Hybrid Jeans: Mango’s denim/leather crossover

mango-leather-jeansAre you still wearing jeans that are made from only one fabric? Denim, say? Well, you are SO behind the times, sister! Nowadays all jeans have to contain AT LEAST two different fabrics, and this is by decree of the fashion Gods.

We showed you one example of this “trend” yesterday, with Siwy’s “jeans and nylons” creation, and now here’s another, this time from Mango, who’ve mated denim and leather. We like this example a little more than the Siwy jeans, purely because at least we know we wouldn’t ladder these ones while we were putting them on, but we still think the effect is a little cheap: perhaps unsurprisingly, given that these are £42, and clearly not real leather. Would you wear them?

    No I wouldn’t wear them. Not even if I had some wonderfully bad fake tanned feet to go with them.

    I’m holding out for the denim/furs… maybe they can toss in some stud work too? (that’s sarcasm)

    Not entirely ugly, but not entirely stylish. The good is that they fit the model well. The bad is that an interesting idea turned out to be very uninteresting in execution

    wonder if they’ll make a reverse pair with the leftovers from this frankenjean…pleather (lets call a spade a spade) pant with faded jean leg…in old 80s video fashion the wearers would have a dance off/battle to show whose frankenjeans are supreme

    I think this look would be much better if they were real leather rather than the shiny stuff they’re using.

    I still wouldn’t wear them, but they wouldn’t look nearly as cheap.
