You like denim? Check out this piece of art from ZARA’s winter collection!
In 1969 a writer for American Fabrics magazine declared, “Denim is one of the world’s oldest fabrics, yet it remains eternally young.” If continuous use of and interest in an item makes it “eternally young” then denim certainly qualifies. From the 17th century to the present, denim has been woven, used and discarded; made into upholstery, pants and awnings; found in museums, attics, antique stores and archaeological digs; worn as the fabric of hard honest work, and as the expression of angry rebellion; used for the sails of Columbus’ ships in legend; and worn by American cowboys in fact (from A SHORT HISTORY OF DENIM by Lynn Downey).
Indeed it is eternally young. Everyday fashion companies invent new and new combinations with the denim as a protagonist:
Jumpsuit – Zara
Shoes – Zara
Bag – Zara
Sunglasses – Ray Ban
Tights – H&M
But this is no typical clothing – jumpsuit looking like shorts from behind and like a skirt on the other side. And on top of that with all these colorful patches that are so trendy these days.
