In case you weren’t aware that this season’s denim is all about distressing, Cheap Monday has decided to drill the point home. The Swedish brand has hooked up with Faustine Steinmetz, whose ripped and reconstituted denim designs have set the fashion world abuzz over the last few years.
Steinmetz’s approach to denim is at once artistic and architectural, slashing and unstitching the fabric only to rework it in new shapes. And its an approach she’s brought to her eight-piece collaboration with Cheap Monday, each of which is handmade and unisex.
The capsule encompasses everything from denim jackets to jeans and backpacks, all of which play on the idea of what denim means to individuals and society, and what it can be. So even though the shredded shapes are particularly on-trend this season, this is fashion that won’t disappear next time it cycles.
The Cheap Monday x Faustine Steinmetz collection is available at cheapmonday.com now, priced from £90
