Part cu­lotte, part jean, 2017’s most talked-about denim trend is def­i­nitely an opin­ion di­vider…

De­sign­ers have sure got their work cut out for them these days. As fash­ions be­come in­creas­ingly faster, our wardrobe pur­vey­ors go head-to-head to con­jure up new trends to fuel the shop­ping cir­cle of life. Which means we see wack­ier pieces reach peak style sta­tus (Vete­ments’ DHL tee be­ing a prime ex­am­ple).

Ac­tu­ally, it’s hard not to think that we’re on the re­ceiv­ing end of some Tru­man Show-style con­spir­acy – an in­side joke we’re not privy to – schemed to see what the style set will dare to wear next. Now, it’s a piece we’ve af­fec­tion­ately chris­tened the ‘culean’.

The brain­child of Ukrainian de­signer Kse­nia Sch­naider, her slashed-at-theknee jeans – which boast a vo­lu­mised, cu­lotte thigh off­set with a ta­pered calf – have been a firm fix­ture on the Fash­ion Month cir­cuit. The big ques­tion is: will you fol­low suit?
