New fits and washes for women’s closets
From Paris with love, we’d like to say. And this is also the story of Jerome Dahan, a Parisian born fashion designer who in Los Angels discovered his talent for denim. After over 25 years in denim industry and working for many different fashion houses (Guess Jeans, 7 For All Mankind), in 2003 he established Citizens of Humanity, where Monsieur Dahan was the first to bring the concept of luxury designer denim to the global marketplace.
In Citizens of Humanity denim followers and jean wearers find something was missing in denim items, like new fits, fabrics and washes, thanks to the collaboration with Noam Hanoch, very important part of the energy and vision of the house. But there is something more, as Jerome Dahan himself once explained: “Noam is extremely creative, and when we work together there is no ego involved. We respect each other’s point of view and always keep in mind a few rules to ensure we are creating products that are consistent with what Citizens of Humanity is all about”.
The secret of Citizens of Humanity’s success? Jerome Danham loves what he does, and this comes to light in every collection.
In SS15 collection, for instance, fits are both slim and comfortable, available in an array of washes. The result is a casual-bohemian look, not to mention the new, sophisticated finishing techniques, mostly used in the Premium Vintage line for womenswear: denim jackets, oversize shirts, cropped jeans and bell bottoms are protagonists of a casual, ready to wear. From slim fittings to slim boyfriend ankle and sometimes ripped models, flared cool jeans (real must have of this SS15 with the return of the Seventies)… The result is a clean but structured, asymmetric cuts.
For Citizens of Humanity’s womenswear spring has new, lighter washes and silhouettes that will make an impact to any outfit. Slim or boyfriend, high or low rise skinny, Seventies super flared models, more than the inevitable shorts (how can they miss in a spring-summer collection?!) and many shirts or lightweight jackets. However, the protagonist is the overall, created in different models, washes and colors (from the classic blue to the spring white nuance). Every model is so cool, but we fell in love with the Quincy Cropped in Wasteland!
