Paris-based men’s label, 13 Bonaparte, is making a foray into womenswear through denim.

The contemporary brand launched Le Denim, a capsule collection offering men’s and unisex styles as well as nine women’s-specific designs for the first time.

Women’s styles include a versatile denim kimono dress with a shawl collar, a high waisted mini skirt with front buttons, a sleeveless crop top, an apron skirt and wide-leg pants with patch pockets. Many of the women’s pieces are already sold out.

In an interview, 13 Bonaparte Founder David Sarfati told Vogue, “Our foundational inspirations for the new denim designs came from American land artists and minimalists of the 1960s and 1970s, like Robert Smithson, Nancy Holt, and Robert Morris.”

A unisex raw denim poncho, an indigo denim sweatshirt and a series of jean jackets are other highlights in the capsule collection.

The brand collaborated with soloists of the New York City Ballet, Megan LeCrone and Harrison Ball, and photographer Edward Lane to photograph the collection.
