About It's simple. The Truth is in the Details. Worship Tradition, Destroy Convention.
Press Founded way way back in 2009, DENHAM will be a toddler for some time to come. As such we are deeply grateful to the media and event organizers below who have been helping us get the word out.
Garment Library Before we created we collected. But we collect not just to ACQUIRE. We collect to EXAMINE, ANALYSE, DISCOVER and to LEARN. The Denham Garment Library is the physical manifestation of our obsession with tradition and quality, providing deep and unique sources of inspiration for our design process.
Product Reviews Denham design, denim integrity. We look to the tradition from which denim emerged as a blueprint for developing the collection. Focused on quality and utility. We seek to add to the great tradition of iconic garment-types by challenging conventions the way they did when they first built pants out of tent-fabric, or slammed machine-rivets into clothing.
Service Co. When pure denim fabric soaks in timeless indigo dyestuff, the result takes on a life of its own. Part of the pleasure of blue jeans is the journey they take with you all the way from a fresh virgin pair to a perfectly worn-in and 100% unique wardrobe favorite. To get from here to there takes care and maintenance. That process should also be a pleasure.

This past Friday bore witness a reception celebrating the first official Denham House Guest Artist Project.
The concept of the H.G.A series is very simple. We reach out to exceptional creatives whose work we admire and who have a handwriting all their own. We invite these artists to express elements of our brand signature within a special artwork but we insist it be done without any compromise to their own unique vision… -in other words, we ask them to step into our world but let ‘em do pretty much their own thing. Then we integrate the artwork within special styles in our seasonal collection.
The first artist we asked was a local hero, Alljan Moehamad. Alljan has inspired a cult following for mind bending pen-and-ink illustrations that seem to flow completely organically from the end of his pen. He will sit at his worktable; clear his mind and ignite an initial imaginative spark. From that first ignition the work seems to unfold nearly of its own volition, or at least he’s taught himself to remove any artificial filter between his mind and his hand. Representational forms sill forth but before the viewer can predict their direction they morph and spin and bloom into other images and objectives. The result can be compared to psychedelic artwork from the Fillmore Theater days in San Francisco and New York, but they manifest a clean contemporary freshness that can only be from Alljan’s own time and his own place. Alljan and his vision are nothing if not absolutely original.
The styles featuring Alljan’s artork for Denham were unveiled in our own shops last week. Alljan has also honored us by exhibiting the full set of original Alljan Skulls of which his Denham scissor-skull is a key part. The exhibition was installed in our Amsterdam store and served as the heart of Friday’s reception.
Limited edition signed prints of the Alljan’s artwork were also produced and given as a special gift to guests who bought one of the new House Guest Artist tees or scarves during the event. And of course Alljan was on-hand to celebrate with us and meet his fans throughout the evening.
