Design Team Takeover: Istanbul

31 May

The journey from raw denim to a pair of completed premium jeans can be long and varied. At 7 For All Mankind, jeans are washed, distressed and embellished by hand and there is a story behind every single pair. The process behind them tells the story of the thought and creativity infused into everything we create.

For inspiration for our next collection, our design team is touring Europe to find inspiration in the most unlikely places. First stop? Istanbul, Turkey, for a glimpse into this vibrant city’s culture, architecture and fashion–all of which might someday be the source of a pattern or details on a pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans. Here are a few of the highlights from their trip. So the next time you slip into your skinnies, remember that their design was a result of the passion of our incredible designers!
