BLUE DENIM GOT CREATIVE
Andy Warhol once said: ‘I want to die with my blue jeans on.’ If only he could see Gucci and Versace’s embellished denim from his Factory in the sky.
DOUBLE DENIM IS (GOLD) STANDARD
Raf Simons revived it at Calvin Klein 205w39nyc in its purest American form. How far we’ve come since Bing Crosby was barred from a hotel for wearing it head-to-toe.
