Kings & Paupers to debut their first denim collection during the opening of Vancouver Fashion Week's Menswear Show.

Vancouver, Canada, November 01, 2011 --( Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) is anything but blue with the addition of the new premium men’s denim collection, Kings & Paupers. Vancouver is one of only two cities where Kings & Paupers will be stocked and distributed, and VFW will be introducing this exclusive line on November 2nd, 2011, to launch its Menswear Show, which includes a surprise finale.

Uniquely designed, each piece is "made for one, but fit for all." The brand’s individuality and versatility will be illustrated at the VFW VIP Opening Gala on November 1st, 2011 when Kings & Paupers outfits the gala host Andy Chu, President and CEO of Arc 2 Intertainment, and Creator/Executive Producer of FMA.

About Kings & Paupers:
This premiere signature collection focuses intensely on the creative process behind its denim, and every pair reflects the high quality workmanship. The fabrics are generated precisely for Kings & Paupers by Japanese artists using traditional handlooms and crafted in limited supply. Its spectrum of indigo shades offers a fresh contemporary approach for Spring 2012 that combines a classic look with superior styling and fit. They include the authentic signature of each artist responsible for the detailing, affixed to the interior front pocket. With an already well-received men’s line, Kings & Paupers plans to launch a women’s denim collection next spring.
