On Sunday, February 11, 2018, Sophie Hardeman showed her FW18 collection in New York.
While denim has become mainstream, Hardeman’s FW18 collection continues pushing it forward, inspired by combining a luxury feel to street apparel. This fall, Hardeman takes yet another leap into classic American denim history, a sporty take on their iconic denim collection by re-approaching the traditional polo shirt and its wearer.
Hardeman FW18 is sporty on the slope and preppy’ in the streets. Warm up to denim down jackets and fleece lined jeans, triple-collared necklines, and exaggerated pleats.
Hardeman is a genderless jeans brand based in Amsterdam. The label aims to turn daily routine upside down and challenge public’s perspective. By using conventional jeans a wardrobe is created for all mankind. But by liberated from any structure of conformation Hardeman’s jeans question normality and let ‘the abnormal’ be the new sexy standard. The collection Out of the Blue is a re-revolution for the jeans symbolizing a redefined outlook on fashion.
