Denim has long served as a canvas for artwork, but recently it has catapulted into popularity with designers presenting painted denim in recent collections. Brands such as Qasimi, Liam Hodges, Emporio Armani, Christian Siriano and Alberta Ferretti have all featured creative dye effects using denim as their backdrop.

The trend was further underscored this year as home-bound consumers looked to creative DIY projects involving paint, bleach and old jeans.

But for those not brave enough to try their hand at some of these viral trends, there are plenty of styles on the market created with an expert touch. Rivet rounded up some of the top painted denim looks for men and women.


Bandier

From the front, these Bandier jeans appear to be standard cropped straight legs. But turn around, and a color-block pattern adorns the length from back pocket to cuff.
