Dear friends, we would like to invite you to follow us on twitter: twitter.com/bluebloodbrand
From now on all denim lovers are able to buy their favourite jeans at the new webshop of Blue Blood. http://www.bluebloodbrand.com is the brand new store of the ‘new luxury’ denim and fashion house.
For Spring Summer 2011 collection Blue Blood used the finest and most beautiful denim material. There is a zoom function on every product picture on the site. In this way you can almost feel the jeans garments and fully undergo the denim experience. The customer can check out the fit guide to decide with fit is best for him or her.
Blue Blood is however more than denim; it’s a mix between hardcore denim and high fashion what sets us apart. The webshop represents besides denim also tee’s, sweats, cardigans and tailored jackets. We hope you will visit us soon!
The Japanese are generally accepted as the best denim craftsmen in the world. Weaving, production, washing, treatment; all done with the skill of a samurai and the grace of a geisha. The Japanese denim is a classic one and made in the original autenthic Japanese tradition.
These 100% made in Japan denims are created with utter passion, which is visible through the most beautiful deatails and finishing. The ‘Made in Japan’ collection reminds people to fall in love, have fun and get lost in your dreams.
Our thoughts go out to our friends and colleagues in Japan. We will donate the profit of the ‘Made in Japan’ collection. Visit our stores, buy a ‘Made in Japan’ item and help Japan!
Selvedge is the (traditionally a red-and-white) stripe that you’ll see along the seam on the inside of old-fashioned jeans. More than just a fray – proof seam, selvedge represents a tradition, an attitude and era of craftsmanship. Here’s why we love it.
Technically, a selvedge (also called “self-edge” or “selvage”) is the edge of denim made on an old-fashioned loom. In the good old days before mass production, denim was made on fairly narrow 29 inch-wide looms by weaving a continuous string of cotton (the so called “weft” yarn) back and forth through the “warp” yarns. The selvedge is made when the weft yarn loops back; so the fabric cannot fray or unravel.
Blue Blood fan Dirk Buitelaar send us pictures of his heavily worn Blue Blood rainbow and purple selvedge. At the time he bought 2 pair of each denim. One to wear non stop and the other one to compare how the denim is changing after wearing it without washing. See the pictures below how incredible the jeans look after wearing.
We think the denim looks absolutely amazing, just the way dry denim should look like after wearing it intensively.
We came across this amazing picture on the internet shot for Avant Garde magazine. The denim and suspenders are Blue Blood, combined with shoes from Iris van Herpen for United Nude. Looks pretty good don’t you think?
