Say goodbye to the stitch; the new jeans is kept together by glue! Droog presented the Gluejeans by G+N designers as part of the public downtown programme of the Amsterdam International Fashion Week, January 24th – February 1st, 2009.
The designer duo Gerrit Uittenbogaard & Natasja Martens left the sewing machine for what it was. They figured that glueing instead of sewing actually works; even for a conventional, steady pair of jeans. It took a while to find the right glue, with the right liquidity and colour, but it passed G+N’s two-year test: Gluejeans is a high quality, durable piece of exclusive fashion.
Gluejeans is handmade in the Netherlands and is available in limited edition only. G+N won a Dutch Design Award for Gluejeans and have been nominated for the Audi Design Award as well as the Fashion Award. Check out www.gluejeans.com for more details.
