Forget what you know about denim. For spring/summer 2015, designers shredded the rulebook, reworking the traditional workwear fabric into sharp tailoring, smart shirtdresses and military-infused jackets.
Lavish detailing like the crystal embellishment at Dolce & Gabbana or the ethnic embroidery at Etro, elevates it to new levels of luxury, while Chloe, Gucci, Tod’s and Stella McCartney kept double denim in the spotlight.

The decade to reference here is the Seventies, a trend that will still be running strong next season. Invest in flares in mid-blue denim or cropped wide-leg styles to wear with peasanty blouses or matching denim jackets. On cooler days, team with suede or shearling for a look that will carry you straight through to autumn.
