All I've been wearing these days are skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans. And I have to say, I'm kind of bored with these shapes. I mean, whether I walk the streets of New York and Singapore, they're just everywhere! Honestly, skinny jeans have been around since 2005, and aren't exactly humidity friendly. While boyfriend denims are loose and comfortable, I'm feeling the need to shake things up. So while researching for new denim shapes, I came across these tapered jeans from G-Star Raw's Women's Fall 2010 Collection:

These are more drop crotch in style, and not the classic tapered ones we are all familiar with, so I'm definitely intrigued. I like how they look slouchy but still cool, as you can see from the photos.
While I've never owned anything from G-Star Raw, I'm familiar with the brand. It's a denim line that started in 1989 in The Netherlands, and their store in SoHo is often frequented by European tourists. Strange how I never even entered the store once the whole time I was there, and now I discover they actually have great stuff! With a philosophy of "Just the Product", they've been known to start the Raw denim trend, and are famous for their different washes and treatments and distinctive denim silhouettes - all developed with architectural and 3-D concepts in mind.
If their tapered denims aren't distinctive enough for you, I don't know what else will! For your dose of well constructed, distinctive denims, G-Star Raw has stores all over the world - from Austria and Australia to China, Italy, Japan, Spain, the UK and the US.
G-Star Raw denims are also available online via their website and stores like Very UK.
