Dutch Premium Denim Brand- DENHAM has recently unveiled its AW18 Collection which is inspired by Jason Denham’s own heritage in the Northern English countryside, from the steel foundries of Sheffield to the rolling Yorkshire Moors. Designs fuse classic workwear references with indigo fabrics and technical details. They channel the spirit of British country pursuits — think hunting and hiking at historic manor estates — while reflecting DENHAM’s signature utilitarian aesthetic.
The collection features several types of prints which are inspired by the work of William Morris, an iconic textile designer and key influencer in the English “Arts and Crafts Movement” of the late 19th century. Graphics combine ornamental floral motifs with playful brushstrokes and Japanese influences, for a true reflection of DENHAM’s “East meets West” mantra. The autumnal color palette is filled with rich tones like merlot, gold, burnt caramel and deep seaweed.
Crop Loose Carrot Fit Jeans – GRS
Golden Rivet Seoul (GRS): Cut from 12oz, comfort stretch denim with a vintage wash, subtle tint, blanket stitch patches and heavy repairs. The style features golden rivets; they’re a seal of premium quality and are used only on denim made by Candiani, the renowned Italian mill. Candiani is known worldwide for its innovative, sustainable approach to denim manufacturing. The Crop has a dropped crotch with a looser fit at the seat, a carrot fit through the thigh, and a straight fit through the knee. It has a cropped hem that’s designed to be worn rolled-up, above your ankle.
Ransack Indigo Shirt – TIS
Textured Indigo Shirting (TIS): Classic indigo that’s been specially rinsed for extra softness. The Ransack Indigo Shirt was inspired by a selection of indigo work shirts found in the DENHAM Garment Library, a collection of 1,500 pieces used to inspire design team of DENHAM. It’s designed to be worn as an overshirt, with a jacket-style collar, larger buttons and side pockets. Cut a little bigger for a slight dropped shoulder look, this shirt utilises the reverse side of the fabric in panels on the body and arms. The style puts a modern spin on the traditional aesthetic.
Bolt Skinny Fit Jeans – LHL
Left Hand Lisbon (LHL): Cut from 10oz, left hand indigo denim, with a subtle wash and matching threads. The comfort stretch fabric has just a little bit of stretch added, for improved wearability and movement. The Bolt is the brand’s modern take on a classic: a five-pocket jean designed with a tight fit. This sleek and sharp silhouette fits close to the body through the thigh, knee and ankle.
Pursuit Top – CTD
Cotton Tencel Denim (CTD): A supple, lightweight fabric that moves with your body and gives off a subtle sheen. The Pursuit Top is crafted from a cotton tencel denim for supreme softness and wearability. It’s been dyed in a rich shade of indigo and finished with an authentic look. The design team included tonal elements like grosgrain detailing and an exposed zipper to add unique texture. The flattering drape of the tencel fabric, together with the rounded neckline and dramatic trumpet sleeves, create a playful and feminine piece that’s a step up from a simple tee on a night out.
Downtown Jacket – VAD
Velour Aged Denim (VAD): Cut from premium Italian indigo denim, this fabric has tactile velour bonding on top, which has been subtly washed and brushed for a lived-in finish. An update on the classic Western denim jacket that has been reimagined with a looser, oversized fit.
Adventure Dress – SIT
Soft Indigo Tencel (SIT): A supple, lightweight fabric that moves with your body and gives off a subtle sheen. This dress has been crafted from a super feminine, indigo tencel fabric with their seasonal petal ditsy print. The print takes inspiration from Japanese calligraphy art, and the British rose. The rose’s petal is created with an organic, minimal brush stroke, and the petals are repeated in an abstract design for relaxed wearability.
The tencel ensures beautiful drape on the body, while the addition of a fabric belt allows extra definition at the waist . The silhouette was inspired by a vintage piece found in the DENHAM Garment Library.
