FLARES

Thank God the flare, that most elegant of trouser shapes, hasn’t fallen foul to fashion’s 20 year rule. To wait till 2026 to rock a denim flare would have been a travesty. Thanks to Chloe’s elegant high waisted wide legged trousers on the SS11 catwalks that signalled the arrival of the 70’s trend it was only a matter of time before we started seeing denim flares cropping up in the pre-collections. Look to the new and eclectically retro denim collection – Mother Denim, embracing 70’s styling with flares and full A-line denim skirts fashioned in cashmere soft denim.
