Patchwork denim surfaces create standout looks in tonal shades of indigo. Pieced-together materials and raw edgings create a casual customized look. Clean lines and simple cuts form the perfect canvas for the eye-catching surface statements.

Premium denim imitates non-denim styles, blurring the boundaries between denim and other woven qualities. Surfaces are over-dyed to emulate deep indigo raw denim. Sharp high fashion silhouettes further contemporize the look.
