Everyone wants to look good. We’re always following the newest and coolest trends in the fashion world, but sometimes even the designers don’t know what they are doing. Two words: ‘thong jeans’.
Even as good old high-waisted mom jeans are having a moment, experimental denim has reached its natural conclusion, which is apparently just a waistband and cuffs with some long flaps billowing in the space between. Oh, and a tiny strip of denim down the centre of your b*tt, of course. Because you gotta leave something to the imagination, right?
While you were busy celebrating a Green Diwali, these so-called jeans, the brainchild of designer Meiko Ban of the Japanese label Thibaut, made headlines for being out-of-the-ordinary. The denim disaster, which the internet has already dubbed ‘jongs’ (get it?), made their debut on the runway last week at the Amazon Fashion Week in Tokyo.
