Kingpins Spring Summer ’19 Denim

We have only just stepped out of Spring Summer 17 and already the denim industry is onto Spring Summer 19! Kingpins’ Spring Summer ’19 kicked off the Summer 2019 tradeshows, showcasing the latest denim developments that are set to be trending 18 months from now.

Denim Washes – Ecru and Lilac Blues

Neutral tones were growing in presence at the show with ecru being the key driver. White wash denim has yet to make a come back as brands and denim mills favour organic tones of ecru which offer a more worn in, natural aesthetic.

Denim Finishes – Orange Peel and Bleached

Orange peel denim has been a growing trend over recent seasons however it can sometimes be so subtle it’s hard to spot.  Orange peel is a subtle acid wash that creates an authentic vintage-look. This texture was seen across mid and light indigo tones.
