There is one thing I cannot live without and that’s decent denim. BLK DNM which is available at Avenue 32, combines denim, leather and great tailoring to deliver a collection that has edge. The designer behind the collection, Johan Lindeberg who bases himself in New York, injects everything I love about New York into his designs, from art to urban cultural influences.
There is something quite masculine about the clothing, with its edgy, strong textures, but style one of the collection’s cropped leather jackets, with skinny jeans and a pair of heels, and the look transforms into a force of femininity. It’s easy to wear separates, including cotton t-shirts, can be worn with anything you already have in your wardrobe. One of my favourite pieces in the current collection is the black organza bomber-style jacket, which I think, combines a romantic fabric with an urban aesthetic. It’s amazing really how BLK DNM manages to get this balance right in each piece.
I am a huge fan of masculine tailoring on women, and Johan agrees with me on this one. One of my “go-to” looks is a leather jacket with a white t-shirt, and a pair of well cut jeans, and so it’s quite clear why this range pulls on my heart strings. It may have a dark palate, but it’s just a natural colour choice for a collection that’s bold, yet beautiful.
