When it comes to new legwear, there aren’t many better feelings than putting on a new pair of jeans that you can entrust to wear alongside you — a pair that builds character with each use. However, under current quarantine conditions, it’s a feeling many of us might not have experienced recently. These circumstances will inevitably change, though, and we’re looking ahead to pieces that we’ll be wearing once they do. And we’re turning our attention to SS20 denim.
In particular, it’s the turn of luxury denim to hold our attention this time. London-based destination MATCHESFASHION has the latest goods from a list of our most beloved brands, including Jacquemus, Martine Rose, Loewe, and Rick Owens. We’ve picked out 10 pairs below to get you started.
Welcome denim back into your life and shop our favorite SS20 jeans.
On the less experimental side of the list, YMC’s pair deliver a clean denim choice that can’t really be beaten when it comes to simple summer styling.
On a similar note, minimal perfector Acne Studios adds a monochrome option for all rotations. Now onto the more avant-garde…
If you’ve spent your quarantine so far in a pair of denims, they may well look like this pair by Martine Rose right now. The crinkle-effect denim marries ’90s aesthetics with modern streetwear.
Jacquemus’ Spring/Summer 2020 show took place in the french countryside — Province to be exact. This pair of jeans from that very collection appears to have brought a bit of Province’s flora with them, coming with embroidered lavender details.
Virgil Abloh cited legendary graffiti artist Futura as a key influence on his SS20 Off-White™ output. Continuing the rebellious use of paint, these carpenter jeans are dressed in splashes of the stuff.
Gone are the days when variation in jeans was limited to color alone. This piece by Our Legacy comes stitched with lightning-style motifs. What next.
As mentioned, colors were indeed once the only choice to make when copping a new pair of denims, and now look what we’ve got. Maverick Rick Owens serves up a collaged pair of trousers that offer something for everyone.
These “Fisherman” jeans by Loewe are certainly not built for wading through water. But they are appropriate for adding to a refreshed wardrobe for post-quarantine nights out.
Surprisingly, Berlin’s club culture-influenced GmbH’s offering is one of the most conservative pairs on our list. The white cotton denim is contrasted well with exposed hardware, including a visible-to-all zipper.
What’s that mad effect, you ask? That’s a result of a lacquer-pressed finish, which finishes off this grey denim with a seldom-seen aesthetic.
Now to an all-out wild one. Our second option from Our Legacy, these are almost acid trip flashback-inducing. Perfect for making an entrance back into the outside world.
