Denim, Reinvented

Jeans were first invented in the 1800s, for miners and laborers as sturdy workwear. By the 1960s, jeans had come to symbolize the counterculture, thanks to their widespread adoption by rockstars, and feminists who used it as a symbol of gender equality. Some high schools even banned the garment, which only served to further enhance its status.

Today denim has become a true wardrobe workhorse. It’s long-lasting, easy-wearing and has the power to bring a relaxed feel like no other. At Qua, we are rethinking the role it plays in the modern wardrobe, combining the comfort we all love with tailored silhouettes and elevated finishes that are ready to take center stage. A new era of denim has arrived – and here are the pieces to know now. 


Qua's constant mission to reinvent classics introduces the Panelled Waistcoat Set. The sculpted waistcoat and wide-leg trousers are paneled with mid-blue denim and black suiting fabrication to create a set that is very contemporary and unquestionably chic. The waistcoat features padded shoulders, silver textured buttons, and two functional pockets with shaped flaps. The adjustable buckle at the back gives you the freedom to wear this piece boxy or cinched. The trousers are designed with a hook and eye closure, angular belt loops, and four functional pockets that allow you to move unfettered by bags.


A modern way to switch up your wardrobe staples. This carefully crafted high-performance boxy-fit cargo is perfected with six pockets and metallic shank buttons. Designed to fit your taste, the silhouette ensures easy movement and with patch pockets, lends you extra space to be crafty and carry essentials at ease. 


One of the most important things to think about when buying denim is how the fit will make you feel. It should make you feel good. And this one will do just that. Precisely tailored in a column silhouette with a front slit for ease of movement, the denim skirt is an endlessly versatile addition to the modern wardrobe. Two side seam pockets bring in extra functionality. 


 Qua spills over its smartened-up aesthetic to the humble denim to bring to you this contemporary blazer with padded shoulders and a cropped boxy silhouette. Peaked lapels add polish to the garment. Fabric button closure. Wear with the matching Denim Column Skirt for a streamlined look.

The best thing about our denim capsule? All pieces are made in a dark wash so mix and match becomes a breeze. Not a fan of skirts? Pair the cropped jacket with the cargoes or the wide-leg paneled trousers. Dressing is always easy at Qua. Ciao!
