Kingpins and Amsterdam Denim Days
We spent 3 days in Amsterdam at The Kingpins Show and at The Amsterdam Denim Days, last week.
Kingpins is a denim supply chain show started in 2004. It is a very intimate fair but it has a global spread. You can also find Kingpins shows in New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Hong Kong and India.
Kingpins is scheduled from the 7th until the 8th of May in Amsterdam, from the 22nd until the 23rd of July in new York and from the 29th until the 30th of July in Los Angeles.
Amsterdam Denim Days is a new initiative from House of Denim; It consists of related events in Amsterdam to celebrate craftsmanship & innovation in denim.
Amsterdam Denim Days is scheduled from the 7th until the 10th of May. A special Denim Days programme has been carried out throughout Amsterdam, with a range of events and activities in and around the most important denim stores in the city. We went to the shops of Denham, G-Star Raw, Chasin’ and Tenue de Nîmes.
It was a wonderful experience, because we breathed innovation and creativity around the city. We felt the passion and ambition of a city that wants to become the capital of denim in the world and, for what we have seen, it can succeed.
