Last week’s blog described the origins of blue denim jeans. Now, let’s take a closer look and see what’s involved in the various types of jeans being offered.
Basically, jeans for women can be described according to their cut, fit, rise and wash.
Many of us choose a style that we’re comfortable with and stay with it, while others like to try new looks when the mood strikes. One thing remains constant and that’s the description, “blue denim jeans”. However within this framework, trends in jeans can shift and change.
A PIONEER MISSES In Fast Company, April 2015, Art Peck, the CEO of GAP, Inc., had this to say, “The trend right now is destructive and destroyed denim. Our washes are clean. Obviously, we missed this trend.” The Gap has recently lost considerable business, but Peck aims to make the chain relevant again by decreasing the number of stores and bringing in new talent.
In last week’s blog, we illustrated the age span of the blue denim jeans wearer by citing a 93-year-old and a 2-year-old. That’s a remarkable 91 years! Now let’s take a look at someone in the center of this group as far as age is concerned.
AMY SEDARIS, 53, author/comedian has this hilarious commentary about her jeans when interviewed for an article in Bazaar, April 2015.
“I’ve worn the same three pairs of jeans since 1999. The designer, Todd Oldham gave them to me. They used to be his so they’re all tattered. I just get them stitched up over and over. There’s more patch now than jean. A friend took them apart and applied fresh denim underneath so now it’s old jeans on top of new.”
GOING FORWARD The world of denim is exploding and currently gives the wearer lots of options. Below, we’ve teamed blue denim with Adea. Let’s explore:
