I’ll be straight with you: I love blue. Denim, chambray and so forth. So, the recent buzz surrounding a resurgence in the use of indigo dye has struck a chord with me. Not only do indigo dyes look gorgeous in store and in the first days of wear, the garment will only gain character and beauty with time as the dye bleeds and fades. The wearer will be left in each case with their own unique piece, unlike any other. Unionmade, a San Francisco based clothing shop, recently released an entire collection of gorgeous indigo inspired redesigns on pieces from a number of brands including UNIS and the Hill-Side. Apolis also makes an indigo wool chore coat well worth having a look at. I am in the early stages of breaking in said jacket and have nothing but positive things to say about it. It is wonderful to see a dye with such a lengthy and strong connection with work clothing being given the exposure it so richly deserves.
