The trade show season has come to an end, we’re back from our travels, and all stocked up. We’ve got a hella drop coming your way. Roll on SS19!
In true BENZAK style, there is nothing that brings us more pleasure than providing you time and time again with our very own quality classics. We thought it would only be right to kick off SS19 with nothing but a huge announcement. Later this month we’ll be dropping a whole load of 15.5 oz. Kojima selvedge denim goodness on our website and in partnering retailers.
If you’re familiar with our B-01 slim fit silhouettes, and you’re aware of the fading contest that 50 denim dudes took part in from November 2017 to October 2018, then you’d have guessed by now what we’ve got in store for you. Yup, that’s right. We’re launching a long-awaited batch of our BENZAK contest jeans. The exact B-01 style & fabric used in the BENZAK x CULTIZM x ROBIN DENIM contest will be up for grabs in the first half of our SS19 drop. If this doesn't get the indigo juices flowing, then we don't know what will. Oh, and if you really know your BENZAK jeans, we’ve remastered a few features that you may notice.
Last season we released our special #2 fabric. As you may know, this is an exclusive collaboration with the ‘greenest mill in the blue world’, Candiani. The special #2 fabric is already available in our iconic B-01 SLIM, B-02 REGULAR and our first denim jacket, the BDJ-01 COWBOY JACKET. This season we're completing the trio and rolling out our B-03 TAPERED fit in the special #2. Alongside the B-03 TAPERED, we’ll be proudly presenting a new addition to our collection of denim jackets. This one’s called the BDJ-02 RIDER JACKET. It's our take on a classic biker style denim jacket with a kick of BENZAK detailing and personality. In an upcoming blog post we’ll be diving into some of the key details of what makes the RIDER JACKET so effortlessly cool. Well, at least we think so. You won’t want to miss out, so stay tuned.
You may or may not know one of our core values is to live by our own rules and give no 'f's just as a cowboy would back in the day. Our founder Lennaert isn’t one to shy away from trying something new. Our SS19 drop 1, is lining up to be one of our most versatile yet. We’re always looking to incorporate variety, comfort and style within our collections. This season we're introducing a completely new 11 oz. industrial blue fabric. This’ll come in the form of our new BDJ-02 RIDER JACKET. There’s an interesting story behind the origins of this one, stay posted and you’ll be sure to know more soon.
What would SS19 be without a fresh drop of BENZAK tees. We’ve got two new styles coming your way. We’re bringing back our crackle print tee with our new sportswear logo in our custom-made heavy jersey fabric. A slubby knit with a vintage feel in three staple colourways; navy, off white and black. The second tee in our collection is one we’ve been pretty excited to present you with. The BT-04 GRAPHIC TEE is looking to be a BENZAK icon. It’s simple yet effective box logo comes in the BENZAK core brand colours: navy, green, and burgundy.
That’s all for drop 1. All of the above will be available later this month right here on the official BENZAK DENIM DEVELOPERS website and selected partnering retails globally.
