New York City is known for setting trends, but the style seen at Kingpins New York earlier this month reflected attendees’ deep love for all things indigo.
Double denim ruled the show floor where attendees paired vintage with vintage, mid-tones with dark tones and soft denim shirting with their favorite rigid bottoms.
Patchwork bottoms, quilted jackets, cuffed hems and nods to workwear—from shackets to worn-in boots—underscored the crowd’s knowledge about denim’s roots.
Others stayed true to city’s OG uniform—all black. Black skinny jeans complemented a black leather motorcycle jacket. Black cargo pants were paired with a black hooded sweatshirt.
Cold temperatures, however, brought out funky knits and layering pieces. Attendees layered flannel shirts over hoodies, pea coats over vests and checkered blazers over vintage tees. A pop of Barbiecore pink brightened up gray skies.
