Evisu Relaunch | A First Look

Evisu Relaunch | A First Look

The denim market has gone through a lot of changes in the last two decades. We still remember the time when there was basically only Levi’s out there and then the shift to premium denim in the 90’s. One of the major players, if not the most significant one, was Evisu in the beginning of the 90’s. This year the brand relaunches, finding back to its old values.

Now Evisu is lead by Scott Morrison as creative director, known for founding Paper Denim and Earnest Sewn. The collection pays homage to the fascinating and forgotten roots of the brand. Lire le reste de cette entrée »

Evisu Tribute to Lee’s – No. 13 Lazy S Slim Denim

 

Following a tedious research initiative, Evisu looks to pay homage to Lee Jeans. Much like its well-established competitor Levi’s, Lee also maintains a strong historical background as the denim brand began operations almost 120 years ago in 1889. With Evisu’s homage, they have created the No. 13 LEFT, a left hand twill offering which due to the weaving technique yields a softer overall feel (weaves move from top left to bottom right) relative to the more common right hand twill. Further details and highlights include green caste indigo and mismatched selvedge much like previous Lee denim. The mismatched selvedge line can be attributed to Lee’s previous use of wider denim relative to Levi’s. Well-known for their hand-painted back pocket motifs, Evisu continues the tribute with bull horns like “Lazy S” as well as a an interior label similar to Lee’s labels of the 1930s. Available starting January 2009. Lire le reste de cette entrée »

While much of the world is speeding things up, hoping on track bikes and championing the « oneness » achieved through fixed gear, Evisu slows it down. With Dutch Bicycle manufacturer Grand 1888, they’ve developed a special edition bespoke cruiser. Everything on the bike is handcrafted from the steel frame to the gold plackets on the mud guard. The bikes are all individually numbered and come with a limited selvedge constructed Evisu bike duffel.
