While planning Cosmo’s denim issue – our June issue – thought it would be suitable to dabble in denim myself.
Oh, how I love the new season’s denim details and trends.
Here, I wear two of them:
#1 Embroidered Denim – I purchased these jeans in Barcelona last year and simultaneously popped both my ‘mom jeans’ and ’embroidered jeans’ “cherry”. I still feel weird wearing them without heels due to their mom silhouette but who cares about flats when you have these deep burgundy velvet heels.
#2 Patchwork Denim – Towards the end of last year I was invited to customise a Levis trucker denim jacket by using their new Tailor Shop service at the V&A Waterfront. It’s pretty damn cool – you can take any of your denims to the store and, with help of their resident ‘tailor’, customise them using badges, studs, rip effects and more.
‘Ready’ tee and velvet heels – Mango
Trucker denim jacket (worn at end) – Levis
Nerd glasses – MRP *Buy cute ones here.
I’m excited to be attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town next week! Stay posted for more.
