Kakek ‘Penggila’ Denim Sejati

Dian | 20 Apr 2017

GANLOB.COM – Kalian penggila denim dan punya banyak koleksi denim di lemari? Dijamin koleksi kalian masih akan kalah banyak dibanding pria asal Swiss bernama Ruedi Karrer ini.

Pria yang lahir tahun 1959 ini (jadi lebih tepat disebut kakek ya) mulai tergila-gila dengan denim sejak mendapatkan jeans pertamanya Levis 501 E saat masih anak-anak (1973) dan kini dia telah mengoleksi lebih dari 12.000 jeans dan jaket denim tahun 1950-an hingga edisi terbaru.

Pria yang bekerja sebagai geographer ini mengoleksi semua merek denim, mulai dari yang sangat populer hingga brand lokal. Semua koleksinya dia pajang di Jeans Museum yang didirikannya tahun 2001 di Zurich.

Kegilaan Ruedi Karrer pada denim bisa kalian lihat melalui foto-foto di akun Instagramnya berikut ini.

The new raw denim head Mirco @rocket19 from Baden visited the Jeansmuseum yesterday and grabbed for me one of the last Gunjo jeans made by Big John Japan @bigjohnjeans at the Zooloose outlet in Schönewerd. This outlet store sadly closes today with the last shopping possibilities for a few hours left only. Beside Big John they had Nudie, Edwin and even some Indigofera jeans. Mirco is also wearing the same Big John Jeans as I’m holding in my hands. Thanks for the great time and your raw denim enthusiasm you showed at my messy place. #vintage #bigjohnjeans #benzakdenimdevelopers @benzakdenimdevelopers #101lj #heavyused #heaviestused #heavyworn #faded #heaviestfaded #jeansmuseum #jeansmuseumofheaviestfadings #denimevolution #naturalfadings #neverwashed #rawdenim
