Today in confusing pant trends: asymmetrical jeans.
Ukrainian designer Ksenia Schnaider, known for her unconventional denim creations, has released what could be the most bizarre pant trend yet. Her asymmetrical jeans, which retail for a cool $377, feature one wide leg and one straight. The result? A head-turning look, to say the least.
The release follows a string of similarly out-there jean trends as of late: the "extreme cut-out" jeans released in 2018 by Carmar, the double-denim look from Yajun, and this denim pants/shorts hybrid made famous by supermodel Bella Hadid.
So, how did Schnaider even come up with this idea? The designer told Vogue that the creation was a lovechild of her two best-selling designs, the wide-leg and the high-waisted mom jeans. A logical move, if nothing else.
“My partner, Anton Schnaider, said that it was too crazy and no one needs jeans like this, so I abandoned this idea for a couple of seasons,” she said. “But a few months ago, I realized that at least one person needs such jeans—me!”
But it's not all for selfish reasons: “The jeans can surprise and make people smile,” Schnaider added. There's no denying the shock factor of these pants, though it's difficult to imagine the average person rocking them in line at Starbucks or around the office. It would certainly take a level of confidence only fashion influencers have.
