The Inspiration Of Glenn’s Denim

The styles within Glenn’s Denim collection take their cue from the subcultures of New York City, particularly that of the 1970s and ’80s when the gritty, troubled city was the breeding ground for radical new music, art, and culture. Punk was emerging on the Bowery. Hip Hop was making waves in Harlem. And, a new avant-garde of artists was emerging in Soho lofts.

Denim was so often the uniform of choice for this diverse group of young innovators and rebels, it was a perfect blank canvas to express oneself. This was the exciting world that inspired Glenn, through movies, music, and magazines, while he was growing up in Trinidad.
