Inspiration, styling and wash directions
The inspiration , styling and wash directions are summed up by them as:
“American 1940s vintage meets Japanese fashion hobo to create what we call a fresh modern vintage, working on denim bases of sea green, ocean blue and pale blues and using touches of rust colors, tints and pure indigo sprays -and not the typical vintage yellow tints -we created a vintage look with a much fresher feel . We wanted to create a new take on vintage denim and washes but still be able to see the original raw denim in areas of the jeans!”
“With the Dubai Desert Studio laundry we took this idea to another level with the Eco vintage range. Which is drawing on the same inspiration but creating modern vintage denims with using only modern day technologies, laser, ozone, waterless, low Energy and Nano bubbles. Sustainable denim productions replacing conventional methods with eco technologies.”
We give below some of the Eco vintage washes achieved at the Desert Studio , Dubai – using eco friendly technologies.
