The Spring Summer 2018 capsule collection veers back to basics, inspired by the everyday classic: denim.
The Metropolis Blue focuses on the utilitarian side of denim taking its cue from workwear and reinterpreting it through a modern city lens.
The collection takes ten classic J&M Davidson styles and recasts them as an urban uniform – fitting for a life in a large Metropolis. The styles are decidedly utilitarian – a no-frills shopper, perfect for the life on the go; a large androgynous envelope-shaped pouch, which is a day to evening bag that can double as a document holder; a bucket tote where the simplicity of the design is matched by the simplicity of the material.
The denim is paired with a tonal navy leather trim, which lends a softer touch, as if to reconcile the harshness of the city with its human inhabitants. The tone on tone approach is distinctly J&M Davidson – a humble workwear-hero material is set in an elegant, luxurious frame.
Crafted in high-quality Japanese twill cotton, which is non-transferable onto other garments when worn and resistant to fading, the Metropolis Blue collection provides a durable uniform and a link between the wearer and the city. Lined in a no-fuss natural canvas and featuring silver hardware instead of the J&M Davidson signature brass, the pieces are a fitting accessory for a pragmatic, uncomplicated wardrobe.
With their sense of essential dressing, these pieces are the perfect companions for a city dweller on their daily journey through the landscape of a modern Metropolis.
