The revival of the season.
The Comeback King of 2015.
Denim, which was thought to be dying, is being revived through the update of structure and form resulting in the double denim obsession worn not only by Brittany and Justin but every blogger in existence. Double denim, when wore correctly, exudes cool effortless style coordination.
Denim has always been the necessary staple piece, so why the seemingly rapid resurgence of the double denim phenomenon as well as the spirit of its wearers?
I and many others view denim as a timeless classic, sometimes misinterpreted, due to its historical association with youth and rebellion. Denim, as we've seen these past few years, can be dressed up or down and is no longer confined to the category of casual wear.
Denim is becoming more than its jean and jacket counterparts, being transformed through a revision of design to update the style to fit the current wearer's interest. The once simple fabric is being redesigned by addition of luxe sophistication in both hardware and quality of wash. Although designers have also realized that the relaxed look is an essential part of keeping denim relevant; relaxed luxury.
Denim's revival has broken the "restraints" in which it could or would be used. Denim is fast becoming a staple through other forms of distressing and structure. The distressing of jeans has almost become a cliche due to large outlandish gashes making it look as if it were a dog's favorite chew toy before it was placed on store shelf near you. Distressing, thankfully, has become more tamed resulting in frayed edges and a single ripped cut at the knees. Its structure is being modified through the exaggeration of shape and fit whether it be relaxed or constricting to the body.
We are pushing the boundaries of the use and nature of a seemingly simple fabric.
Could the revision and redesign of a classic be applied to other fabrics? Could Silk and Cashmere be seen in different forms as well?
