The denim jacket — or is it jean jacket — is as classic as look as a pair of 501s. They have been borrowed from the boyfriend so much that they became available oversized. They have been shrunken, patched, distressed, tailored and smartened up into a blazer.

Indeed, there is no territory that the denim jacket has not touched…and with new designs release every season, who wouldn’t want to touch them?

EVE and KHAITE gave ’90s minimalism to their jackets and there has been no styles that have had more fun with denim quite like the designs by KSENIA SCHNAIDER, someone who reworks denim into designs that give life to the “reworked” trend.
