A few years back the so called “heritage wave” swept across the fashion industry and brought raw jeans and worker boots to every imaginable fashionista, who didn’t know the first thing about denim or leather and basically couldn’t care less. Now, in the speed of light, the insatiable industry has turned to the next new fad, but for those of us that feel comfortable on the “heritage” shelve, we now have it to ourselves.
During this summer’s Copenhagen Fashion Week, the second edition of the “loudest, friendliest and most rugged event” took place at the Wrenchmonkees garage; the Iron&Denim ‘trade show.’ A celebration of honestly made products, the love for roaring engines and good friendships, Iron&Denim is a small “fuck you” to the established fashion industry. And the Monkees are clearly not the only ones ready for something else than mingling with the common fashion mob. In case you didn’t make it there, this is what you missed out on.
