Sustainability is at the heart of the True Religion X Jaffa collaboration. The limited-edition collection will feature products created using upcycled denim (comprised of factory defects and overstock from previous seasons) to craft one-of-a-kind, meaningful garments––all with the intention to rework and rethink the way denim is worn and used.
Jaffa, who is known for his unconventional style, skillfully incorporates themes of imperfection, sentimental value, and genuine authenticity into each product, allowing for an overall repurposing of discarded denim. The collection will feature jackets, denim jeans, bucket hats, shorts, samurai bomber hats, slides, tote bags, and lighters.
“We were blown away by Jaffa’s creativity and attention to detail, which is what we embody as a brand. He’d already created some bespoke True Religion pieces from his own wardrobe, and after meeting, we were all buzzing about a collab. Jaffa’s understanding of the TR DNA, taking dead stock and factory damaged “Super Ts” and reworking them into new original one-off pieces excited us. We’re also excited to be working alongside our launch partner, Selfridges, who has been so supportive over the last 14 years.” – Matt Claydon
“After I met with Matt and the TR team, I immediately started to execute what I had in my mind - playing with the True Religion Blueprint- taking leftovers and recreating new functional innovative pieces - this is all just a bit of fun.” – Jaffa
The True Religion X Jaffa Saba collection will be sold exclusively in-store at Selfridges beginning February 15th, as supplies last. Prices will range from £99-399.
