The latest trend in denim has designers rethinking — and reworking — the past. Scraps from previous seasons get new life in Marques’ Almeida’s modern take on the jean jacket and designer pieces are reimagined by 1/Off to be better than new. A pair of reworked Levi’s are double the fun with the addition of a second waistband, while Chanel and Burberry are among the other labels getting the 1/Off upcycled denim treatment. The best part? These stylishly repurposed items are not only fashion-forward but sustainably-minded.
