ABOUT THE COLLECTION

From Amsterdam to Tokyo

This season the spark that ignited the design process originated with a walk through Amsterdam’s 9-Streets. The neighborhood that gave birth to Denham continues to serve as a simple map for its passions and values. Just a few blocks down from the design studio is respected local antique store Van Hier tot Tokio (From Here to Tokyo) specializing Japanese furniture, textiles and object d’art. With a strong presence in Japan and loads of inspiration bouncing back and forth between Japan and the Amsterdam studio, the brand itself extends “From Here to Tokyo”.

On a loop around the neighborhood Jason Denham made a routine visit to the shop and uncovered a stack of antique “katagami” stencils of the type used to print silk kimono. Each one had been hand- cut and punched with complex motifs and each one showed signs of careful use over the years. Jason procured a few examples and brought them into the studio for inspiration. The design team could only imagine the textiles these stencils would have helped create during their time in service in Japan. The team quickly resolved to give the designs a second life and a contemporary relevance within the new collection. A perfect way to return to Denham’s ethos of quality, storytelling and a deep respect for Japan’s contribution to denim and to fashion history in general.Our yoke panels are finished with our signature print – a collection of scissor artwork we’ve designed over the years. So, every time you look inside your jeans, you’ll see a little bit of history.

The Logo

The brand’s iconic logo

For Jason Denham, scissors are a symbol of his craft. Throughout his career he’s collected thousands of pairs – each with a unique story and past. But there’s one scissor that’s the most important: his first pair, which inspired the brand’s iconic logo.

Premium Hardware

Copper meets black satin powder coating

In every design we make, we aim to combine our vintage inspirations with original DENHAM details. A distinct example is our premium copper hardware. Used in workwear since 1873, copper hardware has been around for almost as long as jeans have. We add a black satin powder coating, which gives a luxurious and modern twist to a nostalgic classic.

THE TRUTH IS IN THE DETAILS

By Jason Denham

I’ve dedicated my life to making the perfect jeans. They’re my passion and my pride. Like a chef, I hand pick all my ingredients: I study tradition and technique, and obsess over every detail. I honour heritage and authenticity, while bringing a modern twist to my craft. I believe ‘The Truth is in the Details’ and every pair of DENHAM jeans tells a story – one that evolves every time they’re worn. I’m excited to share in this journey and story with you.
