Fashion Wardrobe

Original founder of Seven For All Mankind and Citizens of Humanity, jean genius Jerome Dahan’s latest offering is A Gold E – a premium denim label but at an affordable price. We’re excited …

“I saw a gap in the denim market for something that sits between the top luxury labels  and the high street, and focuses on superior fabrics and fabrication’,’ says French denim designer Jerome Dahan, whose new denim range A Gold E is making waves in fashion circles. ‘‘LA is an amazing place for inspiration, it’s the denim capital of the world. The most important thing about a pair of jeans is that they suit your body shape and most importantly, make you feel good. I’m really enjoying the 1990s revival that’s happening right now: I have iconic images of Kate Moss, Christy Turlington and Claudia Schiffer on my mood board. The perfect denim capsule wardrobe? A pair of black skinny jeans (they’ll take you from day to night), boyfriend jeans in a true-blue wash and, for summer, white jeans have come back in a modern way – if you opt for a ripped style it toughens up the look. Finally, a denim jacket goes with everything! Next season, the move back towards classic washes and styles will continue – the boyfriend style has become the updated flare. A mid-blue wash is timeless. I also love a deep indigo or black. Flattering denim tips? Always buy a size smaller as they will fit you better in the long run. Also, boyfriend- or slouchy-style jeans look amazing with heels.” A Gold E jeans, from €140-€180, are at Arnotts now, www.arnotts.ie.
