There is one item that has always felt integral to model off-duty style: the perfect denim. Since the dawn of street style, no item has pervaded wardrobes so timelessly. Worn to castings, to shows, on days off, and everything in between, a good pair of denim jeans is part of the off-duty DNA. What makes the perfect pair? It's up to the wearer.

For some, it's about low-slung silhouettes that are roomy through the leg for maximum comfort. For others, their jean of choice sits high on the waist and tighter on the leg. The most important thing is how the perfect jeans make you feel, and when it comes to modelling, confidence is the key. Most of the time, it's vintage denim that offers the best silhouette, which is why Neuw Denim draws inspiration from an archive of vintage jeans to mimic the perfect feel and fit.

Roberta wears Nico Straight French Blue and Jonesy Singlet.

With perfectly pared back silhouettes that give way to effortless styling, Neuw Denim's contemporary fit offer the vintage feeling without the hours spent at the thrift store. The brand also adheres to premium organic cotton fabrications and the use of recycled water throughout the wash process to ensure production is that little bit easier on the planet.

Below, we hear from models Roberta Pecoraro, Amira Pinheiro, and Ariarne Lepine, who are lensed by Joshua Bently wearing Neuw Denim, on their denim cut of choice, their go-to outfit formulas for busy days, and what style means to them.

Roberta Pecoraro

Neuw Denim

Roberta wears Nico Straight Libertine and Organic Debbie Tee .

What’s your off duty outfit formula?

Majority of the time, you’ll find me in a pair of baggy jeans or trousers pared back with an oversized blazer.

How do clothes make you feel?

Clothes definitely play a role in the way I’ll feel throughout the day and what kind of mood I’m in. I really enjoy having an occasion to get dressed up for or wear something different to my everyday attire.

 

What’s your denim cut of choice?

I love a baggy straight leg jean. They must be long!

 

What does style mean to you?

To me, style allows me to express myself and show my personality without words.

 

Do you have a go to evening look?

I love a suit. Matching pants and blazer, with a statement shoe and bag. Can’t go wrong.

 

Amira Pinheiro

Neuw Denim

Amira wears Nico Straight Total Blackout and Jonesy Singlet; Amira wears the Debbie Bootcut Boston Indigo.

What’s your off-duty outfit formula?

Tank top and pants or overalls and top, with sandals or sneakers.

 

How do clothes make you feel?

Outstanding. Relaxed & Sexy.

 

What’s your denim cut of choice?

Boot cut pants or boyfriend shorts.

 

What does style mean to you?

It is the translation of myself to the world, who I am and how I feel in a way that nobody else can tell.

 

Do you have a go-to evening look?

It depends on the purpose of the evening… A silk or knit dress it’s always a good call.

 

Ariarne Lepine

Neuw Denim

Ariarne wears Mia Straight Jemima Jeans and Frenchie 90’s Top .

What’s your off-duty outfit formula?

I tend to go for a pair of low waisted jeans or a mini skirt with a cropped tank, styling the look with a pair of sneakers, my handbag and gold jewellery. You could say effortless, though my boyfriend would disagree.

 

How do clothes make you feel?

Dressing has a serious impact on my mood, if I'm uncomfortable in what I'm wearing that day you can tell by my face/ body language. I love to shop vintage because it's always exciting to be surprised when you find something that fits like a glove!

 

What’s your denim cut of choice?

I tend to go for a tailored waist and wide leg fit, usually low waisted. Shopping for jeans is like shopping for a bra, time consuming, but when you find the perfect fit you'll live in them.

 

What does style mean to you?

Style is very personal to each individual. As I begin to travel the world for work and leisure, I can sense my style evolving with me. I take inspo from everyone around me. I focus now on quality rather than quantity.

 

Do you have a go-to evening look?

When in doubt, slick it back. With my hair out of my face I can focus on finding a fit that is flattering for a fun night out. Being most comfortable in some trousers or even some flared jeans I spice my fit up with maybe a corset top or even a just a cropped tee, something that I can have fun in but also be comfortable. Then finish it off with a pair of mules or high heeled boots and an oversized jacket when it's cold out. My summer go to evening look would be a cute mini skirt or dress with some cowboy boots or heels.
