No historian could have seen this coming but it seems as though we’ve officially entered The Great Jeans Apocalypse in the year 2017.
Unexpected denim trends like uneven hemlines, frayed culottes and even the return of the denim mini skirt ruled the street style scene last year, but now we’re starting to enter some questionable territory.
Just last month, the internet completely lost it over a pair of Topshop jeans with clear plastic knee panels and not long before that, one of our favorite denim brands, Re/Done, introduced the “High-Rise Ass Rip Jeans,”which featured a ripped slit under the right butt cheek. Now, Vetements is here to one-up the rest with a pair of jeans that truly takes denim to a new level.
The French fashion brand took to Instagram to share a cheeky (terrible pun intended) sneak-peek at its newest pair of denim, a collaboration with Levi’s, and they’re definitely…innovative. The #VetementsxLevis jeans not only feature zippers down the backs of the legs, but also a zipper right smack down the center of the butt.
I’m pretty sure that when Levi Strauss invented jeans in 1873, he didn’t see this one coming.
