NEXT SUMMER’S ESSENTIAL SKINNY JEANS INCLUDE ORNATE DAMAGE, MOTOCROSS STYLING AND ELEVATED LAUNDRY TECHNIQUES.
Commercial damaged details continue with placement rips, while hand-repaired slashes create a new ‘fashion-grunge’ look.
Last season’s biker styling takes on a tough edge with authentic motocross-inspired detailing. The skinny jean is updated with protective quilted-leather panels, heavy-duty metalwear and bold colour inserts.
Patchwork remains a main detail for the skinny jean with tonal indigo-blocking offering a modern take on the look. Keep the look contemporary with simple cut-and-sew techniques and subtle shadow patches.
All-over floral embroideries create a luxe, richly textured feel for surfaces, while placement inserts are a cheeky alternative.
Indigo or ecru patterns elevate premium denim, with Japanese- inspired designs looking the newest.
Traditional ikats and paisleys are a lead commercial direction while abstract designs offer a fresh fashion alternative.
Directional paint sprays and printed abstract tie-dyes create an expressive laundry story, while monochrome ombré effects look contemporary. Haphazard paint dabs and blotches create an artisan laundry look.
Metallic coatings continue to dominate women’s occasionwear skinny jeans, with foiled pattern, oxblood shades and new placements providing the main updates.
Update tuxedo-stripe detailing for summer with bold contrast inserts, reminiscent of sports stripes and in line with the all-important motocross themes.
Update surfaces with intricate abraded pattern and nicking or decorative engineered frayed looks.
Essential high-waisted styles are seen in premium raw-look finishes for this season’s day-to-evening look.
