Year Of The Metal Rat | Naked and Famous
2020 is here and with January in full swing, we take a look at the highly anticipated launch of Naked and Famous latest collection. As the only UK stockist for Naked and Famous, we are particularly excited to welcome this collection both online and instore. The latest collection does not disappoint with both the delicate design and exceptional quality that they never fail to miss on each and every pair created.
The latest collection mirrors the Chinese New Year tradition and this year, it is the year of the rat. Within Chinese tradition, there are twelve Chinese zodiac animals that enter an annual cycle along with five zodiac elements: wood, fire, earth, water and metal. Both elements, animal and elements are then combined every two years and this coupling will not repeat for another 60 years.The year of the rat symbolises a lot of things all of which are incorporated within the latest designs. January 25th sees the welcome of this new year, the metal rat. This combination symbolises wealth and the beginning of a new day.
The year of the metal rat is mirrored in a variety of ways in the denim. The 12.5oz Japanese selvedge denim used both red and metallic gold selvedge ID. The denim itself is crafted from rope dyed slub yarns that create this unique textured look in the finished product. With time, the indigo will chip away to produce high quality vertical fades – creating each and every pair unique to the wearer. The denim also features red pocket bags, a red and gold selvedge coin pocket. This is then all finished with silver metallic buttons and rivets showing you that not one detail was overlooked in the craftsmanship and design of these unique year of the metal rate denim.
Along with this, natural veg tan gold foil is used to emboss the leather patch. Within the patch, an extremely detailed rat breaking through a barrier is shown with nuts and bolts flying – adding a little drama to a classic denim. The rope-dyed indigo slub yarns begin with a textured surface and true to selvedge denim, it will only continue to become more beautiful as time passes. As time passes for the new year, you’ll be able to see journeys as the indigo fades to show just how much you lived in the year of 2020. Arriving in weird guy fit, they are set to go online tonight.
