There are no shortage of people out there who’ll tell you they’re sick of seeing the oft-disastrous outcomes of ill-fitting jeans. Vintage revival styles are one answer, especially where high waists demand coverage of areas other styles may not.
Benetton have cleverly created some jeans that not only play to the higher waisted cut, but that also tie in neatly with trends like 1950s fashion. They’re jeans that pay homage to the pin up and their marketing pitch is that they’re snug in such a way that enhances the body’s curves.
The range has two styles: Pin Up Shape and Pin Up Lift. The ‘lift’ style has “carefully designed heart shaped back yoke, engineered darts, double thin twins stitches and perfectly proportioned back pockets give your behind a magic lift and lengthen your legs by a few centimeters.”
Of the ‘shape’ style, which has a slight vintage flare: “Only you know that it is the secret slenderizing panel in the front of the jeans and the side zip closure that is holding you in, creating a sexy and sophisticated silhouette.”
We can’t yet say what they’re like in person but the concept and design are timely and clever.
