Los Angeles premium denim brand Agolde partnered with Opening Ceremony on an exclusive capsule collection that aims to inject a bit of youth rebellion into classic workwear pieces.
The capsule, Opening Ceremony x Agolde, totals six pieces and is split in two groups. The graphics group includes two jean styles with the Open Ceremony logo on the hem and rainbow stitch work. The remaining capsule pieces, dubbed the carpenter group, features colorblocking on a denim jacket, skirt and pants.
“Agolde is a young brand, and from a timing perspective it felt like the right time to collaborate with a like-minded business that shares our same values and culture,” Agolde creative director Karen Phelps said. “We felt that Opening Ceremony did just that. There was a great synergy throughout the design and development process and the collection evolved organically, which I think is evident in the assortment and lends true to both brands’ visions.”
Phelps went on to say the capsule evolves the brand’s design with all of the details: hammer loops with screen-printed logos, copper and black hardware, the rainbow stitching and the two-tone denim colorblocking.
The collection was made in downtown Los Angeles with retail pricing from $198 to $275. It’s available exclusively through Opening Ceremony’s Los Angeles and New York stores as well as its online shop.
Agolde was launched by Citizens of Humanity founder Jerome Dahan and relaunched in 2014 with an aim at being the denim brand for Millennials. The line is sold at more than 100 retailers, including Nordstrom, Planet Blue, Shopbop and Revolve. The company recently launched a biannual magazine called Eighty-Nine, featuring emerging artists.
“It’s a really exciting time for the brand and also the team based here in Los Angeles, Phelps said. “Our focus is to continue to build on the momentum, evolve both our men’s and women’s businesses and continue to tell the story of those that inspire us.”
