Key Styles: The Los Angeles-based retailer is pouring attention into premium denim. Now in its second season, the brand’s most coveted piece is the Koki — a heavy repair, medium vintage trouser with hand-sewn patching. It reportedly takes one week to finish. Design/Inspiration: Taking cues from “the kids in L.A.,” the styles have a relaxed Californian feel. While the denim is Japanese, the elaborate stressing is done in L.A. Basics include black, raw, white — and everything in between. Hems are, at times, deliberately left unfinished.
Prices: A raw denim pant retails for $275. The brand’s most expensive item is the Koki, at $1,100.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
