing technology has been developed where old denim is cut, milled down to a pulp, and then blended with virgin organic cotton to generate a new fabric. The result is a distinctive, slubby denim with a soft feel – the slubs being a consequence of the natural irregularities of the recycled yarn.
The straight-fit jean features five pocket details, zip fly, tonal stitching throughout, and organic trims. With only 500 jeans produced worldwide in this fabric, each style is uniquely customized with a numbered Limited Edition pocket lining. Slim Jim ‘Post Recycle Dry’ is available exclusively at BARNEYS this week.

We LOVE denim and we LOVE art, so when we heard about the collaboration of Levi’s and MOCA, we were instantly smitten. This Saturday, Levi’s classic denim trucker jacket is getting released with a twist—patriotic artwork done personally by famed graffiti artist Shepard Fairey. When asked his thoughts on why the collab focuses on the trucker jacket, Fairey points out how it “is a significant piece in that it’s one of the few fashion icons that has managed to mean something important to almost every demographic and ideology of youth culture movement since it was first introduced.”
Be sure to not miss out on this perfect opportunity to show the world your love for both the great ol’ USA and the world of street art. Be part of the lucky few and grab one of the50 limited edition jackets that will be available via mocastore.org on July 2.
