Uncommon Denim: It’s a Denim, Denim World


I love the new generation of denim, updated with high-tech treatments to give good old cotton denim a serious facelift. The fabric Levi Strauss pioneered for gold diggers (the kind that actually dug for gold in the ground, not the cleavage-baring, skin-tight jeans-sporting crowd) is known primarily as a casual Snob favorite. But if today’s designers have their way, that reputation will be quite different in the future. From long, flared skirts to bustiers, denim knows no sartorial bounds, and here are just a few pieces to show you why that’s such a great evolution…
