Piero Turk – A Life With Denim

Italian denim designer Piero Turk launches his second denim book entitled: Details – A Life With Denim.

Piero Turk is one of the denim industries most unsung heroes. A man behind the scenes, Turk has worked with some of the most important brands including Edwin, Lee, Replay and AG (Adriano Goldschmied) providing his wealth of knowledge and passion as both a designer and manufacturing consultant. In 2012, Turk released his first self-published book Details, a visual exploration of his favourite and most inspirational denim details from his personal archive. Shortly after, he launched a digital manifestation of the book with his blog; Details – A Life with Denim.

This year, Turk takes the best from the blog and synthesises it into a cohesive book, under the same title, with over 300 lavish images of vintage workwear ‘details’ to inspire designers and denim heads alike. We were very lucky to have been sent a copy from the man himself and recommend all other collectors to add this must-have to their bookshelves. The book is for sale on Etsy for $38.

Head over to industry denim blog Denim and Jeans to read a full interview with Piero on his love for denim and why he published the book.
