Team 10: THVM Atelier
Los Angeles based denim label THVM Atelier joins SMASH! for the first time, representing for the westcoast and all denim wearers everywhere. Already running a bespoke jeans operation, collective creative studio, and biannual arts and culture magazine entitled Them Rag, this do-it-all duo means business.
Though the young brand is only a year old, they’re here to remind us that age ain’t nothing but a number. Their collection of high style but low priced skinnies have already made them a recent staple in every denim connoisseur’s closet and their motto of minimal design and excellent quality suggests that when it comes to SMASH!, they’ll be bringing the same no-frills powerhouse skills to the table.
Watch out, SMASH! competitiors!

With this year’s competition stiffer than ever with a whole slew of new teams hungry for the top spot, these reigning champs will have to fight to keep their crown. Stay tuned to find out if they’ll be able to it!
