This week, one of the most well respected denim manufacturers in North America, Raleigh Denim, presented their latest collection.
We added another exciting chapter to our global denim journey this week when we stopped off at the NYC presentation of North Carolina-based brand, Raleigh Denim.
Hosted by husband-and-wife design duo Sarah and Victor Lytvinenko, the Raleigh Denim Fall/Winter 2012 presentation showcased the latest collection of the brand’s American craftsmanship. The artisan denim brand has grown into a complete line of Men’s and Women’s jeans and separates; this season they presented 14 mixed looks that were simply styled with meticulous detail.
Men’s looks took on a smartened hardware store clerk appeal, with rugged ticking stripe workshirts, carpenter pants and utility vests. The Women’s line boasted a borrowed-from-the-boys sensibility with cropped takes on Raleigh’s signature non-automated selvedge pants and pleated shirts styled with denim bow-ties and fitted leather belts. Sarah also sneaked in a few coated denims for the women, bringing a more refined appeal to the collection. Alongside their trademark indigo, the outfits teamed up with classic leather jackets, natural indigo-dyed dresses and cotton shirts in check and polka-dot to complete the collection.
