Denims Originals is a footwear brand, founded in 2012, that focuses on people that are passionate about denim. They make their shoes completely out of denim! I have included 3 of their look book shots (which they went to Verona in Italy to shoot with a vesper) and I have also included some info from the brands press release. Take a look below and you can shop their shoes online.
Denims Originals is a brand with a new name, a new progressive philosophy, that will make a mark on the streets. The name is chosen to illustrate the love for denim, and our original vision. We will always stay close to the core of the brand: denim.
Denims Originals represents the very best in premium denim style. Every shoe we make remains true to our original vision and love for denim. Tradition, quality, passion, craftsmanship and attention to detail all come together and make a piece of footwear into a Denims.
Denims are produced in Portugal by skilled craftsmen, trained in the craft of tradition. Portugal has built a remarkable history upon its footwear craftsmanship. The craftsmen at our factory have produced footwear for decades. Their experience and knowledge enable them to create shoes with a solid construction that mold perfectly to the foot. The denim fabrics we use, are from Italy. We care for quality, attention to detail and good materials.
The ‘Original’ is the perfect summer shoe. A stylish denim shoe with a great personality. Crafted from a wide range of quality materials, finished with a rugged vulcanized sole. Together with the distinctive denim, make this shoe one to remember. The unique aspect of this shoe was achieved by a special treatment. Experience has shown that this treatment does not guarantee regular color effect, making each shoe unique. It is therefore normal that the shoes themselves are not 100% identical.
Cult of Individuality decided to tell theit story in a different way with their new ETHOS approach. Instead of casting the usual model, the brand chose individuals from the streets of Los Angeles. Ones that stand out and live by their own mantras just like Cult of Individuality themselves.
To coincide with the new change, Cult of Individuality has launched a movement that anyone can participate in. With the help of social media, you guys can share images of your own personal style on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest by using the hashtag “#1CULT” to be part of the “CULT.” With your entry you are also given the chance to be in Cult of Individuality’s monthly giveaway. So how many of you are excited to join the Cult?
Here is a look at the first part of the new Cult of Individuality Spring/Summer 2013 campaign. The theme for this, as you can see, is classic laid-back surfers. Ones that believe in having a fun time without excess and feeling as free as possible.
The styles this season are really great. I find the washes to have a nice worn look without looking overdone. The hints of washed out colors are great as we don’t see those kinds of washes for men. What are your thoughts on this collection?
Jennifer did a post on Peoples Pride back in 2009, introducing you to the brand (which you can see here), but in this post you can see some of their new styles and an up close look at the detailing on their denim, as well as the fabric and general feel of the brand.
Peoples Pride is a premium denim lifestyle brand, conceived on the basic principles of artistic expression to encourage and support creative freedom, intellectual thought, and spiritual enlightenment.
From its conception, Peoples Pride has infringed upon the confines of the norm, pushing the boundaries of creativity with its innovative and cutting edge styles. The development of pioneering and authentic concepts like our patented condom pocket, unique hardware, and inspirational literature gives the Brand its strong identity.
You can see a lot of images in the gallery below of the selvedge, the hardware, the fabric, the stitching and even some modelled shots as well. Have any of you tried Peoples Pride?
