With more cuts and colors than Rihanna’s coif, denim has taken aim on the high-fashion runways and hit the bull’s-eye with this season’s round of must-haves. Although the bell-bottom has made perhaps the biggest comeback, it’s not alone when it comes to fashion’s latest standouts. Designer brands like Tom Ford and Marques’Almeida showcased denim from head to toe; patchwork was all the rage at See by Chloé and Jeremy Scott; and Vetements left vintage-lovers drooling with its stop-in-your-tracks collection of upcycled jeans. Thanks to the runway stamp of approval, this classic workwear staple has officially made its move uptown.
