Kingpins Trend Report: Post-Denim

Heritage, but high-fashion. Workwear detailing evolved from its core roots in ‘40s workwear, through into a more streetwear-driven aesthetic last season before finally being claimed by the runway for F/W 2018. This has led to exaggerated silhouettes, offbeat proportions, manipulated seam detailing and a collection of re-engineered classic jeanswear items.
