Yves Saint Laurent once said :” I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.” Jeans are the only type of clothing that never went,goes or will go out of style. Of course they evolve based on time but yet they remain the most important piece of clothing in our wardrobe either if you call yourself a ‘fashionista’ or not. And among the most dedicated designers , there are some who stand out when it comes to denim.
Albania has a small fashion market but we do have some special designers and newly ones like Albiona and Jeta , the two sisters from the Street Style Jeans. If you’ve seen their Instagram or you happen to know them, then you do know what I’m talking about. If not, then let me give you a small taste of what you’re about to experience:
I think I just got denim fever.😍 But before I show you some other fantastic designs made by these two lovely girls let’s just rewind. How did it all started?
Albiona says : ” Haha , everything’s been a creation of the moment, we don’t have much to say about this, because ART doesn’t need specific explanations. But still I want to clarify something about the fact that everyone that asks , want t know whose idea was, how did it all started, who else is behind all this? It’s our production , and that’s what the fuss is all about, our jeans are original and different from anything else you’ve ever seen.”
But what’s all this passion for jeans and why precisely them? The girls respond : ” We don’t know if we could exactly call it a passion, it’s just a material that creates so much advantages and opportunities to use them entirely, and of course immortal , in the aspect that you can do just everything with it in anytime. Umm.. it’s a part of us , that never leaves us and definitely has served us in all the right ways to step up in the fashion field.”
”Everything it’s an inspiration of the moment, we don’t create jeans in series and planned.” – They describe the process of styling the jeans.
But how do the girls operate online with their customers, and will there be a store soon? Albiona quotes: “ Currently we continue selling traditionally, on Instagram, since Albanians haven’t properly entered the online fashion shopping as we should. Anyways we’re there to answer about everything, because in the end this is what we call real passion, to do everything with pleasure.”
She also adds a very exciting news : ” We’re actually working hard to participate in Milan Fashion Week, and that’s what important to us for the moment.” Now I’m excited. Two Albanian designers, two sisters, actually making their way to the top. I’m really looking forward to this.
But all this beautiful work , of course is inspired by someone. A designer , an artist or ..?
“Um of course that we’re inspired. Only not by someone but let’s say by a world like this.”
To all the fashionistas reading my post I say this : ‘‘You must have a pair of these jeans on your wardrobe.”
Throughout the time I sat down to write this article, let me just say how inspired I was personally; not only as a blogger or a writer but as a human being too. Being able to be yourself and express that in your ART is truly what happiness feels like. I really hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. Don’t forget to check out their Instagram for more crazy jeans or just to get inspiration.
Until next time, have a great week. Stay warm.
