The wonderful staple that is denim returns for SS15 with new lengths, new cuts and new life. I’m a denim freak so I’m over-the-moon to see it take centre stage in so many collections this season. Due to its work-wear heritage it often gets a bad reputation when it comes to luxury fashion but this season we see what a versatile fabric it truly is and why we shouldn’t pigeonhole it as something just for the weekend.
At Rachel Comey and Marques’Almeida there were soft frayed edges, at Joseph Japanese inspired shapes, and the 70s were a big inspiration for Christophe Lemaire, Chloe, and Stella McCartney. Washes ranged from dark to light and levels of destruction were low compared to previous seasons.
