We’ve got the blues — and no, it’s not because of the weather! Transition your wardrobe to spring and prepare for the season to come with a little denim drama to beat the yo-yo temperatures ahead. For spring, nothing reflects fashion’s laid-back new narrative better than a big blue ocean of bruised and battered denim. The robust cotton twill fabric is reimagined from its humble beginnings in chambray and light-wash finishes using frayed, ripped and faced blue elements to give even the most feminine of shapes a rugged, street-smart swagger. Think workman-inspired boiler suits at Balmain, 90s redux overalls at DKNY, pinstriped and patchworked at Rebecca Taylor and shredded at Ashish. It’s a tried, tested and true rhapsody in blue.
