How short should your shorts be? If your legs are built—or you've worked your ass off—like Milo Ventimiglia's, anything up to mid-thigh-grazing levels is fair game. But even if you've been skipping leg days, who cares—you do you, man.
If we've learnt anything from the recently revealed spring/summer 2022 collections, it's that the season of the thigh is nigh. Saint Laurent is getting a head start with its latest denim collection. Fronted by Romeo Beckham (proof that model-esque good looks are genetic) and Hailey Bieber, the collection consists of a series of denim pieces that have been purposefully worn-out and distressed.
Denim jackets are haphazardly ripped and destroyed to reveal an inner layer of denim, while slim-fit jeans are thoroughly washed for an overall lived-in look. Then there are the aforementioned shorts—raw-edged and cut off just a few inches from the crotch so that they're just a touch away from being too revealing. But also, perhaps the perfect arsenal to beat the tropical heat whenever it hits.
The complements to Saint Laurent's latest denim collection aren't too shabby either. If the edgy, ripped aesthetic of the denim pieces could perhaps traipse on being too casual, the range of tops and outerwear (as exemplified by the styling in the campaign) helps to balance the overall look. One would need the irreverence of the young Beckham to pull them off, but it's mostly all in the attitude—a true Saint Laurent spirit.
The Saint Laurent denim collection is now available in boutiques.
