Vegas was the place to check out the latest denim trends for s/s 2020 during the recent Project and Liberty Fairs trade shows. Brands offered a fresh perspective for the new season with everything from Hawaiian prints to tie-dye, skinny jeans, sustainable fabrics and workwear. Here is a look at the key trends from the trade show floor.
TIE-DYE - This colorful ode to summer was everywhere from T-shirts to button downs and yes, denim. Designers created everything from bleached tie-dye treatments to colorful ombres and artistic shibori treatments. Some of the best looks were offered by brands such as Levi’s Premium, Crysp Denim and Brooklyn-based Maurice Malone, who collaborated with Arimatsu Shibori-Some to create artful shibori denim designs. 400 years of shibori expertise paired with modern techniques created the colorful shibori treatments on Malone’s denim line which is relaunching in September.
