The decorated waistcoat and jeans evolved to include more fringing and braces for girls as well as cowboys. The indian influence becomes apparent with braiding of leather and hair shifting the original Rodeo concept to a Bohemian western look.
Rodeo and Rock n Roll evolved from a prescriptive way of dressing to a more Bohemian relaxed spirit. The Poncho once a garment with essentially practical origins became and now is a cover up with decorative opportunities. Teamed with well worn jeans the original poncho was an essential now of course we customise the ripping and repairing of the denim and create wonders in creative weaving for the once essential cover up which is now a statement of casual chic.
The worn and torn jeans that cowboys originally took for granted as their daily jeans we now re-create for a Bohemian vibe. Both in shorts and jeans of every fit and shape.
Relaxed styles in denim and work inspired oversized shapes demonstrate just how far indigo denim has evolved since the days of the original Rock n Roll Rodeo. Then the wearers of the on trend shirts and jackets at the time thought they were supremely casual and daring, particularly the girls, now however the relaxed and casual has taken on a whole new attitude. Less decoration more destroyed. Less buttoned up, more oversized and free.
Work inspiration for denims from Current Elliot and pretty floaty dresses from MiH jeans for the more feminine look.
MiH jeans twists the concept into original 70's inspired denims and shirts. The Western influence with a dash of fitted Rodeo remains with overtones of youthful simplicity.
