Your jeans will never go out of style but it is the styling that gets you to the top of the denim game. Lane Crawford’s Womenswear General Merchandising Manager Kelly Wong shares her top 5 denim looks of the season.
The New Shapes Of Denim
“This dramatic new denim-inspired maxi silhouette by Rosie Assoulin works for even casual settings, by contrasting it with a re-worked denim jacket and platform derbies.”
“To tone down this one-of-a-kind hand-painted jeans by Rialto Jean Project, pair with a plain white tee or knit top. Finish off the look with a camel coat to add some polish.”
“The Seventies continues to inspire, and flared jeans are finally fresh again. This season’s peasant tops, fringe bags and platforms complete the look.”
Denim On Denim
“The trick to pulling this look off is to ensure the tones are in harmony – dark wash with dark wash, light wash with light wash. sacai’s denim jacket and culottes make it easy.”
“This androgynous weekend look is best kept simple; a crisp white tee and sneakers put the focus on the oversize proportions. Layer on the denim jackets in different washes and treatments for a new take on the exaggerated silhouette.”
Denim for Men
As for the guys, designers have rolled out new technical treatments, new styling and an expanded range that includes everything from jackets to shirts and more.
Neil Barrett’s darker indigo palette, Valentino’s expanded denim collection, Givenchy’s updated American workwear as well as lived-in denim by Denham, R13, Re/Done and Saint Laurent Paris are spoiling denim lovers with a plethora of innovative ideas.
