Don't wash it - wear it raw rigid. Advice for the new wave of giant shapes both in simple suitings, clean wide cuffed jeans and cinched big tops. Indigo is obviously the foundation to this growing trend but natural dye colours with dark wefts are just as relevant.
Clever cutting and experimental shaping has been made easier with raw rigid or raw comfort stretch denims. The combination of starched denim ( in the right weight of course) with creative cutting and shaping sees the emergence of some amazing new garment ideas.
And of course when mid or lightweight raw denims have an element of lycra they are even more malleable and exciting to work with. Some shapes may look a little crazy but creative drama in indigo jeanswear turns heads and fashion hearts. Let's think about moving on from the normal bell bottoms to creating a cross cut "skirt" at the leg bottom along with a similar treatment to the sleeves. Variations of the trucker jacket into coat options have not yet been explored to the full - there is still a long way to go with clever interpretations of this iconic denim jacket.
Giant shapes and creative forms must be emphasised with top and multi contrast stitching. Twin needle seaming is normal for jeans but as with creative shape and giant forms this is being taken out of context and used for its own effect. Flamboyance and drama are the effects that are striven for with this new wave of super dark raw look denim.
