The Rental Denim Archive

The over 400 denim pieces of Monique Buzy-Pucheu’s archive contain many brands, starting with the ‘Big 3‘ denim brands, Levi’s, Lee, and Wrangler, but also other highly sourced and collectible denim brands are included such as the late 1800s The Stronghold pants, JC Penny, Sweet Orr, Frontier, to name just a few. All the items are unique because of the patches, repairs, and natural wear patterns, so they all tell their own inspiring denim story.

You can rent these denim styles, and you can even buy them, using them for styling, inspiration, design details, fabric, fit, and of course, washes. Next to that, she’s providing an extra service too, if there is something specific a client is looking for, she’s going to hunt for it and knows where to get it due to her big network with other denim hunters and resellers.
