There is something about denim that will always signify a moment in time, and it is all in the cut of the cloth. Whether it be the 1950’s roll up, the skinny jean, wide leg, cut off shorts, 70’s flare, the denim jacket that you had at the age of 18 (and held onto in the vain hope of rekindling your relationship with it, once more); the classic Levis 501—a 90’s throwback that has become an iteration of itself in its vintage—or newly framed, more distressed form.
Denim is both forgiving, and unforgiving. Unforgiving when you haven’t found the right match. But when you do, a new friendship is born.
Your denim has a fortitude that can perpetuate a renewal of faith in home grown values and a belief in longevity; a means of holding on to moments or stories, transferring from your hands to that of another in a different time and place, if you dare to let go.
Whether your denim fills you with nostalgia, or propels you into the unknown (with your newly bespangled sequined numbers, or multi-embroidered patches of strawberries or dogs), or your adventurous off-the-wall denim persona has sent you in search of the mega combo—sequined legs and tasseled fringing anyone?
What remains constant is the sturdiness and reliability of denim as ‘the fabric of the people.’ Denim will forever necessitate an irrefutable ease, allowing you to fulfill your pursuit of individuality, or remain at one with your fellow man, ensuring that wherever you are and whatever you do, you will always be ‘in the moment.’
