ICYMI: a takeover of the style of denim is taking place in 2020. Second, it was all over the runways—the houses from Celine to Valentino sprinkled with all the look of the classic fabric. Today, the street culture has actually caught up—and the model styles (Bella Hadid) and the entertainers (Gwen Stefani) gaze at the co-ord in equal measure. The newest It-girl to run the so-called “Canadian Suit” did so with a few classic winter accents, proving her staying power in the colder months. All hail Irina Shayk’s denim dress, which nails the theme with a helping hand from some Manhattan street-style favorites—some of which are already in your wardrobe.
The model was seen in her neighborhood in New York on Dec. 2, wearing a matching set that put a designer spin on the classic denim pieces. After her matte black puffer (a true palette cleanser from last week’s extraverted, cloud-soaked version), Shayk modeled a blue denim jacket and trousers, all of which came from the same range as the above-mentioned printed puffer. From Palace and Moschino’s much-anticipated collab, the denim set indulges logomania to the fullest degree, thus playing with an illusory, eye-tricking microprint. Overall, the set gives the aughts theme (which preferred patchy, frayed co-ords) a contemporary boost—one that fashion enthusiasts are actively telling StockX to snatch right now.
From there, Shayk unveiled some of her favorites— Illesteva’s wiry glasses, combat boots, and the Italian streetwear label GCDS’ tote bag trainer, which closely resembles Louis Vuitton’s Alma silhouette. Overall, the outfit divides the gap between relaxed American flair (through its denim) and classic Manhattanite style (through jet-black outerwear and accessories), providing a fitting blueprint for any non-conformist trend.
If her designer-stamped set is marginally out of budget, Zara’s new season features a host of denim tops, jackets, and jeans that are able to replicate her look. If you’re up to the challenge, browse all the way below, with Aritzia’s famous Super Puff as a real alternative to her suit.
