Well, That's Cheeky!
Have you ever felt so angsty that you wanted to channel your inner grunge by wearing a Thrasher t-shirt (even though you’ve definitely never even read a page of that magazine) and throwing on some distressed jeans? Yeah, it’s just SO edgy, but it's not edgy enough anymore! Well, fashion pushes boundaries and I present to you, absolutely no boundaries. It's the next big thing.
Yes, that’s right! These jeans more or less look like your distressed jeans either had existential crises of their own and are now destroyed or you accidentally got into a war with a barbed wire fence and made it out with just enough fabric to pass for a piece that is entirely overall straps and zero percent overalls. No longer do you have to worry about whether your jeans are proper enough for the school dress code or your parent’s approval. These “pants” are everything you’ve ever wanted: wearing pants while not wearing pants. How cheeky!
Thibaut grabbed the spotlight at Amazon Fashion Week in Tokyo with this piece, which adds to my long list of things that confuse me (see Balenciaga’s entire existence lately and all other variations of strange jeans here). Paired with some intentionally dirty sneakers, this outfit caught the attention of Twitter.
I’m an avid no pants person, but that personal philosophy of mine is specifically restricted to the safety of my own room due to societal perceptions on propriety. There’s no way I would want to wear these let alone catch anyone wearing these literal strips of denim.
Maybe I’m just too traditional? Considering the fashion industry nowadays, anything seems to pass.
I have too many questions here. Are you supposed to be wearing spandex with these? What season is this appropriate for? Thibaut, the brand responsible for this … atrocity, reserves it for their SS18 collection. But, really? By the time I can digest this piece, I'll probably see at least one brave soul donning this across the quad. I'm praying that day never comes.
What do you think?
