Over the years, DENHAM has teamed up with inspirational brands from various sectors with the same result - beautiful pieces which celebrate the best of both brands aesthetics and tell their stories.
DENHAM x Tricker's
For Spring/Summer '23, DENHAM teams up with British shoemaker Tricker's to tell a story of authentic shoemaking tradition, designed with an ultra-lightweight aesthetic.
Built on the 4444 shoes, last commissioned in 1937, the The DENHAM x Tricker's Bourton shoe is inspired by breaking in a pair of crisp, rigid Virgin denim jeans. A process that takes time, use and effort, breaking in a pair of handmade leather shoes is very much the same.
The DENHAM x Tricker's Bourton shoes are handmade from a premium blend of soft two-tone olive-tanned black leather and are available in a second colourway in two-tone brown suede leather.
DENHAM x BLACKHORSE LANE ATELIERS
For Spring 23, DENHAM collaborates with BLACKHORSE LANE ATELIERS to tell a story of denim design, product longevity and a lifelong pursuit in the art of jean making.
After a successful career as a trained tailor, garment technologist and quality controller, Han Ates set up Blackhorse Lane Ateliers in 2016 as a long-lasting, durable antidote to fast fashion. Blackhorse Lane Ateliers make jeans with a focus on eco-consciousness, community and unmatched quality. The only jeans made in London for at least 50 years. By training and employing local seamsters and technicians, Han supports his vision to encourage a buy less, buy local mentality.
DENHAM x TIMEX
For Winter ’22, we joined forces with American watchmaker Timex to design an exclusive wrist piece. Introducing the DENHAM x Timex Waterbury Automatic 42mm wristwatch, driven by the pioneering spirit of the original blue jean makers.
Handcrafted using premium quality materials, the 21-jewel automatic movement of the watch is on full display due to the exhibition case back. Functional and beautiful, the 21 jewels inserted at friction points ensure the movement last longer. Automatically powered by your movement, this exclusive timepiece eliminates the need for daily winding.
Our iconic scissor logo, representing our progressive and forward way of thinking, is the focal point of this limited-edition watch.
DENHAM x ASPESI
The BLU NERO collection stems from a mutual passion for traditional craftsmanship mixed with modern technical fabric innovation. Born from the marriage of authentic denim blue with sartorial elegant black, this combination forms the collection's cornerstone.
DENHAM and ASPESI share a respect for traditional craftsmanship mixed with modern technical fabric innovation. Authentic denim and outerwear icons designed around conversations about premium fabrics, elegant form and sartorial style.
Consisting of reworked classics such as down jackets, sweatshirts, and denim jeans, these timeless fashion pieces create an elevated and authentic wardrobe. Made in Italy with passion, care and attention to detail.
DENHAM x Eastpak
The 5-pocket jean is the iconic denim story, built on centuries of denim tradition. Inspired and driven by the pioneering spirit of the original blue jean, we’ve been combining authentic craftsmanship with progressive designs and product innovation through our East meet West philosophy since the first day. Our collaboration with Eastpak sees us translating our design aesthetic onto the quintessential brand’s recognizable backpack and tote bag silhouettes.
Celebrating the best of both brands, we’ve cut traditional Sashiko stitching with contrasting indigo shades and panel play with Eastpak’s modern, functional and durable luggage. Recreating the patch and repair look associated with naturally aged denim, we applied this to special 2-tone woven nylons with coated surfaces to reflect the variety of textures found in virgin denim.
DENHAM x Grivec Bros.
We partnered with Dutch denim experts Grivec Bros. to create a unique limited-edition collection of Razor jeans. The collaborative jeans were handmade in the Netherlands at the Grivec Bros. Atelier and brought together our passion for authentic dry denim while honouring our respected heritage and supporting local production. Made from exclusive virgin selvedge denim, woven by Candiani Denim, our decade-long partner mill, the DENHAM x Grivec Bros. RAZOR jeans were made using original denim manufacturing techniques and craftsmanship.
Each pair of the limited-edition jeans features authentic design details, such as felled seams, chain stitch hem and in-set belt loops and is individually numbered. "This collaboration honours our shared love of authentic dry denim," says Jason Denham.
