He was the designer who made the plumber’s crack fashionable with his perilously low-cut jeans, a move which consequently spawned the resulting term, “muffin top”. Is the memory creeping back now? Yeah, it was him. Got a skull-imprinted clutch handbag or scarf lying around in your not-yet-Konmari’d-but-I’m-gonna-do-it-I-swear closet? McQueen. Or that timeless pencil skirt and gorgeous prints that seem to flawlessly work forever? That was Alexander McQueen as well.

HISTORY OF DENIM

HISTORY OF DENIM

Let’s be clear here. Blue jeans are the clothing item; denim is the fabric they’re made from. The two, however, are so inextricably linked that you’d be doing them both a disservice to discuss one without the other.
