We had the good fortune of connecting with Vinny & Saul Jimenez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Vinny & Saul, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
We wanted create a fantasy that brought people into a world of creativity and bravery. A place where we can experiment with fashion and design. MENEZ was a way to bring our designs into reality, we started MENEZ to offer people something that would empower them to take on the day, night, or whatever time you want to take over the world.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We are Vincent and Saul Jimenez, we are brothers and the designers for MENEZ. We created this brand together in 2012 with a jewelry collection. We were definitely inspired by our grandmother and mother, our grandmother had an atelier in Mexico since the sixties, where she made women’s and children’s clothing. From a young age we observed them making pieces, we loved giving them our fashion ideas. We wanted to make clothing and accessories for some time, our clothing debut was in 2017. Today MENEZ makes couture and ready-to-wear clothing, handbags, and jewelry. We like to pull our customer into the MENEZ dimension when you put on an outfit, giving them armor to take on the world.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We love going to museums like the MCA, Denver Art Museum, and the galleries in the Santa Fe Art District. Its a way of getting inspired by a lot of local art from amazing artists. Denver is changing and growing everyday, we love to go out and explore whats out there and whats new.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Alicia Myers and Samantha Joseph Of Color Of Fashion, they are doing amazing things with fashion in Denver. They are bringing amazing designers from around the country into Denver, they also have supported us since day 1. Not to mention they are amazing models, and creative directors for amazing photo shoots. We cant wait to see what they do next.
