However there have also been many years of intermittent revulsion against this style specially against ugly combinations.However, this style is definitely back with various celebrities. But , what is surprising is that this trend is now permeating the sports arena as well.
Recently , Barcelona FC team touched down in Berlin ahead of the UEFA Champions League final in head-to-toe denim. Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Luis Suarez stepped across the tarmac after touching down at the airport and showcased their unified denim prowess. But the athletes just did not put up any jeans but they had actually highly crafted and curated uniforms designed by Replay. The team has now chosen to wear Replay clothes for the next 4 years and it is also the first time a denim brand has worked with football team. Describing its range, Replay says:
‘From its work-wear origins, denim has evolved over the years into the casual followed by premium sector but has never been contemplated as part of a formal outfit, until now. ‘Indigo colour, slim fit and shimmering effect reveal Replay’s peculiar reinterpretation of elegance whilst retaining its denim heritage.