DENHAM x Reyn Spooner
This is the story of two authentic two brands blending their passions. DENHAM cut with Reyn Spooner, the authentic Hawaiian shirt brand.
We connected with well-respected Aloha shirt brand Reyn Spooner back in the Winter of 2020. A shared love for Eastern culture, kimonos and the Japanese ‘Otaku’ worship of Americana denim and traditional Okinawa printing techniques emerged.
With over 60 years of experience creating timeless patterns with modern styling, Reyn Spooner tells the story of the American Dream built on the shores of California and Hawaii.
Casual, laid-back comfort combined with mindful, classic construction. Aloha in every stitch.
DENHAM x ArkAir
Proudly designed and engineered in the UK, ArkAir has developed a reputation for creating some of the best authentic military specs. We teamed up with Ark-Air for Spring 2022 to design a one-of-a-kind capsule range. ArkAir's parent company Arktis has developed a reputation for creating quality garments, tested around the world under the most extreme conditions imaginable. Supplying the UK and European Special Forces, military units and emergency services with the best military-grade outerwear as a result. ArkAir uses Arktis's technological advancements and blends them with streetwear to create a modern, wearable aesthetic.
Together we created a capsule collection, that included a lightweight technical performance smock. 100% waterproof, this outerwear staple is made from 2oz Cordura Nylon and features a breathable poly mesh drop liner. Part of a set with a multi-pocketed gilet and combat styled trousers inspired by military garments, both are made from GOTS-certified organic cotton canvas. The DENHAM x ArkAir collection features a scissor bubble camouflage print specially created by graphic illustrator @Hedof, our House Guest Artist for Spring 2022 that is a modern interpretation of traditional military print.
DENHAM x Mackintosh
A brand of modern heritage that is synonymous with craftsmanship and expertise in outerwear, Mackintosh is best known for its signature rubberised coats. For Winter 2021, we partnered with Mackintosh for Winter 2021 to develop a one-of-a-kind trench coat. Applying our graphic handwriting onto the Mackintosh Oxford trench coat, we added our discernible style to an outerwear classic.
Our iconic, yet playful scissor motif and tailor-made features line the interior of the coat, whilst signature brand details discreetly imprint the exterior of the iconic British raincoat. Expertly made by artisan hands in Scotland using the same traditions pioneered in the early 19th century, each craftsperson works individually on a single garment from start to finish. The Mackintosh ¾ length Oxford trench has been carefully considered inside-out.
DENHAM x Pro Hunter GMT Master II
We teamed up with none other than British watch customisation company Pro Hunter to create an exclusive DENHAM x Pro Hunter Rolex GMT-Master II.
The result of our founder and creative director Jason Denham's impeccable imagination, this dream project was two years in the making, creating, perfecting and executing superior craftsmanship and design.
One of Jason Denham's favourite watch models, this limited-edition bespoke watch features several of our branded details. "We wanted to make our iconic scissor logo a key part of this project, so we created the 'Scissor-Hands'," says Jason Denham. The original hands have been
transformed into our iconic hand-cut 'Scissor Hands', and we added an indigo blue second-hand and GMT hand with black lume.
Available in stealth black DLC steel finish with a stealth bezel insert, each watch is individually numbered on the back case. The watch is boxed in the luxurious Pro Hunter black carbon case with exquisite indigo leather details.

Each sneaker featured our meticulous attention to detail because the truth is in the details while paying homage to the history of each sneaker design.
“When we got together to work on this project, my first idea from the get-to was crystal clear. Respect the icons and load them up with our passion for materials and ‘The Truth is in the Details’. It was a dream to get our hands on the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 95 and Blazer and go all out with no restrictions on quality and execution of materials” says Jason Denham.

x Atelier Reservé
After working with leading illustrator Alljan Moehamad, who was our first House Guest Artist back in 2010, we collaborated with him and his new label Atelier Reservé.
Co-founded together with designer Deyrinio Fraenk, they work with vintage garments and deadstock fabrics to create new, reconstructed pieces. For the ATELIER RESERVE x DENHAM collaboration, we created a unique collection that featured authentic designs, special upcycled fabrics and washes that reflected both brands aesthetics.
