Jean Machine x Missoni
By Samuel Trotman

London’s Jean Machine collaborates with Missoni on an exclusive denim collection.

Apr 24, 2013


London men’s denim label, Jean Machine partners with Missoni, the iconic fashion house for their Fall/Winter 13 ready-to-wear collection.

Over the past few seasons, an increasing number of runway designers have been collaborating with established denim brands on ready-to-wear collections. Some of the most notable partnerships that have hit international Fashion Weeks include Mary Katrantzou for Current ElliottNotfiy Denim x Manish AroraLevi’s x Junya Watanabe and the ongoing collaboration between J Brand x Christopher Kane. It is easy to see the appeal and commerciality for both parties on these partnerships that combine denim expertise with innovative designs to create a truly unique and directional product.

The latest collaboration to hit the Fall/Winter 13 runway emerges from two family-run business and specialists within their product categories: London’s infamous Jean Machine by Chloe Lonsdale of MiH Jeans and Missoni, the iconic Italian fashion house.

Launched at Milan Fashion Week, the exclusive collaboration features a selection of Jean Machine’s signature raw denims highlighted with Missoni’s exclusive knit techniques. Key items featured in the collection include a Jean Machine’s JM2 straight leg jean in a clean blue rinse wash with Missoni knitted pockets in the season’s blue-camel color palette. Also offered is the classic Jm4 jacket, reworked to include a button-out detachable Missoni zigzag felted wool waistcoat in a coordinating blue-camel knit.

Dates have not been released yet but items will be available on Jean Machine’s webstore as well as Missoni outlets.

    I love this western denimstyle. I found a great shirt for my husband that has amazing denim with a traditional Native inspired fabric detail.
