Rihanna was spotted on a night out, clad in a totally rockin’ double denim outfit. Her off-the-shoulder denim jacket is by Balenciaga, and it is really unique. It’s not just any denim jacket, but it’s cut so that when it’s worn, it falls off the shoulders.
While this exact runway piece isn’t available yet, you can buy a classic version and perhaps just push it off your shoulders, or have a seamstress cut and re-make it. And talking about re-making….Rihanna’s denim skirt is a Vetements vintage-style skirt, in the same medium blue wash as the jacket, and we love this “perfect match”!
Rihanna completed her outfit with a pair of – also Balenciaga – very interesting mirror boots.
Just on a note: Balenciaga is now headed by avant garde signer Demna Gvasalia, who started Margiela-esque brand Vetements. All these names evoke a sense of sculptural tailoring and a dedication to pushing the shape and function of clothing.
So we reckon it’s time to update your denim jacket for the new season. Buy one on a budget like the Daisy Street at ASOS, or check out these at Topshop and Urban Outfitters, and have it altered to look like RiRi’s.
