Amsterdenim Customized Denim Jacket By Steven Oprinsen For Charity

Denim brand Amsterdenim set-up for the third time a special auction to raise funds for the food bank in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. For this charity auction, they worked together with artist Steven Oprinsen, so: ‘Denim vs Art’.

Celebration Auction

The auction is also to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Amsterdenim, and 744 years of Amsterdam (est Oct 26th, 1275). They asked Steven Oprinsen to create a special artwork with many references to the great vibrating city and what she stands for. This idea to work together came alive during the last edition of the Denim Days in Amsterdam.
