Where the runway meets the street

The denim jacket is celebrating a revival this season. Much like the bomber jacket, the classic silhouette  has seen a strong comeback in recent time. It has of course never been gone, but we feel like it is now finally again a staple wardrobe piece that one should have in the closet. You can dress it down, but also wear it under a nice coat and dress it up, adding a bit more of a street flair to an otherwise classy outfit. We have selected a solid range of different styles, including simple and basic denim jackets, but also distressed, colored and more attention seeking models, which have released for Spring 2013.

See our selection of 9 Denim Jackets for Spring 2013 here below.


This is our personal favorite by Japanese brand Neighborhood. A washed black version with beautiful beaded patterns on the sleeves. Get it here.


A great version for the summer, French brand A.P.C. presents a light wash with an overall minimalist approach, just like we are used to see from them. You can buy it now here.


Another style that you cannot go wrong with. Swedish brand ACNE keeps it clean, especially with the unbranded buttons. Buy it here.

Maison Martin Margiela

Margiela of course plays with the washes and other elements of the jacket, resulting in something a little more special. You can get it here.

Saint Laurent

Hedi Slimane presents a darker, yet still very classic, wash for Spring 2013. The fit of course stands out and makes this one a special piece. You can buy the jacket here.

Opening Ceremony

A little color and some technical details have been added by New York’s Opening Ceremony. You can remove the sleeves and even wear the jacket as a backpack, when its getting too hot this summer. Get it now here.


A nice acid wash comes from BLK DNM. We like the details and especially that they did not go too far with the wash on the jacket, making it special and still rather easy to wear. It is now in stock here.

Richard Nicoll

A mix of old and new, Richard Nicoll keeps the base classic while playing with the collar and the pocket flaps of its new Spring 2013 denim jacket. Get it here.


The Japanese brand goes down the workwear route, making it a little more of a jacket than the others, with great details on the collar and lining. Get it here.
