Denim Love

 

Denim is a timeless fabric. Do you remember your first denim jacket? Or your first pair of fav jeans? I mean really try to think back. I know I’m sure you’ve been through many. That’s just the beauty of what denim can do. Denim is a durable cotton fiber fabric that depending upon the quality can go through many processes to get the desired end product. This means denim is versatile and can be customized into so many different styles. In fact denim is one of the worlds oldest fabrics but always seems so refreshing and new. Denim was used for the sail of boats and even western clothing. The late Saint Laurent was quoted saying he wished he had created the blue jean, something so classic, sexy, and so timeless ; all the things he wanted for his own clothing designs.

Denim shoes, denim earrings, denim on denim, and the list of ways we wear denim is infinite. It’s an ode to our upbringing and a nod from the past reminding us that nothing is ever really out, but rather just an extension of the before.

We know the denim trend is not as groundbreaking as the wide leg culottes trend , “I mean come on who would’ve thought we’d be wearing triangle shaped pants in the 21st century.” *See Vince side cotton slit culottes* Nonetheless, what’s super important about denim this time around is HOW it’s being produced. With global warming affecting us everyday, we want to make sure we are doing our part to protect Mother Earth which now includes where we spend money for clothing. With a recent lessen of strain on the US economy, fashion brands are forced to step up and create sustainable and ethical fashion.
