Anne Bernecker – making denim and army surplus for divas

Anne Bernecker Jacket

You’ve got to love Anne Bernecker’s pre-loved and newly-embellished Levi’s and army surplus jackets. Anne – one of those creative individualists you come across in the fashion industry – is a street style photographer par excellence and now she’s a budding entrepreneur too with a new online shop.

The jackets, in indigo, camo and washed-out almost-white hit the boyfriend-sized slouchy sweet spot for SS16. But there’s nothing gender-neutral about the beading. Whether it’s heavy, oversized Perspex domes or tiny, caviar-like beads (looking particularly good on the camouflage jacket), these pieces are totally on-trend.

In a world where even jeans giants like Levi’s are waking up to the appeal of creatives who are ‘repurposing’ their original jeans and jackets via paint, distressing or embellishment, it would be foolish to ignore business like Anne’s.  It may be small but such labels have an influence beyond their size. I’m hooked…
