ART, ANTIQUES AND DENIM: One doesn’t normally head to the local art and antiques gallery to shop for the perfect pair of premium jeans. That is, unless it’s the Hamptons. Gaspare Asaro, a 20-year veteran of the Italian Trade Commission, and his artist wife, Marsan, have created AereA denim and are offering the “wearable art” at their Bridgehampton gallery. “The combination of my skills and those of [Marsan] made it natural to create a denim line,” said Asaro, who honed his fashion expertise with an American fashion company after leaving the ITC in 2001. Details and embellishments for the jeans, constructed from Japanese denim, are mined from Marsan’s work, which has been featured in solo exhibits in New York, Paris, Venice and Washington. “The concept was so different that we thought there would be a place in the market for it,” said Asaro. Of course, art must be properly displayed, so Asaro and Marsan created aluminum tubes that would serve as both packaging and display for the jeans. The jeans retail for between $160 to $250 for hand-painted items and are available in five styles and 10 washes. “The idea is to have something that is unique that melds with other unique items like the antiques and art,” said Asaro. The duo is working on wholesaling the line to U.S. stores.
