Denim Style Evolution

Denim Style Evolution

0 comments
While the fashion world has created multiple trends across the seasons that we lived and loved on the magazines, there's one thing that will never go out of style and that's - denim.

Irreplaceable and unique, these pieces have been a staple in wardrobe since the born of time, created to withstand hard work. Denim has made an era for themselves and they have extended beyond jeans.

Dungaree
Making a huge comeback this season, the dungarees has definitely made a statement. Loved by the world in the 1970s, this epic denim style is making a revival and exploring some new trends. Embellished with new modernization, ripped dungaree is the perfect slip on for an everyday get-go. Now the truth is, Dungaree could have easily be made out of just any other material, however, due to the stiffness and structured look of Denim, it creates a sleek clean silhouette compared to silk or loose fabric. Heavily popularized by the mainstream media, many artists have been embracing the look and are even adorned by pop star princess - Selena Gomez.

Babydoll dresses
First appeared in the 40s as a nightgown proclaimed to be "the downfall of the corset and the adoption of the brassiere". It was heavily labeled to be female liberation, calling it a defense against conservatism. Later in 2016, Miu Miu released a sheer baby doll negligees layer during the Spring Summer Runway, to which Miu Miu reminded the world once again for the sexual freedom women needed in 1940.

In contrast to the history of Babydoll Dresses, a new preppy Denim Babydoll dress surfaced the world for a different sleek look but still keeping the femininity. Unlike its first illustrations to be flowy and soft, the denim domination takes a different turn for a clean and structured movement with a new approach to the age we live in.

Jacket
Moving into the season of Fall, the perfect time to break out the outerwears and channel your inner fashionista. The denim jacket is an absolute Fall staple for its versatility and light layering.

The new trend of oversized bomber jackets and colossal bulky coats as seen on 2016 Balenciaga Fall Runway, creates a grunge silhouette with no structure. For a feminine and minimal approach, we recommend switching to a nice fitting denim jacket for layering and it's clean and chic design.

A great fitting denim jacket really goes a long way considering its proportion matching the body and how the overall presentation ties in with the outfits perfectly without taking away the attention from the layers beneath it.

Denim On Denim
The beauty of a Denim on Denim look is the confidence and effortless style.
Before delving into shades of double-blue, start out by looking at the palette and mixing 1 extra color to the outfit of twin denim together. By color coding 2 colors - Blue and X. It helps you keep a simple palette that's impossible to go wrong. Channel different shades of light and dark denim together with clean white shoes and small minimal jewelry and voila! Beautiful.

Step out of your comfort zone this Fall and challenge your denim game to create exquisite new looks you never knew hidden back in your closet.
Pro tip, don't match the same shade of denim together for an elevated and multi-dimension vibe. Jeans come in different pattern and textures so have fun!

The Unsaddling truth of Fashion and Horses

The Unsaddling truth of Fashion and Horses

"The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact
with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and freedom."

While the Fashion World has had centuries of antiquity with a series of chronicles trends that we have lived and loved on the runways. This year, Dior's Cruise 2019 show was hit by a rainstorm featuring horse riding alongside the models during the runway.

Inspired, we head on an adventure to visit Gallop Stable, Singapore's horse riding school that is known to give ex-racehorses a second life.

Most of its resident horses are ex-racehorses who came here for a second chance at life. Contrary to popular beliefs, countless young and healthy racehorses, due to their lack of ability or injuries, are retired from racing every year. With no home to go to and not being of any use to their current owners, these horses usually face dire possibilities.

Giving these horses a second chance at life by retraining them for riding activities, bringing joy to all students and riders at Gallop Stable. Horses that are not fit for riding activities due to injuries from racing or have an unsuitable demeanor are also given a home here where they can spend their days out on green pastures, getting cuddles from the staff and riders from the Gallop Family.

Gallop Stable currently runs two stables in Singapore (Horsecity at Bukit Timah and Pasir Ris Park). They offer a variety of horse-related activities such as riding lessons, pony rides and feeding, trail rides, riding camps and workshops, photo and video shoots and even competitions for everyone, young and old to enjoy.
