Raleigh Denim‘s spring 2013 presentation showcased a light and breezy side to the ethical brand’s otherwise modern industrial aesthetic. Graphic elements included specially designed floral prints, grids and geometric shapes. There was a gorgeous white dip-dyed silk dress and smart button-ups for both sexes. Dark wash raw denim was cuffed up to reveal selvedge, and a pair of sexy short-shorts on a blonde female model brought immediate nostalgia for next summer.
Below, one half of the husband and wife design team, Sarah Lytvinenko, shares the story behind the collection (and their new New York store, which just opened at 211 Elizabeth St in SoHo).
