KSENIASCHNAIDER and DL1961 Collaborate on Sustainable Summer Denim

The Bella Hadid-approved label shares its newest collab.

Following the brand’s Ukrainian Fashion Week showcase at London Fashion Week, Kyiv-based label KSENIASCHNAIDER has teamed up with sustainable denim brand DL1961 for an all-new Spring/Summer 2023 capsule.

Born out of both brands’ love for upcycling and sustainability, the collection comprises both womenswear, menswear and accessories, fusing KSENIASCHNAIDER’s signature design details with DL1961’s classic silhouettes.

Initially, the partnership began as DL1961 commissioned founder Ksenia to create a custom look for its “Indigo” exhibition at Frieze’s London gallery, which aimed to explore sustainable techniques disrupting today’s denim industry. As a result, the Ukrainian designer created a bespoke “denim fur” look, which has gone on to become one of her signature designs — something that makes up a large portion of the brand’s collaboration with DL1961.

“When I first discovered Ksenia, I was so inspired by what she could create from denim,” Sarah Ahmed, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of DL1961 in a press release. “Her unique design aesthetic and drive to continue working through turmoil in Ukraine are proof of what a talented artist she is. Circularity, sustainability, and creativity are just a few of the many values that our two brands share, making this collaboration an inspiration to all who have the pleasure of seeing it.”

“This collection means a lot to me,” adds Ksenia. “I started working on it when I had to leave my homeland due to the war in Ukraine. It was a difficult time, and the work gave me hope and relief. I wanted to convey all my passion and love for life in the denim. This collection is my personal ode to peace. The collaboration not only reflects the strongest and brightest parts of the two brands, but it also reflects support, love, and passion for work. It’s about enhancing the power of denim and both brands’ conscious efforts towards sustainability.”

Alongside Ksenia’s innovative “denim fur,” the collection features her signature patchwork designs and fringing, elevating DL1961’s core denim repertoire across cropped tank tops, mini skirts, wide-legged jeans and jackets.

The KSENIASCHNAIDER x DL1961 capsule will land this month on DL1961’s website, with prices ranging from $249-$429.
