“It’s a denim reboot!” Thomas Dislich, Director for Europe and Asia, succinctly sums up Spring/Summer 2015! “The blue gold is back on top as the protagonist in all collections. Denim is once again a fashion dynamo, and will significantly impact the shape of the market.” “Real denim” with cross-effects and irregular thread structures will play an important role. Discreet lines will more likely be in the background, while vintage is unmistakably at the fore!
