When in Rome do as the Romans-All I have to say is 104 Pandemonium was my favorite store from the moment I walked in! Check it out: www.104pandemonium.it. I had the best time with the girls! Well, I was in a pair of Dondup jeans that rocked my world. Pictured below is the straight boyfriend jean..it steals my heart every time I see it and it is PERFECTION! This 6 button fly barely sags, it is the perfect straight leg with a nearly relaxed leg in the perfect shade of blue. No premium denim line I have tried on has executed this fit! This is impressive!!!!!
STYLE TIP: In the picture look at the leg- one rolled one scrunched… this is the hottest thing in Europe and I think I am the only one sporting this special souvenir over here-join me!
So, Made in Italy: who is Dondup? Launched in 2000 Massimo Berloni & Manuela Mariotti have devoted a decade to denim in order to create Dondup denim as we know it today; sold in over 800 high-end retailers around the globe. In seven years they built a 48 million annual apparel business and developed denim worth drooling over with a little passion and a team of 48 members that make it happen every season.
Dondup was born in Fossombrone, in Marche, where Arcadia is located: the place where denim is given life through the design, antiqued details, manufactured and distributed-it’s home. Massimo worked side by side to Adriano Goldshmeidt and and several other groups of denim addicted designers. Origionally form Luxenbourg, Manuela Mariotti started with 2 handmade denim collections that she described as “Romantically Rocker”. Her mission for jeans “fit well on Mediteranian Women” that'[s it; plain and simple. So, she began a morphological study of the woman’s hips, knees, and pelvic that lead her to the lower pocket placement- the most popular denim model is the “Music Hero”
Dondup is known for their innovative and historical dye processes with Guado, rose madder, blackberries, champagne enzyme treatments, and blended denim, Massimo’s plan is to “consolidate the brand, strengthen brand image and let us know better”. The Dondup label, in currently in collaboration with the University of Pisa and the Lamoli Museum of Color; just wait for SP’11!
