40 Examples of DIY-Themed Apparel

From Luxe Victorian Vests to Artisanal Patchwork Denim

— September 25, 2019 — Fashion
These DIY-themed apparel picks include luxe Victorian vests and artisanal patchwork denim. While handcrafted fashion has been around for centuries, luxury brands' newfound obsession with vintage craftsmanship has lead to more opulent mainstream styles both on and off the runway.

Though minimalism has been celebrated for many years, luxury fashion labels like Gucci have made opulence and over-the-top glamour a new go-to aesthetic that rejects function and subtlety. This focus on opulence has also lead to the return of ornate detailing in the fashion industry, slowly replacing more casual recent fads like athleisure.

DIY-themed apparel picks to note include Gucci's New York Yankees beanie which boasts colorful and kitschy jewels along with Vetements' jersey detail jeans -- combining track pants and denim to create an unlikely hybrid. Other examples include Mira Mikati's Trompe L’œil trench coat which features scribbled artwork and Maison Margiela's revealing cutout sweater.
