The last few years a lot of new denim books entered the market. Some a nice, some are bad and a few are really great! And yes, there’s a new one to check out. The Daily Street made a serie of three books: Sneakers – Tshirts – Denim. Especially the last one got my attention. I haven’t seen it real live, but it’s out for sale right now. The book has a hardcover and contains 128 full colour pics. What’s the book about? Here’s a small description form their own site; Denim. Once a functional piece of workwear, denim has long since taken it’s place as a global style icon – but a small handful stand tall above the rest. This comprehensive collection looks at the most iconic denim ever created, from the original Levi’s 501s, through the birth of Japanese denim and up to the modern brands that have made denim the streetwear staple it is today – Evisu, Nudie, Momotaro, the list goes on…With photography and detailed analysis throughout, Icons of Style: Denim traces the history of denim through its most iconic pieces, from rugged workwear to hand-crafted selvedge and beyond. Looking forward to see it. Below some sneak pages.
