Once upon a time, a hardy little fabric called ‘serge’ was created in Nimes, France.
Now known ubiquitously as ‘denim’, it has become one of the most sought-after fabrics in the world because of its sturdiness and long-lasting quality. Fashion’s love affair with denim began long ago and continues to evolve as the fabric takes on new and appealing forms. For Spring/Summer 2013, denim is back on trend and hotter than ever with hip, distressed looks leading the way. We’ve curated 23 of the best distressed jeans in our gallery, so click through to see what styles are making waves on the scene this season.
