Behind the scenes from our lookbook for the Fall / Winter 2019 collection titled “Home.” Shot on the Northern California coastline, a region known for cold water, heavy waves, cliffs affected by wind, rolling forests, and blankets of fog. Coming soon...
With each development trip to Japan, we draw inspiration from new vintage finds. Our goal is to create washes that are wearable, unique, and worked through our modern lens. The first drop of Fall / Winter 19 denim is available now through www.johnelliott.com, alongside a restock of core styles.
The first denim drop of the FW19 season includes our slim fit Cast 2 in Reyes (Indigo) and Inverness (Black). We crafted these washes with a similar approach used in our Dillon program, which was a popular development from the FW17 season. With Dillon, we found success in replicating the same wear patterns across both indigo and black jeans. Our washes are often inspired by vintage finds, but it is difficult to find black denim with interesting wear patterns, as the denim is typically dyed through the core of the yarn, making it hard to achieve noticeable highs and lows. Unique to John Elliott, our black dye method is custom. The yarn isn’t dyed through the core, leaving it white, which is similar to indigo rope dyes. This approach makes it possible to offer a compelling, and authentic looking wash across both colors. Available tomorrow at 8AM PST, online through www.johnelliott.com and in-store at 8808 Melrose Ave.
The Bozeman Short. 🇺🇸 A personal favorite from the FW19 collection...Produced start to finish in Japan with vintage detailing and American flag patchwork. Releasing tomorrow at 8AM PST through www.johnelliott.com.
Selfishly, I try to wear something subtle that I feel confident in for the wave at a runway show. I found these vintage shorts in Japan two years ago, and repaired them with an American flag bandana I found at the Rose Bowl flea market. They turned out to be one of those things people ask about, and one of my favorite pieces. I wear them practically every day. These shorts are unique in that they are both nostalgic and new - a perfect summer product, which ties into the theme of our FW19 collection. (Paired here with Metallic Navy 1985 OG Jordans 😬 - sometimes you gotta stunt 🙌🏼) The first drop of FW19 product, the Bozeman Denim Short, this Tuesday at 8AM PST.
The Hooded Villain. Now available in Cardinal, Marigold, Spruce, and Cadet. The first drop of our Fall / Winter 2019 Mainline collection is available now through www.johnelliott.com and in-store at 8808 Melrose Ave. Link in stories.
