Take a look at the spring 2022 runways and the presence of denim cannot be ignored. The difference this year is the explosion of not just washes and treatments but also an array of silhouettes.
With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, we checked in with designer Morgan Lewis about her passion for denim, the brands she views as leading and this year’s 10 hottest trends denim trends.
Snobette: What attracted you to denim?
Morgan Lewis: “I was searching for a job five years ago and was contacted by a nice recruiter on LinkedIn who insisted I apply to an open denim position she had. Until then, I had only designed a denim jegging with a minimal dry process. Denim was not my expertise. Now, I no longer have an interest in designing anything besides denim. I like to describe learning about denim as peeling back layers of an onion. People have no clue how much goes into making denim despite how ubiquitous it is. It’s quite fascinating.”
Snobette: Looking at the trends you selected, do you have a personal favorite?
Morgan Lewis: “It’s a tie between low rise and boot cut, reminds me of my youth.”
Snobette: Can you share with us your three favorite women-owned denim brands?
Morgan Lewis : “Oak and Acorn by Miko Underwood, Mother Denim co-owned by Lela Becker and Pistola by Grace Na.”
