From L.A. with Love
Denim-lovers of the world, unite! The newly revived L.A. vertical denim brand AGOLDE merged creative minds with Opening Ceremony in order to create some fresh, new workwear-inspired denim. According to the two brands, it’s the perfect time to embrace your inner carpenter. The six-piece capsule collection consists of three different pairs of jeans, two jackets, and a mini skirt, all classically AGOLDE with a graphic Opening Ceremony touch.
With handcrafted patches and added logos, the collaboration ticks off all the trend boxes and encapsulates that easy-going downtown aesthetic which is craving a pink wall, a palm tree and some warm sunshine (or at least the Slumber filter on Instagram). Crafted entirely in Los Angeles at AGOLDE’s factory and wash facilities and designed in collaboration with New York-based design team run by the creative directors of both OC and Kenzo, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, the made-in-USA label is stating the truth.
Our favourite? We didn’t even know, but it’s time for the comeback of a tight denim mini. The panels studded over cream denim make that 1990s classic become a contemporary staple, and with just a ribbed white vest and some pointed flats, you’ll be starring in your own 2017 revival of Dawson’s Creek. Pacey or Dawson? It’s up to you.
The AGOLDE x Opening Ceremony capsule collection is available to buy from www.openingceremony.com, with prices starting from £169.
