I know. I have no right to write about fashion. We’ve already established this. But I couldn’t help myself. This is just ridiculous. In fairness to Sweden this is more Brazilian fashion. Or at least designed by a Brazilian. In fact, the article (if you can call it that) doesn’t even mention Sweden, just that these are expected to be very popular in the UK when they are released this summer. The only reason is that I ran across it in the venerable evening paper Aftonbladet.
And what is this newest fashion trend you might ask? Something that could change the world obviously.
Jeans with built in underwear.
In an attempt to meet the needs of young women everywhere jeans are now being produced with underwear attached to them. Of course, these needs probably shouldn’t be described as needs seeing as how they are simply low cut jeans. So low that the only solution was to design them with underwear attached.
The idea is that by attaching the underwear the jeans won’t fall down. Because apparently as the jeans ended up with a more pronounced low cut they were falling off. Of course, the question is whether the people who wear this kinds of jeans don’t, at least subconsciously, want their jeans to come off at some point while wearing them.
I don’t have any idea if these will make their way to Sweden. I haven't seen them in Stockholm yet. And I can only hope that I won't. I’d like to think Sweden is classier than that.
I don’t have any idea if these really will become popular in London either. I can only hope not. I’d like to think that the UK isn’t as un-classy as people try to make them out to be. But I could be wrong.
