Since 2005 OrSlow has made clothes in Japan that are inspired by vintage garments. Rather than straight reproductions, they focus on interpreting the past through a modern lens with emphasis on quality construction, comfort and timeless style.
This skirt is inspired by the 50s, a time when leisure wear and denim became more and more popular. A few decades earlier denim was considered a workwear fabric and it wasn't until after the second world war that the tough fabric became popular and common in casual clothing.
This beautiful denim skirt ismore or less a straight up and down reproduction of a 50's skirt. Why change something that is already good. OrSlow has managed to capture this 50's style in a contemporary way, the shirt has a high waist and close at the side of the hip, a detail synonymous with women's clothes from the middle of the last century. This makes the skirt follow the shape of the body and you don't need to worry about a fly that might be uncomfortable. The wide and arrow shaped belt loops along with the square shaped front pockets and the mother of pearl snap buttons are all details associated with mid century casual western wear.
The skirt has been washed once, which brings out a bright indigo color and also makes sure that it won't shrink when you wash it at home!
