Moussy Denim Review [December 2020]

MOUSSY VINTAGE is a brand you need to know. Since launching in 2016, the Japanese label quickly gained a huge following from blogger and celebrities alike. They bring minimal, almost menswear sense to their range of styles.

Their denim line features socially conscious production. Every step — from fabric production, assembly and washing — is all done in Japan, together with eco-friendly factories. The attention to this detail definitely shows in their end product.

Aesthetically, Moussy shifts away from the dark stiff traditional Japanese denim, featuring light washes and stretch denim.

The Tokyo-based label has now expanded into RTW with knits and tees with the same cheekiness as their denim. In fact, they’ve just launched a webstore called Azul by Moussy.

Get ready for their foray into men’s come with the line launching for Spring 2019.

MOUSSY VINTAGE Odessa Wide Straight Jeans $330.00

The Loa is the cut of the moment. They are a wide leg style that still has a slim cut to them and a frayed cropped cut to help you show off a cool pair of boots.
