Tearing and shredding is incorporated into fashion jeans as part of a new original design not just to emulate vintage but to create fresh originality using denim as the vehicle. No other fabric looks as good frayed and destroyed as denim. Shapes are wide to allow the shredded threads rooms to breathe.
Head to toe denim has never had it so good. Each piece having a life of its own due to post make creative finishing.
Strategically placed laddered holes combine with pigment printed messages and laser finish effects. Mix and layer the effects of destruction and message.
Bleach plays a big part in this new ripping and repairing trend which helps to take Trashion into top end fashion with a price tag to match. The cost of destruction finish is as much if not more than the cost of the original garment itself..
Luxe repairing with lacing, zippers and bleach patched holes combine with old crinkle effect denims. New and old effectively mix as well as 80's black with indigo combo.
Worn out faded vintage ticking stripes plus brilliant indigo patched real vintage jacket are worn with pride alongside massive engineered holes with grinding at edges to prevent haphazard fraying. Stripes both old and new are enjoying another day in the sun.
By contrast geometric patching and piecing and Mondrian image pigment printing plus crazy messages have become a part of Trashion shifting the trend into a more strictly contrived and less down at heel style.
