We're throwing it back to the 80s and looking at some of our favourite denim moments! Denim doesnt just belong in jean form and its certainly not a one trick pony! We're inspired by the 80s take on denim, not only was there a hell of a lot of it but in the golden age of DIY fashion - it was ripped up, bleached, customized and looked totally rad!
Madonna isn't only the queen of pop but the queen of denim too! She rocked it head to toe with iconic high-waisted mom jean fits and oversized frayed jackets. Steal her look with some of our vintage 80s denim pieces online, or browse our upcycled LABEL collection!
