Freedom according to Ryan Brabazon.


To launch their latest collection, Wrangler Australia are putting the spotlight on every day people who inspire others by doing what they’re passionate about. People who are curious, who create, who use their voice, who are on the road of discovery; People who are fearless and free to be themselves every day.

Wrangler are profiling a number of different people and personalities throughout the campaign period, celebrating individuality and expression with a personal take on the common theme of ‘Freedom is..’ and what it means to each individual. Their launch features a cast of inspiring people, including photographer Ryan Brabazon who created a photo journal of his recent trip to the Californian desert featuring Kelley Ash and Rob Moore wearing pieces from the latest Wangler collection. It also includes a tour diary of the Jim Mitchells, behind the scenes from their latest tour, and Leah Hoff, an artisan free hand embroiderer who created bespoke pieces for Wrangler.

All of the denim in their new collection has had a specialty softener added for a soft touch, deeper colour and that all important ability to become a favourite instantly. The pinnacle pieces from the range, the Freedom Denim styles, are crafted in premium European stretch performance denim. Wrangler have successfully combined comfort, a unique silk touch and high powered retention for the ultimate vintage wash on the comfiest stretch fabric going around.
