Virtually everyone who’s “anyone” has been wearing them for the fashion show season whether it’s in New York, London, Milan or Paris. So much so that its safe to say that they are this season’s “It” item! We’re talking about Vetements denim! That pair of vintage jeans with the uneven, raw, unfinished hem which reaches the ankle.
Each pair of Vetements jeans are unique and hand-made taking up to six hours to make each pair. What makes these jeans so special is that each pair is a reconstruction and a construction of two vintage pairs of jeans. The jeans flatter the buttocks giving them a slight lift due to the dark patches on the rear from the removal of the pockets on vintage jeans.
You would think that the hefty price tag of £800 would stop people from buying them. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. The jeans sold out within days on MatchesFashion.com and on Net-A-Porter! To be unique, dedicated fashionistas are forced to fork out the money to get that pair of jeans that no one else will have!
As with most “It” items, Vetements has already had an impact on the high-street! So if you can’t justify spending £800 for a pair of jeans you can still join in the raw denim trend with our high-street finds (see below)! Of course yours won’t be unique like owning a pair of Vetements, so don’t be surprised or disappointed to see some other savvy shopper wearing the same pair of jeans as you!
