Popping down the local in Alessandro Michele’s embroidered exotic snakes and florals might be pushing the needle too far for some, but Gucci isn’t the only label dressing denim up this year.
From Off-White’s metalhead printed jeans to Philipp Plein’s embroidered styles worthy of an off-duty Conor McGregor, bells and whistles have gone from off-the-wall to on-trend.
“Big and bold looks are best for denim jackets, while localised placements on jeans are a great way to give five-pocket styles statement appeal,” says Trotman.
Want to try the embroidery trend on for size? There’s never a better time than during the summer months. Though, consider the weight as well as the wash to ensure your bottom half remains more stylish than swampy.
