Gilded Age Releases a Denim Line Inspired by New York’s Docks

Fashion is at a crossroads: continue with cutting-edge strategies developed to persevere during Covid or slide back into familiar (yet unprofitable) habits? Get the experts' perspective at our in-person Sourcing Summit, Oct. 19 at New York’s Cipriani 42nd Street.

NYC-based premium denim brand Gilded Age released a collection inspired by the New York docks and core imports of the past.

“Sugar, coffee, tobacco, rum: these are things no one can get rid of,” said Stefan Miljanic, Gilded Age designer and creative director.

The collection has a carefully designed patina and hardness, featuring fabrics that appear crinkled and tinted. Miljanic focused on denim that looks authentically worn: one style features a faded square on the back pocket that gives the effect of someone carrying a phone or wallet in his back pocket for a period of time.

The line features medium and light selvedge and non-selvedge stretch with high-quality Italian, Japanese and American fabrics, including denim from Candiani and Cone Mills.

A highlight of the collection is a natural indigo selvedge denim done in a rare 13 oz. slubby Japanese denim. Each pair of jeans made in this unique fabric is stamped inside with a name and number.
