Pepe Jeans London offers the service of Costume Studio since March, where you can complete the design of any demin piece. Integrated in the new concept stores and under the motto Do It Yourself (DIY), in this customization studio, clients can customize the purchased pieces in the store as they like. The stamping is laser made. The client can also choose to apply buttons or studs, efects of wear, color printing, among other choices.
In Portugal, this service is available in the brand store at Centro Comercial Colombo, in Lisbon, where you will find a demin professional to guide and advise the client during the costumization.
To celebrate this new service, Pepe Jeans teamed up with PARQ MAGAZINE and invited two artists to test the system and to a customization session for the May’s magazine fashion editorial. The artists chosen were, the designer and illustrator, José Cardoso a.k.a. Tomba Lobos (Porto) and, the designer and tattoo artist, Nicole Lourinho (Lisboa).
More info on this Pepe Jeans new exclusive and more about the pieces created by the two artists, here.

Following last week’s preview video, Carhartt WIP has unveiled the full lookbook for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. As always, the looks pay tribute to Carhartt’s roots, featuring traditional workwear pieces in modern silhouettes, as well as an explicit shout-out in the form of a crewneck sweater emblazoned with “Carhartt Detroit”.
The utilitarian vibe stands shoulder to shoulder with a distinctly trad aesthetic, highlighted by tattersall plaid woven shirts, garment-dyed button-downs and a cotton windbreaker finished with all-over mallard embroidery. Additionally, floral prints and nautical stripes on lightweight materials contribute to the seasonal story. Check out the comprehensive lookbook here.
With a new season fast approaching, here is a short behind the scenes look at what you can expect from the men and women’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
