Denim : from cowboys to catwalks : a visual history of the world’s most legendary fabric / Graham Marsh and Paul Trynka ; fashion editor, June Marsh.
My friend said the other day it was time to pack away the jorts. Winter has started I guess. Let the real jeans season begin.
What is more fashion AND anti-fashion than jeans. Probably every person owns a pair and most people wear them, either to look cool, or fashionable or to look ordinary, as a type of uniform. Denim has become a ubiquitous fashion feature and for such a basic wardrobe staple they are still subjected to the whims and trends of fashion (moving away from skinnies into a looser fit, at the moment I think).
The jeans I’m really loving right now are my Acne skinnies (soooo comfortable) and ripped vintage jeans. But see, everyone has a very personal opinion on jeans and some are devoted to them. A website I’ve been loving lately is Jean Stories. Created by jeans lovers and former Vogue writers Jane Herman and Florence Kane, who talk to fellow jeans obsessives about their favourite styles, how to wear denim, what’s new, sneakpeeks into wardrobes. Seriously love it. (Particularly love the story of how a worn out pair of jeans, ripped and dirty, from a guy from Christchurch ended up on an editor from Vogue, ha! so FASHION)
