We are extremely proud to present the 10th issue of Journal de Nîmes, which was released at Tenue de Nîmes last Friday in the midst of the Amsterdam Denim Days. In honor of the denim event, this particular issue was drenched in indigo and might just be our most ambitious magazine till date. The Amsterdam Denim Days, which took place from Wednesday until Saturday, brought the national and international denim community to the city with the highest concentration of denim brands. The event was a collaborative effort of The House of Denim initiative, Modefabriek (Blueprint) and HTNK Fashion recruitment & consultancy and among other events featured the American Kingpins Show, which previously took place in New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong. Journal de Nîmes Nº 10 features several in-depth stories on individuals and initiatives from the world of denim and some photographic editorials, among which is a shoot giving the spectator a peek into the ever-growing denim archive of Tenue de Nîmes.
One of the stories which inspired us thoroughly is the feature on the impeccable Peter and Petra Hebbing and their amazing home which was photographed by Thomas Tukker. Peter builds brands with his agency N=5 as an Art and Creative Director, and he and his wive built up an amazing collection through the years which one finds throughout their home. And although their collection has been the product of travels all over the world; their favorite item still remains the wedding picture shot one day after they got married. We also love the photographic editorial shot by Dirk Kikstra and styled by Renske van der Ploeg. All clothing worn by the denim clad rat pack are rare vintage pieces from the archives of Tenue de Nîmes, among which are some beautiful specimens like vintage overalls and an unique Levi’s trucker jacket with “Lone Wolf – No Club” colors.
Other stories in the issue we are very proud of are: the beautiful set of indigo treasures by Armor Lux, a short introduction of sneaker brand CEBO and the highly exciting upcoming collaboration between Pastoe and Tenue de Nîmes, the overview of the history of Lee, the photographic report of our amazing trip to Japan last year, and it finally features our second installment of Another Collection Illustrated, with some insane illustrations from the hands of the highly talented London-based illustrator Tavan Maneetapho inspired by our vintage Boro cloths. We will present these beautiful illustrations online later this week!
