The Faustine Steinmetz x Cheap Monday 2016 Spring/Summer Collection Is Inspired by Norwegian Black Metal

A rebellious range of distressed denim that still somehow remains “fairly chic.”

French-born Faustine Steinmetz has become known for her unique manipulation of denim, a reputation that definitely shines through in her latest collaborative collection with Swedish label Cheap Monday. Notable for her process of weaving and making pieces completely by hand, Steinmetz produces unique garments that are laced with a distinct air of rebellion and edge. Together with Cheap Monday, the two introduce a six-piece unisex capsule collection that highlights jackets, jeans, a tee and backpack.

Describing the inspiration behind the range, the designer notes that one of her primary influences was the Norwegian black metal scene. “The singer of a band called Mayhem used to bury his clothes in the ground, to make them rot, before wearing them,” explained Cheap Monday’s head denim designer Carl Malmgren. Integrating this death-ridden element into the designs, Steinmetz somehow still elevates the pieces with shiny silver buttons and “fairly chic” accents. The capsule is now available at Cheap Monday’s webstore.
