Introducing the Rick Owens Made in Japan Denim Collection from the PERFORMA FW20 season. This Rick Owens collection is exclusive to our stores and will not be reproduced. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For this capsule collection we had our friend @_smithstagram do what he does best on the rooftops of Brooklyn. Here we have the overdyed slim tapered Duke model. This starts off as a 13.75oz indigo warp and natural weft Japanese selvedge denim which is then overdyed black. You can still see the DARK DUST constructional thread peaking through the overdye in most areas giving the jean a unique look. These will fade from black to a dark grayish indigo eventually with regular wear and washing. All Rick Owens Made in Japan jeans come with Japanese made YKK hardware, 100% cotton twill pocket bags, super thick black dyed cowhide patches, a full selvedge waistband, belt loops which are sewn into the waistband, hidden rivets, and a second elongated coin pocket behind the left front pocket. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are available now at all stores along with the rest of the collection of jeans, jackets, and outershirts.
