Cool sculpting for fashion's favourite fabric, says Annmarie O'Connor.
The denim DNA has always been one part heritage, two parts rebellion. While last spring saw a revolutionary 70s redux, this season leans more towards evolution.
Expect an alchemy of cleaner styles making their quieter presence felt.
Gone is the andro-hippie swagger. What remains are its folk roots (embroidery, raw hems, wide legs) – pared back and clean slated with contemporary appeal. Style made simple.
Embroidered denim gives high fashion a homespun edge. Look to monochrome-threaded designs for best results.
Pleats and ruffl es lend quixotic charm to the workaday twill fabric.
Add a crisp white shirt and Swedish Hasbeens clogs for breezy brio.
Make like a Scandi with ovoid shapes, irregular hems and asymmetric draping for a fresh, distilled sensibility.
Still nostalgic for the 70s? Try a patchwork bag or button down skirt paired with an off -the-shoulder broderie top.
