Smartening up

There was a time when the whole point of ripped denim was to come off looking tough, careless, grungy and alternative. But in fashion, all things can have their essence, their very philosophy, realigned. Thus against all contradiction, ripped denim can have a smart, deliberate look that’s still careless but in an effortlessly chic – and not a grungy – way. Like this street style look from Milan.
