When Josh Goot and Christine Centenera founded Wardrobe.NYC in 2017, they embarked on a mission to revolutionize the classic paradigm of clothing with contemporary transformations of traditional pieces. Their latest collection, Release 04 DENIM, does just that as the brand has teamed up with Levi’s to reinterpret archetypal denim using modern silhouettes. Featuring New York designs and Italian craft, the new range redefines the denim industry with a luxury direct-to-consumer concept, manifesting the brand’s goal to pioneer a timeless and egalitarian wardrobe. For the first time, Wardrobe.NYC is available to purchase outside of their own domain at matchesfashion.com starting today.
This release offers four- and eight-piece wardrobe sets tailored to elevate trends of everyday style. Built around Levi’s staple 501 jeans, this fresh approach features a customized taper, modern zipper details, and asymmetrical seams for an original rendition of the quintessential design. The collaborative collection presents an array of denim designs including a shirt with an eclectic blend of western aesthetic and unconventional stitching, a versatile skirt that effortlessly complements wardrobe staples, and a boxy jacket that stands out as a statement piece.
“Collaborating with a brand of Levi’s heritage and cultural significance has allowed us to fully realize our own vision of democratic luxury," Goot said of the new release. "Denim has an enduring legacy in functional and timeless dressing, and in working with the Levi’s design team, we’ve had the privilege of exploring our ideas to create a new statement about modern luxury.”
As an agent of urban minimalism, Wardrobe.NYC works to cultivate sustainable practices by providing an alternative to the detrimental production-consumption cycle in fashion. With Release 04, customers can choose between various colorways within their set to maximize the ways they can pair each style with other designs in their purchase. Release 04 DENIM is meant to last, and the brand’s thoughtful approach to shrinking their carbon footprint is certainly making a positive impression on the future of fashion.
