Not sure if you want your jeans to be fit or flare? Do you want to wear mom jeans but want people to think you’re still a cool mom? Do you have to be in the 1970s at 5 but the 1990s at 8? Then asymmetric jeans are apparently the new denim trend that you need and didn’t ask for.
Just when we thought that our exploration into denim fashion was at an end, husband and wife team behind the brand Ksenia Schnaider proved us wrong. Enter the slim leg and wide leg, a high-waisted style that has gone viral. The asymmetric jeans are following the Ukrainian duos other viral fashion success, the demi-jean, which is a take on jorts over jeans mash-up.
To be fair, fashion trends change very quickly. One minute skinny jeans are on trend and the next bootcut jeans are hot which leaves many wondering, "Am I on trend or not?" So, the Schnaider team made the decision easy for us and combined the styles. Why not? Clearly, if you can’t decide, why not wear both – at the same time.
Seems that when it comes to new styles for denim, Ksenia Schnaider is here to break the internet. And with the new asymmetric jeans gaining high interest from people around the world, they may already have more ideas for a new bizarre way to wear jeans we may not be here for but we want to see it.
Ksenia Schnaider is a fashion brand out of Ukraine that creates fashion that’s insanely unnecessary, and quite interesting.
They’ve already had viral success with a previous denim design called the demi-denim.
Ksenia Schnaider is obsessed with denim and recreating the fabric for new fashion looks.She told i-D that this is rooted in the Soviet Union’s jean revolution, as jeans had a cult-like status that made them a luxury to wear when she was growing up.
Naturally, Ksenia and her husband who's also into creating fashion looks for “no reason" wanted to create another bold, and maybe, stylish statement.The way they manipulate the fabric is coo but is it wearable? And now I feel like I sound like a judge on Project Runway.
Ksenia came up with the asymmetrical jeans idea with the thought that it could become a new trend.Her husband Ashton didn’t think so but he went with it anyway.
“It was my old idea to combine our two best-selling models, but Anton said that it is too crazy and no one needs jeans like this," she explains.A good point, it’s not needed so why make it?
Ksenia initially abandoned the idea of the asymmetrical jeans but then made them because she thought if there is one person in the world that did need these jeans, it was her.We’re all just here to enjoy, and maybe wear, Ksenias creations.
Since sharing the asymmetrical design on their Instagram page, the design duo has been flooded with interest.And it has made quite the conversation starter.
You either get it or you don’t. Or you just want to share the news about them on social media.
The design is part of their Pre-Fall 2019 lineup.
The asymmetrical jeans are retailing for $375.
The creative couple hopes to put Ukraine on the map for the fashion world.So far, they are definitely turning heads.
If you’re still asking yourself “why?" You are not alone. People of social media had things to say about the new asymmetrical jeans.
For this person and many of us, our first reaction was to laugh.
Well, I don't need a TED Talk to know this.
But thanks for letting us know.
