It's pretty obvious that there's few material we love as much as denim--we have a whole issue dedicated to the stuff! So when we heard about an exciting new project from selvedge and Japanese denim brand and retialer, Self Edge, we knew we had to explore it more.
That led us to hop on the phone with Rain Delisle, the master tailor behind Self Edge's darning studio, Darn It, who created ten exclusive pairs of shibori dyed jeans for Self Edge's store in San Francisco. The rainbow jeans are truly awesome, from their intricate patterns to their rich colors, so we can't really blame you if you hop on a plane to SF now to scoop up a pair.
Or, if you're daring, you can read our interview with Delisle below where you'll get the scoop on the shibori techniques and then try dyeing your own pair of Self Edge's just-launched white, raw skinny jeans for women (available to buy on their website!), the 3sixteen + 577BSP. Either way, you win because you'll have the coolest jeans on the block.
How did you get started in working with Self Edge?
I would love to see Joan Jett, Kathleen Hanna, or Debbie Harry--any super-strong female musician I respect. I also think Janis Joplin would love them.
