I’ve been circling around the Acne pop denim lately, the white one as seen on Hanneli. It takes some time getting used to the length, but it feels really fresh right now and nice for warmer weather (good leg ventilation haha …). Finding this particular model hasn’t been easy though, it seems to be sold out everywhere and only exists in the ‘Trash’ and the ‘Kapital’ styles right now, so either torn or a bit dirty looking. Besides the fact that these models are also way more expensive I’ve been having a hard time to decide about getting a distressed denim right now. They were all the rave a couple of seasons ago and seem to have a comeback, or well are still going strong. Of course Jessica Minkoff, Hanne Gaby and Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea look great in them, but I don’t know, maybe having turned 36 I just feel a little too old … what do you think, is distressed still cool and at every age ?
