Recently, Paper magazine reported on a denim assault committed by Unravel Project, which created a pair of jeans that has no legs and no crotch, and that is definitely not a skirt or a belt – though it resembles a belt. It might even be a bustier ... who knows? And this baby goes for about R4 860.

Fashion insanity! While denim is a wardrobe necessity, it’s not worth trying some weird expensive trend for the cool. Denim isn’t just denim these days.

Once upon a time it was the item you wore to show off a tee or a fancy top, but now it has a life of its own and you dress around it.

This season’s affordable denim dreams are at MRP, which has updated its styles and washes across some of our favourite fits.

Coming through strongly are the lace-up details that will be popular for the next couple of months. Don’t forget to add some colour too.

From different shades of pale yellows to cherry reds, coloured denim is making a return. Keep an eye out for denims between pink and purple and anything of the red variety. Also important to consider in denims this year is the silhouette.

From straight-leg, high-rise and cropped lengths, to forward wide-leg shapes – all these will take centre stage and can be worn from day to night.
