Denim hasn't been exciting in the last few years, taking a backseat as the collective community continued a love affair of skinny jeans, leggings and loungewear as daywear. With more options for dressing up and dressing up, denim that which was once the only way to do both, has lost its early aughts appeal. Does anyone own "designer" jeans, anymore?
Bliss and Mischief, in this sea of denim fatigue, stands out. The Made in America company gives a Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants in the faded desert spin, with their made to order embellished and embroidered pieces featuring floral motifs, peace signs and butterfly wings on authentic vintage Levis 501s.
A welcome and refreshing change to the kinda sorta boring denim landscape, is this the denim world's rejection of the sterile minimalism that we've been experiencing in fashion for one too many seasons? Denim's version of Anya Hindmarch and Pintrill's willingness to play, to personalize, and to customize?
Finally, denim that makes us feel something again. I feel like a kid. Authentic meets nolstagic with a huge dose of all-out fun: fashion's mood of the season. I'm liking it.
