Although you may find yourself constantly saying, “No, it’s meant to be like that”, raw-edged denim is having a serious fashion moment. Torn, ripped or shredded, whichever way you play it, as long as it's frayed, it’s a signpost for cool. Inspo comes straight from London Fashion Week darlings Marques’Almeida, who started the whole idea: chances are if you see an indigo denim distressed anything, it'll be by them (FYI, these guys are collab-ing with Topshop in October, so you'll be able to get your hands on some at a non-designer price). M'A count Rihanna, Rita Ora and Cassie as IRL lovers of their aesthetic. So whether you’ve already invested in a pre-hacked piece or you're heading off to butcher your old jeans with a pair of scissors and a cheese grater, read below for a masterclass in how to pull off this look for all occasions.
