I’ve been noticing for some time now that the young, hip, Londoner crowd is mad for stone washed denim. Every fashionista from Agnyness Deyn to Alexa Chung seems to revere this rinse. It comes in jumpers, jackets, pants, leggings, shorts, corsets, and tops; and they wear it all. All you need to do is hop on to topshop.com to see the chicest and most wanted high street offerings.
I’d like to pen a telegram to these eighties denim loving babies:
Trainspotting came out thirteen years ago. stop. yes it’s the most important contribution the UK has ever made to youth culture. stop. but it’s time to get over it and move on. stop. there’s more to fashion than imitating a desperate heroin addict and his friends’ poverty stricken attire. stop.
