Patchwork Prioritization

Designers reclaim retro patchwork denim as contemporary statement wear

Implications - As tastemakers channel the spirit of the 1970s by revisiting patchwork denim, consumers are making the most of the style in the form of statement pieces suited to be paired with more simplistic wardrobe staples. This shift highlights the departure from an industry moment of function-first denim simplicity with uses of denim that feel more individualized, which can be seen as a reaction to the laid back fashions in the wake of the athleisure craze.

Workshop Question - How can you elevate former wardrobe staples in order to overcome athleisure fashion malaise?
