We have chosen to feature the Fiorucci Billy Wide-Leg jeans because, first off, Fiorucci is one of the old-timers. Popular in the 70’s and 80’s, and more or less dragging into the 90’s, the brand had somehow lost its focus and literally disappeared.
About two years ago, Fiorucci emerged again, bringing back all their former re-worked and classic denim styles, modernized, of course. Let’s say a re-born vintage brand.
Wide leg jeans, raw denim, and vintage. These are the (denim) keywords we keep hearing and seeing all the time lately.
And wide leg in the true sense of long, even a bit too long inseams, and not cropped or with an unfinished frayed hem. We’re going back to the “origins” made in a modern style. The classic denim style in the beginning was shapeless and made purely to function. For example, no woman would have gone out on a date night in a pair of dungarees – how they were called then.
While at first, the women’s jeans were simply baggy and held together with any belt just to keep them up, today we have form fitting and boy-enhancing styles.
These Fiorucci wide leg jeans are perfect for any kind of occasion, depending on how you style them, mainly, what kind of shoes you pair them with.
Made of raw, dark blue stretch denim, these wide legs are a good way out if you don’t want to go the rigid denim way. Many brands this season are offering more or less the same style but in a heavier weight and totally rigid denim.
And if you prefer this style, but in a lighter wash, the same jeans also come in a light blue (see images below).
