Highsnobiety

It was only a matter of time until Dutch clothing brands and Dutch fashion as a whole got their due recognition on the world stage. Hailing from a land and culture that, despite being relatively small and often insular in its demeanour, has been always associated with a forward-thinking mindset able to stay ahead of the trends in pop culture and the arts.

In particular, what distinguishes Dutch clothing brands from other countries is their inherent capacity to construct entire worlds around their projects, where products are merely a facet of their brand identities. Getting your hands on some items from Dutch brands means more than just a style statement, it symbolises a sense of belonging to a community of like-minded individuals.

A lot of Dutch fashion brands are pushing boundaries, redefining conventional perceptions of luxury, and shaping a fresh model of what a contemporary luxury business looks like for today's shopper. A model that embraces complete transparency, and prioritizes a digital-first approach. Most importantly, they're attentive — both to each other and their consumers. By doing so, the Dutch are currently altering the longstanding framework of luxury, causing their brands to reverberate with a new breed of enthusiasts globally, who nowadays anticipate brands to be more than just mere purveyors of tangible products.

With that in mind, here’s a guide to some of the best Dutch clothing brands that all Highsnobiety readers should know about. For the already familiar, it’s a chance to reflect on the best of the best. For those less informed, the door’s about to open to a whole other level of style.

G-Star

Since 1989, G-Star's philosophy has always been "Just the Product." This purposeful approach has led the Dutch brand to many denim "firsts": the introduction of "luxury denim for the streets," fusing high-end craftsmanship with street level edge to create a new denim industry; the positioning of raw, untreated denim as a wearable and desirable material.

G-Star RAW has also promoted the inherent beauty of denim by creating washes and treatments that enhance its unique characteristics and qualities. Today's sophisticated palette of washes represents a complete life story, from raw, unwashed denim to deep indigo dyed to extreme bleached, with treatments adding multiple gradations of wear to create distinctive, textured garments with soul.

Camiel Fortgens

One of the most obvious perks of not going to fashion school has got to be the ability to stay away from the preconceived notions of what are the "right" shapes, or the "right" fits and combinations that institutions are teaching to the new generations.

Such ability to remain untarnished by all these dogmas is clearly evident in the Amsterdam-based fashion brand Camiel Fortgens. Working with reconstructed, unpolished wearable pieces, the brand focsues on relaxed fits and often combines them with irregular crew necks, inside out seams and never giving up on the opportunity to use only top-notch fabrics.
