From patchwork skirts to floor-grazing jackets, this season's crop of denim is getting a major upgrade.
Ornate embroidery has been Alessandro Michele's m.o. since he took the reins as creative director of Gucci last year. Bags and bombers aside, denim served as his most recent canvas. Think faded jean jackets satin collars and light-washed minis covered in flora and fauna that are already favored by his famous fans.
Vetements designer Demna Gvasalia sparked a denim revolution with his reconstructed vintage jeans, which have become a favorite among the street-style set. Wear them with a statement shoe for optimum impact.
Forgo skinny jeans for a slouchy, wide-legged fit that calls for nothing but a chunky slip-on to enhance the laid-back vibe.
