NOTEWORTHY: RE/DONE DENIM

June 5, 2017

Denim will never go out of style. It is an American staple, and now a high fashion staple. And if there is one takeaway from this piece, it is to NEVER get rid of your denim. Denim styles always make a comeback. Case in point: embroidered denim was the look of 2001, and now its bigger than ever. Even if you tire from an old pair of jeans, revive them with a little restyling (grab your scissors!), because as Re/Done shows us, denim gets better with time like fine wine.

This summer’s cool girl trend is not just denim, but customized, faded or frayed denims. Take it one step chicer with vintage jeans from your mother’s closet, a vintage market or at Re/Done, a luxury denim brand out of Los Angeles. The e-commerce site is setting out to accomplish many things, sustainable fashion being one, but more importantly, keeping heritage brands relevant like the original Levi’s jean. Recently, we have seen the comeback of classic brands like Champion and Esprit. Re/Done is reviving the all-American denim brand of Levi’s by taking pre-loved jeans and breathing new life into them through restoration, alongside their own denim designs.

All vintage denim is handpicked, hand cut, and distinctly one of a kind. Re/Done simplifies finding vintage jeans, by finding collectable denims only you will own.  Styles include the high rise, ankle crop, and “seamed collection”, with multi-colored patchwork denim patterns on skirts, jeans and overalls. With a cult following from the Hadid sisters to the Jenners, Re/Done denims are the only denims we want to live in.
