DENIM. We love the staple denim. No matter what your mood is, whether you’re feeling like a lazy day in, a casual Friday in the office or are ready for a night out in the town, a good denim garment is your best friend.
According to our “fashion history” denim was first used in USA in the late 18th century, traditionally coloured blue with indigo dye to make blue jeans and made of a lighter cotton fabric. For the last two centuries the ‘classic’ blue denim jeans has been reinvented in many different fabrics, colours, and forms, from trousers, jackets, to dresses and jumpsuits.
In the past few seasons including the latest Spring Summer 2015 (SS15) the denim look has been a strong feature on all of our favourite International and Australian designer collections.
