INEDITO/ASNAGHI FOR JACOB COHËN
SECRET SHAPES COLLECTION
The power of denim, an indestructible fabric by definition, becomes malleable and soft to the touch, worked by those who love this fabric,
people who have made denim a hallmark of their name over time, just as Jacob Cohën has done.
So it is that, season after season, this ‘fabric from Nîmes’ is increasingly the protagonist of a true uncompromising lifestyle,
where denim can be applied to everyday objects and not just items of clothing.
Tackling this challenge is Inedito/Asnaghi which, thanks to a collaboration with Jacob Cohën, revisits the Secret Shapes Collection.
This is exactly how the INEDITO/ASNAGHI for Jacob Cohën – Secret Shapes Collection came about, presented during the upcoming Design Week.
An armchair (LOTO), a side table (CRONO), a chest of drawers (MELLIFERA), a bedside table (ROMEO) and a screen (CHARLES) have all been created with a mix of denim
and other iconic materials such as leather, pony hair leather and brass. In a crescendo of style are subtlety-perceptible ‘secret’ details that ooze quality,
timeless elegance, luxury and Made in Italy – values that have also described Jacob Cohën's DNA from the outset.
Furniture from the Secret Shapes Collection shall be on display from 17th to 26th April at the Jacob Cohën store in Milan at Via della Spiga 29.
The Jacob Cohën luxury Philosophy
"Go to bed with a dream, wake up with a purpose"
For several days Jennifer and Nicola had been going up and down those bridges that had become almost like a second home to them.
Sometimes a glance was enough to understand how to bring to life that idea scrawled on a sheet of paper.
Stitch by stitch, a finishing touch here and a cut there, their tailor-made dream was taking shape.
Discover the story of a tailor-made dream.
“I developed my first jeans because I wanted them to be comfortable, but at the same time luxurious and eclectic, suitable for even formal moments.”
The philosophy behind Jacob Cohën collections has always been perfectly described by this quote said by Nicola Bardelle, owner of the brand who had the brilliant intuition to create the first luxury denim brand .
Meticulous attention to detail, fit, and uniqueness, combined with an unparalleled level of comfort and skilled craftsmanship–pillars the Jacob Cohën lifestyle.
Made in Italy.
Tailored designs, rich materials and details that make the difference. The strengths of Jacob Cohën’s collections emphasizes the extreme quality of Italian know-how, revealing a totally Made in Italy DNA.
Everything started with a dream: originating in 1985 from the vision of Tato Bardelle and realized by the creative genius of his son, Nicola Bardelle in the early 2000s, is now carried forward today by the creative direction of his wife Jennifer. Jacob Cohën was originally devised as a made in Italy denim collection, where denim design for the first time was presented as a status symbol. It proposed a concept of casual yet sophisticated looks that would later become widely recognized as essential in the fashion world.
Jacob Cohën has always combined continuous stylistic research, skillful craftsmanship, superior quality and comfort of excellence. Today the brand is the reference point of daily luxury understood as a way of thinking, living and dressing.
Luxury denim, which means luxury lifestyle.
Starting from the timeless five pockets, cropped denim and truckers, Jacob Cohën's aesthetic is characterized by the almost obsessive attention to detail including jewel buttons, iconic salpe and sartorial finishes carefully developed by the company's artisan workshop.
The search for the highest quality raw materials, including the best selvedge fabrics and fine Japanese denim, is still the driving force of the brand, which over the years has applied its luxury attitude to the creation of total looks for women and men.
Our clothing is both refined and comfortable, intended to be worn and reinterpreted for any occasion. Reimagining one’s wardrobe with a timeless take on fashion that wants to express its value in an exclusive yet casual way, from season to season.
The Jacob Cohën habitué live in pursuit of casual glamor, new but classy, both distinctive and outside the ordinary boundaries of traditional design.
Our denim surpasses the conventional concepts surrounding it and becomes a true passepartout for everything that is elegance and comfort.
A denim always renewed, thanks to the combination with other items from the Jacob Cohën collection, for the creation of the elegant casual and a new workwear concept. This is done without sacrificing the impeccable fit of the sartorial construction, the excellence of the raw materials, and the deep study of color and differentiating details.
Thanks to a creative direction committed to carrying on Nicola's dream, along with the contribution of a style team capable of sustaining the brand DNA through the constant search for innovation of details and raw materials. Every single Jacob Cohën garment is conceived, designed and built to be universally recognizable and unique in nature.
The research on denim continues in the spirit of excellence, with constant focus on the design of each collection and through the creation of the highly anticipated seasonal limited editions.
Additionally, there are two new collections, tailoring for men and couture for women, where the selection of fabrics, the set of finishes and the fabrication of garments are taken to an even more exclusive level.
Today Jacob Cohën extends its philosophy of luxury lifestyle into a home line of fragrances, a kids collection, and a footwear collection designed to complete a total Jacob Cohën look for men and women.
From the presence in the top boutiques around the world to the ambitious horizons of expansion of the single-brand distribution, Jacob Cohen continues to thread the symbolic indigo blue yarn that from the beginning has represented a weave of dreams and passions, transforming ideas into garments to be touched.
A spiritual and refined blue, at the same time bright, dynamic and constantly evolving.
A unique and always recognizable blue.
Just like Nicola Bardelle, with his unforgettable joie de vivre and his statement “go to bed with a dream, wake up with a purpose” that continues to inspire the present and future of Jacob Cohën.
