Because it's a must in every closet.

There is no denying that denim is an essential—you probably own multiple pairs, in various washes and cuts, and have worn them to no end. But you've never really worn denim if you haven't slipped into a piece made by Carl Jan Cruz. No one understands the fabric in its most glorious form quite like this local designer.

Working with somaesthetics, or the improved understanding of bodily perception, performance, and presentation, Carl is able to master craftsmanship and design that result in unique pieces that underline the natural being of things. His pieces look unfinished, raw, and undone, like how most things really are. And this sentiment brings to surface the beauty of natural occurence, of letting things be.

Reworking denim far from what we have known, Carl brings to light the fabric's full potential. Under the brand Carl Jan Cruz, this is denim in its most emotive form. This is denim in its truest manifestation.

Below, we've curated five of his pieces that we are currently in love with. These are pieces we are sure you will never find in racks of fast fashion brands. Scroll down to see unique denim articles you should have in your closet.
