Last week we went to check out the latest Kingpins trade show in its new cement floor penthouse venue, the Cooper Design Space in Downtown Los Angeles. Spanish-based manufacturer of finishing machines, Jeanologia presented its latest machinery that not only produces fantastic laundry effects but does so with pioneering, ethically sound technology.

There were live demonstrations on jeans using the GFK LASER technology
on the creations of designers such as Stussy, The Gap, Goldsign, Earnest Sewn, Joe’s Jeans and Marithé + François Girbaud.

As Enrique Silla, President of Jeanologia, says: The collaboration with KingPins and with this distinguished creative group allow us to put art and technology to the service of Denim, on the expectation of inspiring designers, brands and retailers all over the world.”

The trade show itself, attended by 36 curated exhibitors, gave insight into S/S 13 fabric and wash trends. We’ll be putting together a comprehensive report once we’re back from Berlin’s Bread and Butter trade fair. In the meantime, our key trends included pastels and washed-out brights, laser-treated prints, wet-look resins, cotton-linen mixes and super-soft stretch sateens.
