EAST MEETS WEST DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
Our brand DNA is made up of East and West influences. Jason Denham, our founder and creative director, considers Tokyo his second home after Amsterdam. “Japan is the center of the denim world nowadays, and when we started, we instantly knew we wanted to go East. We’ve built our brand there with our values, but with respect to what they do as well. We understand the Japanese market and operate locally.”
Leveraging heritage and innovation, we mix Western and Eastern aesthetics, traditions and heritage to produce the most authentic, premium, mouth-watering jeans using Japanese and Italian denim. Through our ’East meets West’ philosophy, we balance the best of both.
Our Japanese Capsule Collections is a geniune East meets West story. Inspired by ten years of partnership, turned into a lifelong friendship between our founder and creative director Jason Denham and Aki Negishi, DENHAM Japan’s CEO. A tribute and celebration of the relationship between our teams in the Netherlands and Japan. Each of the Japanese Capsule Collections features traditional aesthetics, superior fabrics and authentic DENHAM details.
