Here's a review for Current/Elliot jeans.
Emily Current and Meritt Elliot are both LA- based stylists. They have decided to create their own denim brand in 2008. They wanted to create a pair that will hug every curve in a woman's body, and a pair that will definitely show them off. Their love for vintage and relaxed styles have enabled them to create the currently a- lister brand, Current/Elliot.
Though still a newbie in the jeans industry, it is no doubt that Current/Elliot has risen to popularity like the speed of light since its inception. Blame it on their butter- soft jeans, perfect fit and unique vintage styles.
The Boyfriend jeans, which is the hottest trend among Hollywood people nowadays was first made by C/E. It has a relaxed yet sexy fit. And the casual and cool look has made the boyfriend jeans fashionable altogether.
Here are some C/E fanatics from Hollywood.
Sarah Jessica Parker, aka Carrie Bradshaw, will always be fashionably updated. SJP is photographed by a paparazzi in her C/E boyfriend jeans while strutting down the streets of NY.
Current/Elliot's The Skinny's fit is divine. As you can see, it perfectly hugged my legs and showed off its form without looking too tight. My problem with some jeans is, some jeans start to curl on the knee to the bottom parts. And this one went on sleek and smooth.
The paint splatter added a nice detail on the jeans. I am a fan of Jackson Pollock and anything that reminds me of JP, I will buy. The Skinny is meant to sit low on the waist. So if you're not wearing the right underwear, this jeans can be a butt crack hazard.
At first wear, this pair can be a bit stiff. But while wearing it, the jeans starts to adapt to your body size, which makes it comfortable to wear later on. Just like 7 for all mankind.
The jeans clings on to your legs, whilst still providing comfort. It's not like those duct tape skinnies that are being sold in the market nowadays.
And the texture of the denim is indeed butter- soft to touch. It's as if the pair has been soaked in fabric conditioner for a long time and voila! Out comes a pair of jeans that feels like slacks.
The material of the jeans is also thin, which makes every pair a breathable one.
The rips and tears gave the jeans a vintage vibe. The tears are meant to be ripped further due to wear. But it doesn't affect the overall of the jeans. In fact, I think it makes it more unique and vintage! Although the cracking and popping threads make me shriek sometimes because it would feel too bad to destroy a $216 jeans, and there's no one to blame but yourself.
I would love to own another C/E pair. But I'd also love to try other brands as well. J Brand or Earnest Sewn is on my wish list. :)
