In loving memory of Steven Oprinsen XXX Amsterdenim Jeans and Amsterdam Artist Steven Oprinsen worked together on various projects. In 2018 Steven painted a series of “REMBRANDT” jeans for his friend Douwe Bob and for an auction to raise funds for the Amsterdam Food Bank. In 2019, for the 744th birthday of Amsterdam, Steven painted a “FREDDY” jacket during the 2019 Amsterdam Denim Days Festival, again to raise funds for the Amsterdam Food Bank. More info on these projects via #denimvsart and HERE . After that he started working on many designs for a special collection which sadly could not be finished as our dear friend passed away on November 7th 2020.
Now, almost a year after he passed away, we are remembering him and his art by replacing the print on the inside pocket of our jeans with a special artwork he made for Amsterdenim. We know he would have loved the idea of his art being inside our jeans. These jeans are made in Italy using sustainable Evlox denim in a limited batch of just 180 pcs, all numbered by hand. Special thanks to Hèléne Bergmans and Stevens daughters Juliette and Florence Oprinsen for giving us permission to honor Steven this way.
The JOHAN tapered slim fit is named after one of the most famous people from Amsterdam, one of the best football (soccer) players of all time, revolutionary coach and philosopher Johan Cruijff. Typical Dutch normal yet very special at the same time, just like these jeans. The JOHAN has a slightly lower crotch and a tapered fit that is wider on the upper legs and slims down at the ankles and calves. JOHAN is our most popular fit, logisch. SKU: AM2103-126577
