Slashed, Washed-Out, and Curve-Hugging Denim by Democracy of Nevermind


Denim company Democracy of Nevermind was launched in fall 2008, the joint project of six South Korea–based designers trained in Seoul, Paris, London, Milan, and Florence. The design team is composed of various fashion-world veterans, touting previous positions at Balenciaga, Corso Como in Milan, Hugo Boss, and more. The FadMashion-featured designers were first tapped by Urban Outfitters to create a capsule collection of flannel shirts two years ago (check out one of their slouchy button-downs on slide twelve), which sold out in two weeks. The early success prompted them to launch a full denim collection in spring 2009, playing with light and mottled washes and curve-hugging seams. While Lindsay Lohan has been strutting around in their skinny jeans, the line is stocked at Scoop, Alter, Court, and Oak. The fall collection was also just scooped up by Barneys.
