I recently read an article from the Cut about Michelle Siwy’s “Chloe Wave” 24 inch-opening Seventies-Inspired JeansÔÇªand not only NY Magazine, but apparently a few other sources are citing that the Bell Bottom is about to be all the rage once again, as well. And although the Chloe wave is pretty much on sale everywhere you look (check them out now at ShopBop), and is not featured in the Siwy Spring/Summer ’09 look book (check that out here!)ÔÇªmy inquiring mind wants to knowÔÇªcould it be true??
If you haven’t seen the Chloe Waves, let’s just say that I’m not talking about a simple flare or just an oversize boot cut. I’m talking about full-on Farrah Fawcett Swinging Bell Bottom. Yep, BellsÔÇªlike we haven’t seen ÔÇÿem since Forrest was chasing Jenny off a roof.
So, since I haven’t seen a Rachel or a Sienna running around in the Siwy Bells (o any Bells for that matter!), my guess is that maybe Michelle is redesigning the less than exciting Wavy Cut Chloe with inlaid panels for a Fall 2009 lookÔÇªsomething that might make us stop saying skinny?
What’s your take? Are you ready for something with a little more flare? Check out the Siwy look below:
