Serge de Nîmes
Denim or as the French like to say serge de Nîmes(Fabric from Nimes)has been around a heck of a long time and recently has found its way back into my heart.Sitting down I think of how I can articulate my feelings to paper and as I slowly mouth the word Denim my imagination arrives at the destination, a timeless 90s fashion gallery.Carefully I sift my way through the many images that I will use.From inspiration will come aspiration.The effort will afford me the greatest pleasure whilst creating my Denim look for the winter of 2017.
We should all be very familiar with Denim by now. As it is a cornerstone of any fashionistas wardrobe.Its hard to believe its popularity exploded from a rivet reinforced work pant,designed for the working class man in 1873.Since then it has made an evolutionary metamorphosis,with many styles and patterns from stonewashed stretch and Raw form to name a few.
I grew up as a Gen-X,the best generation if you ask me.And during this time I was spoiled with the large amount of pop culture influences which wore Denim such as Kurt Cobain of Nirvana and Layne Staley from Alice in Chains.
This was not only a time of teen angst it was an aggressive rebellion against the fashion establishment,embracing the grit and the grime of the times.With the RAW emotion from society’s underbelly, living art. It was an underground movement that would wake up a sleeping world making a lasting impression forever.Yes these were the times that Denim stood out for me, fragments from my past I’ll fondly remember.
I have chosen to rock out a grungy ninety’s vibe.Ripped jeans with Frayed hems accompanied with a Blush Pink Suede Biker Jacket and Black chunky boots.Both Jacket and Jeans can be worn separately or together interchanging your footwear from Heavy Boot look to a soft Summer Embroidered Bee Sneaker. Base your decision on the weather and how you feel.I try to stay honest to the Twill Weave and tease the appearance with the less busy adornments such as Sculptural gold earrings and a Mesh choker.
As you can tell from my shoot its no holds bared and I readily find myself in lust with the sleek tight fitting jeans with frayed hems.They are now my go to Denim when ever I’m in a pinch.
Choosing a bag to match this 90’s ensemble is a breeze ,merely reaching out for the staple choice.Favoring a classic black handbag ,as the minimalism only adds to the powerful look.
