My adoration for Swedish brands continues with Cheap Monday, one of my favorites.
Named for the poorest day of the week (cause you’ve blown all your money on weekend good times), Cheap Monday jeans are the perfect skintight fit done dirt cheap. All I can say is that I have been a denim lover for a long long time and when I first tried on Cheap Monday jeans, I loved the way they were second skin snug, but very comfortable, a bit high-waisted to suck in all the excess stomach that sometimes would spill over (AKA “muffin top”), and looked great with both heels and sneakers. Cheap Mondays also look great under dresses and long tops as an alternative to leggings.
The best thing of all is the price tag! At a mere $65 a pop, in comparison to let’s say my Citizens of Humanity or J Brand jeans costing more than $200, who can beat that value? It’s a real bang for your buck. I bought two pairs right away, one in black and the other in cream that goes with everything.
Their current SS/08 line has a huge array of washes, colors, patterns and fits, both in skinny and baggier styles. I am digging the pin striped jeans and Dada overalls.
The AW 08 “Beastmaster” theme continues to show their growth as a major player in the fashion world. The campaign photos were shot in the woods outside Rimba, a small town outside of Stockholm known for inbreeding and religious fanatics. How, uh, eccentric. The collection is chock full of baggier fitting jeans (told ya so — listen to the Denim Diva and get ’em early!). There’s also an extensive apparel line including vintage, children’s, accessories, and a dressier line called Kostym. Go to Cheap Monday’s site to see the full line. Buy Cheap Mondays at Urban Outfitters, Tobi,Revolve, and Karmaloop.
