FEATURE 25DIRECTOR'S CUT #1
To welcome the 2020AW season's collection, DESCENDANT started to re-recognize the concept of workwear.
Classic workwear consisted of using denim, twill, duck, and CORDURA as the primary materials. The Descendant Work Uniform, aka DWU series, has been developed thus far, with items that integrate the wide range of DNA in workwear with new styles such as denim in an original silhouette.

Among them, more variations than ever before, five new models of straight and baggy type have been added to the DESCENDANT denim line, against the background of the 90's street culture.
Japan has a long history of enjoying the aged deterioration of denim. The vintage denim market was already well established in the 90's, we shared the value of growing and creating your own denim by wear, which gives different expressions to them as the color fades and becomes distressed.
The 1993 STRAIGHT JEANS, not only does the beauty of the faded indigo stands out but also the rarity of the differences between the old and new details, with characteristic distortion of the selvedge denim.
On the other hand, the 1995 BAGGY JEANS is reminiscent of the oversized silhouette from youth culture that swept the 90's.
They are both basic denim material, but the backbones of each origin have concepts unique to DESCENDANT.

The 1993 STRAIGHT JEANS has the ideal conditions of dark blue denim covered with a haze of white cotton thread by one wash, coordinated with tube socks and black leather loafers and tassel loafers.
Meanwhile, from the Descendant Work Uniform, aka DWU series, features details from military wear. The DWU TWILL JACKET using cotton twill with a pigment dye finish, which is DESCENDANT's particular preference for the dyeing process, has four pockets on the front body and arm pockets on both sides.
The DWU TWILL TROUSERS, which is bold in appearance, features cargo pockets and velcro straps at the hem. We pursued the standard that's unique to DESCENDANT based on the directors' favorite fatigues.

Items that are post-dyed, such as pigment dyes, go well with yarn dyed items.
We introduced the mock neck TURTOISE LS styling as an inner under the DWU TWILL JACKET, along with the DIN-4 SKINNY JEANS, which has the most narrow silhouette. We also put together the DWU TWILL TROUSERS, which coordinates with the CETUS LS's wide silhouette.
