AGOLDE: LA Confidential

One thing immediately springs to mind when you think of denim: we all love it, and we all wear it. Aside from being a round-the-clock pleaser, the material lends itself amazingly to almost any type of style. We’ve taken a look at a brand that’s trying to push the limits of denims versatility: AGOLDE. The premium denim label, located in downtown LA, is developed and designed under the direction of Jerome Dahan, whom you might know from our previous piece on Citizen of Humanity – the labels’ sister company. Compared to the highly luxurious CoH concept, AGOLDE speaks a younger language. The shapes, styles and looks are inspired by decades of youth culture, embodying an irreverent attitude and creative spirit fostered by LA and its lifestyle. So, aside from the production – all styles are locally made at the company´s laundry and manufacturing facilities – the ambitious designs, which stick out due to the modern cut and fabrics contrasting with the styles from the past, make the brand so unique and … at the same time so comfortable to wear.

This is the essence of why we took a moment to create a very special fashion gallery, showing once and for all how individually you can style it, for almost any occasion you can create the perfect look. Also, don’t be afraid to personalise your favourite pieces with your own unique sense of style - in our case we found patches at a flea market that we ironed onto one of the key pieces of the current collection: the oversized denim jacket.

With this little DIY touch and a bunch of great ideas for wearing our denim darlings wherever we go, this editorial came into being - photographed by Lukas Rotter. We hope this inspires you as well, to create your own denim darling by choosing the most suitable base available: a piece from the AGOLDE collection …
