Take the jean and trash it. Ripping and shredding continues to fascinate. Accompanied by bleach and paint splashes we use our jeans as a canvas to create our own image.
The denim underneath is masked by surface activity but it is the old style vintage crackle open end denim looks that are most appropriate for our blank canvas. Rigid non stretch denims are the best canvas for destruction - simple cotton with no lycra threads shred more naturally.
Trash fashion is old vintage with attitude. We have fallen in love with old denim and jeans, they are pre-loved, they have history which manifests itself through the rips, tears , fades and tints. Replicating the originals is where today's Trashion began but now we have taken it to new levels of destruction. Massive holes barely held together by loose threads creative bleaching has given new life to dark jeans. Tints will change the original colour of the jean or make it look dirty and well used.
Creative patching has achieved a life of its own bearing no relation to any holes beneath. Use different colours of denim or contrast fabric and threads - add rips on top - keep layering - keep adding interest. Create your own personal craft jeans.
Make shredding a feature of a simple denim shape - both indigo warp and white weft threads combine to create a sustainable "fur" appearance. Embellishment and creative destruction supports huge businesses with many success stories from small time creators alongside the great brands such as Levi' customised tailoring.
90's Grunge reappears mixed with iconic brand identities such as here The Adidas three stripe creates a new sport/street vibe. Art School attitude of old 70's flares plus paint splattered silk and black leather achieves a casual bohemian attitude.
