Because spring’s deluxe
denim = the most comfy way
to be on trend this season.
Dive into the jean pool.

It’s the trend of the season so why wouldn’t
denim take a leaf out of the seventies for
spring summer inspiration. Think drummer-
boy jackets, wide legs – ranging from bootcut
to a full-blown flare, mom-from-the-seventies
belted dresses and the perfect denim mini
(preferably buttoned to the high heavens).
Retro inspiration is plentiful on the catwalk,
from Louis Vuitton’s denim ankle and
knee-high boots to Chloé’s ultra-chic and
ultra-French take on the trend. Others
embraced the rock star element, namely
Tommy Hilfiger – a Sgt Pepper catwalk
moment – who splashed patchwork across
boots, jeans and jackets, and opened the show
with descended 70s rock royalty, Georgia
May Jagger. It’s only natural to look to those
who made it so effortlessly cool the first time
around to bring this trend full circle.

Get on board with military’s more understated sister,

fashion it’s no surprise that a simple, streamlined look
pervades. Think pocket-detailing, boiler suits and fuss-free
design.
THE BRANDS
Topshop: the high street giant recently
announced actress Hailey Baldwin as the
face of their current denim collection;
Whistles branched into a newly-expanded
denim range with eight key shapes for the
season that’s already a hit with fashion
editors; while Levi’s recently launched a
rebooted 501 jean in collaboration with
Net-a-porter.com – the brand has tapered
the legs of the denim stalwart for a more
modern fit; lastly Tommy Hilfiger’s
People’s Place collection evokes fashion’s
Almost Famous moment and the very first
store opened by Hilfiger back in 1969
– an institute of the times that were. “Our
friends would stop by and we’d listen to
records together or have concerts in the
basement. Music was a very important
part of the store experience. It was the
time when bands like The Beatles and The
Rolling Stones were setting all the trends
and we all wanted to look like rock stars.”
