Remember when Vetements took design collaborations to the next level last summer?
During their new new show time - the brand now shows at couture week, instead of during the RTW fashion week schedule - Vetements showcased their SS17 line, which was bursting with genius mash-ups you just couldn't have seen coming.
Teaming up with the crème de la crème of outwear (Canada Goose), leisurewear ( Juicy Couture), footwear (Doc Martens and Manolo Blahnik) and more Vetements took trend-blending to a truly exciting next level.
So, in terms of denim collabs, they went straight to the mother of all jeans producers.
Not to be outshone by the Vetements waist-highs - a boot which stunned and amazed for impracticality and fabulousness (in equal measure) - Vetements decided to create a jean of epic and really quite startling proportions.
Let's just say, the brand added hardwear where hardwear doesn't usually go...
That's right, if you thought bottomless chaps were a thing confined to the X-tina era, you'd be woefully mistaken.
Vetements deconstructed their typically already deconstructed jeans just a little more by placing zips both on the front and back of the legs, as well as right along the crotch. And they aren't playing around, these aren't faux zips. This is grade A hardware, not for the fainthearted, but maybe really great for the weak bladdered?
We kid, we love these jeans, and if only we had £1,295 to spare, we'd be rocking them all day err'day.
And we're not the only ones. Turns out for every hater, there is a true Vetements disciple acting as counterbalance.
Whether you're not convinced or whether your enamored with their punk eroticism, you've gotta admit, this is a bold-ass statement.
To us these jeans are reminiscent of Erica Jong's fierce portrayal of female sexuality in the 70s classic, Fear of Flying, which coined the term 'zipless fuck'.
