Denim heads rejoice–Clutch Magazine has just announced its first ever Denim-Only Magazine, sure to turn heads in fashion industries worldwide. With so much focus on the world of denim in recent years, this comes as no surprise from one of the leading menswear magazines. However, this issue promises to be even more refined and specific, diving into not only the product but also the designers, owners, and directors of a multitude of today’s leading Japanese denim brands. From Clutch:
With so much attention placed upon denim in recent years, there is no doubt that one day Japanese denim will become its own fashion category. It is no longer unusual to see Japanese denim brands exhibit their denim at overseas tradeshows, and the number of shops in Asia and Europe that are beginning to carry more Japanese denim brands are also increasing. With such a commitment to using the highest quality fabrics, stitching, and silhouettes, the beautiful aging and fading processes of Japanese denim have become extremely popular among denim fans throughout the world. Today, there are many Japanese denim brands who are moving outside of Japan and competing with brands overseas.
On April 4, Clutch will release a new magazine that puts the spotlight entirely on Japanese denim brands that have been widely recognized internationally, as well as the owners, directors, and designers of these brands that continue to release attractive denim models. Featuring dynamic photos that Clutch has become known for, the special edition magazine will introduce some of the industry’s leading figures and their philosophies and deep commitments towards the manufacturing of Japanese denim.
As always, the mag will feature in depth photo documentation that Clutch is known for, with a very promising sense of insight into an industry that denimheads outside of Japan obsess with. 164 pages of full color Japanese denim glory is right around the corner.
Available April 4, 2016 for ¥1,500 (about $13) at Clutch Magazine.
