Denim is a mainstay at newer labels like Marques’ Almeida, Faustine Steinmetz and Ashish, but this season even the powerhouses got involved. Stella McCartney built her entire collection around a series of statement top-stitch separates. Burberry worked it into cropped indigo mini-jackets. Dolce & Gabbanna bejewelled it, and the holy trinity of Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel elevated this humble fabric into ‘investment’ denim.
How to get it right:
Choose one piece with an interesting finish. DIY-it by ripping the collar off an old jacket and rock a frayed edge. Choose deep-cuffed, patch-worked or flared jeans (skinnies are a bit of a snooze). For dresses, seek out seventies-style maxi skirts, with a buttoned up front or a 'd-chain' belted minidresses with wide lapels.
How to get it wrong:
A Candian Tuxedo is taking the trend too far. Thankfully, the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake epic all-denim fail of 2001 should keep everyone in check.
