The denim jacket never really seems let one down when a light touch of ruggedness is required to complete an outfit. Being able to wear appropriately for a variety of occasions, it is no wonder than the denim jacket has become a wardrobe staple.

This year, Liverpool UK designers Karl Mathers of Lord Swagger and Stuart Hughes took on the classic favourite and put a spin on it: a luxury makeover involving 2.1 kg of 24 ct Solid Gold, platinum details, and a generous 129 ct of Flawless Diamonds.

Karl Mathers helms Lord Swagger, a brand that revamps timeless denim classics through customisation, using pre-loved gems and stones. The company prides itself by the uniqueness of such a technique, and the ethical message that it sends out. Focusing on looks that are fit for casual after hours or festivals, the pieces are also great as statement pieces fit for special occasions.

On the other hand, Hughes is well-known for designing luxury tech accessories, available under his eponymous brand. Hughes’ products boast unique designs with immense attention to detail – each item even comes with its own handmade box.

The collaboration marries the unique flavours of both brands to bring out a contemporary piece that is equal parts staggering and luxurious. The “Infinity” took three months to complete, and was customised for an anonymous musician at a princely sum of US$4.6 million.
