Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, avant-garde Milanese brand Ring brings us drop-crotch cropped jeans for the summer, as well as two-toned coated jeans which look a bit like denim cutoffs sewn together with another pair of jeans’ legs. Maybe it sounds odd, but to us the spring summer 2011 lookbook looks more like a rebellion against boring, everyday denim.
As progressive as Ring may be, the brand’s minimalist tailoring is quite wearable even for the less adventurous, thanks to the lack of distracting, superficial design. Ring’s Founder Selene Busatta launched Ring Milano in 2004, originally set out to rework classic pieces into avant-garde works of art that is open to interpretation, made individual through one’s own styling choices. We were, of course, also impressed with the men’s and women’s denim, which exhibits deep, three-dimensional whiskering, honeycombing and tasteful additions of “dirty” wash, which stretches the ideals of avant-garde fashion, often seen as zen and clean.
