Denim Meets Couture at Première Vision New York

Thank you for joining Sourcing Journal & industry leaders at our SOURCING SUMMIT NY, as we discussed the most pressing issues of the day. View the Summit on-demand Oct. 22- Jan. 2, and stay tuned for the upcoming Companion Report.

What does denim look like in the hands of a couture maverick? Pleated, ruched and peppered with copper.

Première Vision York presented a “Denim & Couture” exhibit in New York last month with the aim to show couture, luxury and ready-to-wear designers new ways to approach denim. The exhibit, originally created for the Upper Jeanswear section at the Paris show, was designed by Parisian atlelier Jean-Pierre Ollier, who has previously worked with Dior, Givenchy, Valentino and more on one-of-a-kind designs.

Ollier’s vision for couture denim included copper melted into thread, ribbons of denim twisted and braided, tailoring stitches. The designer also played with washed-out edges, piped seams and ultra-matte coatings.
