DENIM DIARY: ROLLA'S
Is denim back or did it never really leave?
I'm hoping its a combination of both, because here at Hatrik, we're known for, well...denim. And because of this, it's time to introduce you to our newest love-child, THE DENIM DIARIES. It was born from the question I get asked regularly, "what made Hatrik where it is today?" forcing the same answer every single goddam time..
"A $28,000 Gucci jacket in the window of their 5th Ave store." It wasn't only love at first sight, but the imagery that came from Alessandro Michelle's runway collection that year gave me more inspiration than my Tumblr page to date. From my first attempt at embellishing my younger sister's denim jacket to where we are now, it's a pinch me moment that can't be tailored with a chain stitch machine.
And hence, welcome to the first edition of our...
We kept it simple and we're back to basics, in a straight leg baby blue pair of ROLLA'S jeans. The only detail, a subtle fold over on each leg and my sister's Seven Heavens t-shirt tucked in. The brand is known for their grunge-inspired muse's and pastel cord flares, but with lack of exact dates, we're putting our bets on the mid-naughties as the best stimulus. And let's not forget about the Sherpa dark-blue jacket (I took poolside earlier this week- look below). I don't have many fangirl moments with anything mid-tone, unless you're stepping out of a Calvin Klein billboard its hard to rock- and i'm thanking ROLLA'S for making it for the top department.
The best thing about a baby blue denim straight leg: you're not breaking the bank with every purchase, instead its tender loving care and some quality time. Both of which you can't buy. When it comes to a good pair, i'm a sucker for love, truly devoted to wearing them when their half a size too small, so that after a few bend and snaps they're made for me. If there was ever a tip: buy a size smaller and go for a run.
