We've seen a lot of “what's old is new again” trends in fashion making headlines again this year. First bootcut jeans were hailed as having their own major fashion resurgence much to the dismay of just about everyone on social media. Then, those low-rise jeans that we all used to wear long before we had kids started to make a comeback, and moms everywhere declared they would not, under any circumstances, embrace the low rise jean trend ever again.
While these fashion trends may leave us shaking our heads, wondering who on earth thought low rise, boot cut jeans was a good idea when we have perfectly comfortable high-waisted jeggings we can wear when we want to ditch the yoga pants, this latest trend in denim fashion will have you leave you shaking your heads, wondering how fashion can sometimes get things so, so wrong.
Fashion house Ksenia Schnaider has recently introduced a new style of jeans they call "asymmetrical jeans" that seems to be what one wears when they can't decide on going for a skinny jean look or wide leg jean look. Ksenia Schaider has decided to help by creating a pair of jeans that feature both.
Yes, that's a pair of jeans with one skinny leg and one wide leg, and no, we don't know anyone that's not a supermodel who can pull this look off (and even that's a stretch.)
While you may be confused by the style and design of these jeans, the price point may confuse you even more. Ksenia Schnaider has the jeans listed as available for preorder on their site for $375! That's a hefty price tag for a pair of jeans, but the site does ask for measurements when you preorder so at least you know they'll be made to fit you perfectly.
Designer Ksenia Schnaider, who along with her partner Anton Schnaider explained to Vogue what made her decide to make such a radically different looking jean. “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!” The designer says she has only worn her new creation in her studio but says they are definitely getting some attention. “The jeans can surprise and make people smile,” she said.
If you're wondering what you would wear with a pair of asymmetrical jeans, Schnaider suggests she pairs hers with loafers, heels and sweaters, adding, “They are crazy enough, so I think other items should be all-time classics.” I think I'd rather wear a pair of low rise jeans again.
