What does Blue mean to you? Comme des Garcons posed this same question to me, at first I didn't have a foggiest but then when I started to think about it the answer couldn't have been clearer. When I think of Blue I think of the hardest wearing everyday fabric of the lot, Denim. My wardrobe is a proper Blue invasion, there's rarely a day goes by without wearing blue in some shape or form but the staple has always been the sweet colour of indigo. I've got several pairs of jeans in rotation but I always fall back to trusty Levi's. The fit, design, detail and brand history does it for me, and the inky smell and blue fingers you get from the first 6 months of wear; I love that stuff.
