Iron Heart x DC4 Party Summer 2013 – Berlin Bread&Butter:
Probably the post with the most images but how do you decide which ones to take and which not, anyway. First of all thanks to Anie Fields who informed and took us to this great party after a visit at her shop. Impressed by all the bikes in front of the DC4 Japanese Denim Store, then the unique characters. And when you enter the shop there are a lot of top of the class japanese denim brands, that´s what the name says and that´s what you get! Inside the store I ran into Olaf who offered me a private tour who told me a lot about the brands, Japanese Denim, the steel shrink to fit bathtub in the cellar, that cold beer is gone and the chain stitch hemming service they offer on their unions special machines. After that experience, I have to say, another store you shouldn´t miss when you are into Denim and Quality goods. And for sure the place to go if you searching advice or want to buy a Japanese pair of Jeans.
Saint James + Twothirds naval shirt:
Walked by this great shirt at the Bread&Butter Summer 2013. Did you know that striped shirts were so popular by sailors be-cause they tend to be easier to be spotted when the went overboard + that classic marine striped shirts got 13 stripes. The shirt can be ordered for 100 Euro here. Enjoy to watch the Movie “UNE HISTOIRE D’EAU — MADE IN FRANCE” or the History of the sea/water.
pure blue japan & Syoaiya:
Im far from being a denim expert, but the denim i saw at the stand of pure blue japan & Syoaiya was the most extraordinary in color, texture and look for me. Not much to say about it, i hope the macro shoots speak for himself. The uneven weaving caused by old looms and the rich indigo color will result in a great development which you see on the worn samples at the end of this post.
Thanks to the Bread&Butter to bring companies like this to Berlin.
