THE JEAN GENIE
Citizens of Humanity nails new season denim
Report by Thea Lewis-Yates
It’s fair to say Citizens of Humanity’s founder Jerome Dahan and Creative Director Catherine Ryu are obsessed with denim. It’s an addiction which serves their loyal fans well; they deliver both considered, modern classics and directional styles to catapult us into the next season. Which brings me to their new Drew Flounce style: jeans so good, they bring Friday optimism to the most miserable Monday. High-waisted for leg-lengthening trickery, black for slimming and general all-round chic-ness, and the pièce de résistance? A kick-ass kick-flare that sums up the season’s obsession with frills. No longer just for debutante dresses, ruffles add a subversive femininity when juxtaposed with boyish elements. Spliced into blazers at Ellery, cascading down oversized shirting at Jacquemus and our case in point here, serving up a major jean-genius on this winning style from Citizens of Humanity. Accessorise with a silver heel and a spring in your step: I dare you not to dance!
