We all have those items in our closet that we unintentionally forget about until one day, you finally acknowledge its existence. In this case, we have a pair of jeans that I somehow convinced myself and everyone else around me at the time that if I didn’t get my hands on them I would die. Luckily, I didn’t die but the urgency I once had for them wasn’t so urgent after all. I have surprisingly learned to live without them after almost forgetting that they even existed. Where I’m going with this is, you anticipate something and once you have it, you’re already thinking about what it is that you want next.
It dawned on me during fashion week while I was working with the Diesel Black Gold pre-collection team; when model Hanne Gaby walked in wearing the Theyskens’ Theory Resort 2013 oversized deconstructed denim jeans. Long story short, feeling inspired to say the least; I finally took these reversed denim jeans for a spin. They’re a reissued piece from the H&M x Margiela archive, and definitely embody a classic oversize silhouette and deconstructed styling. This time around I took the minimal approach. Pairing wearable separates that were relatable, but still asserted the uniqueness in each piece, and tastefully showing a sliver of stomach underneath it all. This fall, let’s just say these jeans and I are going to get to know each other really well.
