The Best Fall Denim Looks as Told by a Runways
August 18, 2017 - fall Denim
Denim, now in a 144th (ish) year of existence, is one of a many renouned fabrics on Earth. The justification lies all around you. (If you’re acid for petrify examples, concede us to approach your courtesy to Kendall Jenner’s derrière.)
Of course, as with anything we use to adorn a bodies, denim is not defence to a lessen and upsurge of trends. In 2014, for a initial time ever, sales of jeans in a U.S. (the land of denim devotees like James Dean, Calvin Klein and Rihanna) fell. Had jeans mislaid their appeal, their aura of stylish insouciance? The Fall 2016 runways pronounced “perhaps, though denim itself hasn’t.” Alexander Wang, Demna Gvasalia, Miuccia Prada and some-more gave a element new life, moulding it into head-turning parkas, shirtdresses, dusters and suiting.
Sadly, it appears denim’s struggles aren’t over. The Fall 2017 runways were noticeably light on a blue stuff. Famously denim-centric brands like Ellery, Marques ’ Almeida and Acne Studios ditched a element in preference of a some-more grown-up (read: suiting-heavy) aesthetic. We censure athleisure/fashionable streetwear fatigue. That said, a fabric didn’t totally disappear from a catwalks (nor will it ever). Denim faithfuls like A.P.C., Isabel Marant, Diesel Black Gold and Faustine Steinmetz offering uninformed new takes on a Italian-born, American-bred material.
