Rivet readers are eager to find out what’s next in denim fashion.
The most-read articles of 2022 focused on what designers were sending down the runway for 2023 and how it was influencing consumers’ immediate purchases. Miu Miu’s miniskirts and MSGM’s cargo pants posed as alternatives to jeans, while bright orange, fringe and bondage-inspired trends underscored consumers’ desire to stand out in a crowd.
Readers were intrigued by pop culture’s power in fashion. From Gen Z’s nostalgic look back at actress Pamala Anderson’s Y2K style to country music’s glitz and glamour, some of the most popular articles dissected how these influences went viral in 2022.
The efforts that denim brands put forth to capture consumers’ attention and dollars in 2022 were also under the microscope. Mass retailers touted one-size-fits-many jeans as a solution for everything from body changes and extending the life of jeans to cutting down on online returns. Others presented ’90s-inspired collections with a French-girl twist. And before it was named Lyst’s “logo of the year,” readers caught up with how Diesel revamped its branding, designs and retail experiences.
