AW11 NS DENIM draws inspiration from the notion of Natural Selection, the spirit of competition and evolutionary progress. It is the essence of constant improvement that drives who we are, what we do and how we do it. We salute the denim pioneers before us and we respect the creators that surround us today. The NS DENIM brand reflects our core value of sincerity and functionality. Our passion for denim determines our pursuit for originality whilst preserving our strict rules of authenticity and no compromise. The foundations of the brand are its fabrication and the richness of its detailing. All living things for survival and this empowers Natural Selection Denim in its battle for recognition, authority and innovation.

 

NS DENIM’s AW11 Collection draws inspiration from the theme ‘Hierarchy within the Railroad’.

A collection inspired by the uniforms and outfits worn by all male workers involved in the railroad, from the officer’s, right through to the Labourers laying the tracks, specifically the outer wear which in also introduced into the AW 11 denim collection. Fabrics include British Corduroy, Japanese Cotton and Italian wool. Using heritage reference from the railroad theme, but interoperated in a modern way, with coloured multi checks and chambray lining.
