We’re excited to see that German denim brand Pike Brothers, creators of purist, archival utility garments since 2010, launched its first women’s line for S/S 14.

Pike Brothers, known for its authentic men’s workwear styles, has now expanded to womenswear and we saw the collection firsthand earlier this month at Bread & Butter, Berlin. As expected, the new line features the similar vintage styling that the brand has built a reputation with in Europe: High-waisted, side fastening jeans, rigid indigo and neat, chambray shirts.

The brand describes the line as paying homage to all “the forgotten heroines of the early 20th century – women for whom independence, self-assurance and freedom were important.” The brand cites Amelia Earhart as a heroine and “all the countless female industrial workers who through building planes and ships among other things formed the backbone of the technological progress of the 1930s and especially the 1940s.”


The collection is small, with only three pairs of pants, two shirts and one skirt, but each item is carefully crafted and detailed. Pike Brothers says, “The best fabrics, finest accessories and detailed finishing are the basis of all Ann Sheppard’s collections.”

Styles are fitted, but there is no sign of the modern skinny jean. This unique and focused collection will appeal to denim and history experts and vintage lovers alike. We wish them every success!
