Endless Luxury is the moniker Jacob Cohën has given its new line of compostable and biodegradable denim.
The men’s denim jacket and two jean styles are made with Candiani Denim fabrics with Coreva technology, the Italian mill’s patent alternative to synthetic yarns.
By using an elastomer made from natural rubber, Coreva eliminates plastic-based synthetic elastomers (which are commonly obtained from fossil fuels) from denim fabric without compromising the elasticity, quality and durability of a pair of jeans. The stretch fabrics are 96 percent organic cotton and 4 percent natural rubber.
The circular designs feature detachable buttons, biodegradable back patches and biodegradable thread. Jacob Cohën shares the steps consumers must take to compost the jeans on its website and social media.
The collection includes a dark blue Trucker jacket, the Bard slim fit jean and the Nick slim fit jean. Two 100 percent organic cotton T-shirts with an Endless Luxury emblem round out the collection, which retails for $350-$765.
The Italian brand also introduced the Diamond Edition capsule, a line of jeans and jackets embellished with leather patches and embossed buttons made with natural micro diamonds.
“The hand application of diamond powder and the precise arrangement of the stones allows for a product with a certified diamond carat,” the brand states on its website.
The capsule consists of the Nick and Bard slim fit jeans in indigo and off-white. Each garment is entirely made in Italy and is provided with a numbered limited edition leather case for each patch. The diamonds are “conflict free and come from legitimate sources,” Jacob Cohën states.
The Diamond Edition jeans retail for $1,865-$1,940.
