Every once in a blue moon, we see a company take a big step (in this case more of a leap) and try something out of the ordinary. Studio D’artisan is no newby to oddball releases, but they have kicked it up a notch with their new D1687 Patchwork Jeans.
They are cut and sewn by hand using four different denims–a natural indigo, 14oz., 15oz., and 18.5oz. at 8 cm squares to create even more texture and detail. They have even somehow managed to keep the selvedge details intact in the cuff, an added bonus along with the classic cinch back which is also patchworked.
There is an obvious focus on the art of production translated into each pair, and as such warrant a pretty hefty pricetag. But for a jean four times the price of your average Japanese selvedge denim jeans, at least you’re getting four times as many fabrics.
Available for pre-order for 97,200JPY (~$861 USD) at Studio D’artisan.
