Thanks to the likes of Vetements, Rachel Comey, 3×1 and Citizens of Humanity (just to
name a few), denim has become so much more than a mere wardrobe basic. With standout
features like contrast stitching, tonal panelling, exaggerated frayed hems, tailored silhouettes
and unique washes, the humble jean is now taking centre stage both on the runways and in
the streets, with just a few clean, pared-back additions necessary to make for a simple yet
wholly dynamic look. Denim is no longer a mere sartorial afterthought but a true designer
investment, so be sure to make the statement jean your next purchase and up the cool
factor in your wardrobe stat.
