Shop The Look:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock during the past couple of years, it’s impossible to miss in countless fashion magazines the name Vetements and its creative director, Demna Gvasalia. Vetements has gone viral and pieces from the label have been worn by celebrities, streetstyle stars, ‘It’ girls, and countless bloggers. According to online publications such as Business of Fashion, the brand and its creative director have initiated a fashion revolution, but I beg to differ. To deny the huge influence and role Gvasalia’s label has played in the fashion industry and in current trends would be just futile, but this is nothing that has not been done before. Streetwear and anti-fashion as high fashion have been done before by labels such as Alexander Wang (‘Explicit Content’, anyone?) and Baja East for several years now. However, there is an inherent badass attitude to the Vetements aesthetic that resonates with youthful spirits and what makes it so attractive. Admittedly, I am no fan of the label nor does most of its clothing resonate with me, as I can’t relate with the postmodern nihilism it stands for.
However, I do like a few pieces and these Vetements jeans have been one of them. I think their fit and the unique hem makes them be an irreplicable piece and the result of out-of-the-box-thinking.
If you are a fan of the label but are wary of jumping on something too trendy, I got a few tips on how to achieve the Vetements effect, i.e. the Vetements look:
- Combine your raw or uneven hem jeans with a long belted trench or bomber jacket with sock ankle boots or sandals.
- Layer a hoodie under your puffer coat or bomber jacket. Extra points if you wear them with over-the-knee boots.
- Wear a floor length coat with your straight jeans, a turtleneck, and sock ankle boots for an elegant, yet effortless look.
- Pair your men’s shirt with extra long sleeves with a leather wrap skirt and thigh high boots.
