Blue de Gênes
Established in Denmark
By Ole Madsen
The word “JEANS” comes from the French word “GÊNES” meaning Genoa.
Blue de Gênes is a denim label taking its inspiration from the origin of jeans: the history of jeans started in Genoa, Italy, more than 400 years ago. At that time, the harbour workers in Genoa used a robust fabric called “Geanes fustian”, made of Arab cotton, for working clothes and sailcloth. The material was dyed blue with indigo, very strong and thus well suited for work pants for these hardworking dockers and sailors.
This fabric was exported to other countries, and eventually known as the Blue from Genoa, or in French “Bleu de Gênes” since Genoa at that time belonged to France. The English adaptation of the expression then became “Blue Jeans”.
The story behind the blue jeans and Blue de Gênes is the starting point of this collection, a clothing line with an authentic look and high quality materials, fea-turing hand knitted sweaters, and Japanese selvage fabrics. Blue de Gênes jeans are produced in Italy, and just as Blue de Gênes is a family run business, the suppliers are small family run factories.
Each pair is signed and stamped by the tailor to assure perfection in every detail.

Established 2013 in Sweden
By Nicklas and Benjamin
Quality bathing trunks designed in Sweden. Although born in Sweden, Nicklas aka NIK was bred on the beaches across the southern parts of Europe. Swimwear became his natural choice of apparel in his everyday life, not only for lazy days bumming on the beach, but also at the gym, relaxing at home or even on the golf course.
Benjamin aka BEN was born on the Swedish west coast, typically spending his summers hopping from island to island on sailboats in their renowned archipel-ago. He would later be found at Central Saint Martins in London - surrounded with endless amounts of inspiration and creativity, he developed a vision to es-tablish a product that would bring fashion to new dimensions.
NIK and BEN crossed paths in Spain, bonded instantly, a few years onwards they decided to take destiny in their own hands - the rest is history. It is not a rare sight to find traditional wallpaper and flowery prints on men’s swimwear today. A classical concept that NIKBEN believes can be further devel-oped by offering swimwear that conveys not only a pattern, but also a statement or an unforeseen “twist”.
NIKBEN is sold in top retailer locations around the world such as Harrolds, Nordstrom, Galerie Lafayette and Fortnum & Mason.
