D.I.Y Trend: Bleach the Crap out of Your Denim!

In I want... on November 7, 2011 at 2:51 pm

Bleach. Most of the time we’re afraid of the stuff. But now thanks to Dries Van Noten’s recent inspiration (below left), we can dunk our jeans like a big old donut into that bucket of bleach and voila; a new life for those old jeans you didn’t know what to do with.

There’s something about the white with the denim that feels oh so pure and simple…

Yep that’s right….

Bucket + Bleach + Dunking = New Trend.

The Girl with the Sunglasses

Meet Giorgina Tordini. She’s ridiculously beautiful, stylish, bla bla bla.

Okay, I’ll give it to her– she’s a finely crafted specimen of It girl.

You might also be thinking… From where oh where are those sunglasses she’s pimping?

New brand on the scene, Illestreva, with a celebrity following that could fill a bus (Gaga, Chung, Bosworth, Beyonce etc) are handmade in France with materials such as bamboo, wood, titanium and natural buffalo horn.

So When Can I Dress like Zorro’s Girlfriend and Not look like a Complete Tool?

All I want in life is to look like one of these magical Mexican bad ass heroines that fashion editorials keep drawing inspiration from. Okay, maybe it’s not my main priority in life but damnit I want one of those Zorro hats and I want one now!

Only problem is…where the hell do you wear an outfit like this?
