After a prolonged stint at home in your sweats, it’s finally time to step up your post-quarantine style game and there’s no better place to start than with one of SS21’s biggest trends: denim. From classic jeans to resort-ready dresses, board shorts, hats and bags, runway-inspired denim is everywhere.
While the 90s offered up iconic body-con silhouettes (thank you, Versace), today’s denim shapes are a little looser and laissez-faire. Pair jeans with sneakers and a baseball cap (Celine), add a touch of leopard (Paco Rabanne), or challenge convention by clashing an extra wide leg with a mini belt bag (Chanel).
With sustainability still high on everyone’s agenda, it’s no surprise that Levi’s and Miu Miu decided to collaborate recently on a new vintage denim collection created from past outfits. Iconic Levi’s pieces such as the 501 jeans and Trucker jacket were updated with feminine details including hand-embroidery, beading, and crystal — perfect for that summer getaway providing you can get your hands on one of the ultra-limited edition pieces.
