Evisu “Year Of The Dragon” Raw Denim – Just Released

While some of us bring in the Chinese New Year with a straightforward “新年快乐!”, “恭喜發財!”, or “Happy New Year!” (for those whose Mandarin/Cantonese is a little rusty), others choose to commemorate the year ahead in a slightly different way.

Announced recently via their various online presences, Japanese denim heavyweight Evisu has just released two limited edition raw denim jeans that are themed with the animal of the upcoming year, the Dragon.

There are two models available – the Ryu Jeans and Gold Edition – and neither are easy to come, come at a low cost, or exactly modest in design (compared to more minimalist denim). However, given Evisu‘s long history and time in the industry (see our previous article – “Evisu Genes – Designer Hidehiko Yamane, 20th Anniversary) you can’t help but give them a peek.

If you are interested in picking up a pair, note that the pre-order sale began yesterday (January 22nd, 2012) and will close on February 11, 2012. Regardless, take a look and let us know what you think via the comments area at the bottom of the page!
