A Denim Statement


From jackets to jeans, the denim experts have analyzed how these developments will emerge in collections for the upcoming season, influencing key denim elements like color, wash and detail, as seen here.

Texture Overload

Denim appeals to the touch with highly tactile designs, as heavily textured surfaces add interest to shapes while reinforcing them for winter weather. Highlight designs include scaled denim and raw self-textured ruffles, as well as materials with unusual puckered qualities. Garments can be worn separately or matching for an enhanced statement.
