Kingpins Show Presents: Trend

#HipNJ had the pleasure of attending Kingpins exclusive fashion presentation in NYC, Denim Trends, for their S/S 2019 season! The event featured an installation of garments using in-season fabrics, and we were nothing short of impressed at all the gorgeous looks we could find!


A view of the simultaneously gorgeous & edgy setup.

Boutique Bazaar: The spotlight on the Middle East that drove last season’s fascination with re-worked Arabic typefaces further evolves this season to drive a more sophisticated, sun-bleached desert-inspired summer story. Time-worn textiles marry with ultra-faded indigos, cementing this as the season’s true vintage denim theme. Explore authentic artisanal crafts and techniques including border prints, Islamic geometric, hand-loomed blanket stripes & tufted surfaces.”

Shirt: Aruind, Pants: Cazik

Summer Goth: The Noughties is the new era everyone is drawing inspiration from, due to the recent obsession with the near-nostalgia. Maligned subcultures of the decade collide: emo-heroes such as Marilyn Manson & trash-fashion icons Paris Hilton and Ed Hardy mix with Y2K race references to create a new susubversive anti-cool look. Tap into musical genres of the era, including nu-metal, goth and grunge to influence both styling, detail and surface. Punched and deconstructed denim is paired with bootlegged metal typefaces and patches, S&M gothic detailing and grunge-inspired destroyed plaids.”

Our favorite presentation we came upon (among the many!) was by Amy Leverton of Denim Dudes.

Denim Dads: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more normal…Drawing inspiration from the mundane, this story evolves from the anti-fashion movement epitomized by norm core & athleisure. Taking elements of last season’s youth-driven sports-casual styling & mixing it with sensible apparel, Denim Dads encompasses a look that references suburban middle-aged dad style. This is a story all about wardrobe essentials: the regular 5-pocket jeans, the practical cagoule, the ugly sneaker, the blazer, and the basic tee.”

We definitely recommend perusing Kingpins’ website – you might find some inspiration!
