The latest trend consuming netizens with confusion and annoyance is denim underwear. Part of a recent collection by denim brand Y/Project, the denim panties can seemingly be worn both as underwear or an outfit if you are adventurous enough. According to Y/Project’s creative director Glenn Martens, the inspiration for the collection was about simplifying and playing around with construction.
Lyst, the largest global fashion search platform that lets you search thousands of online fashion stores at once, bringing together 5 million products from 12,000 of the world’s leading brands and retailers in one place, says the denim panties from French brand Y/Project’s spring 2019 runway show will be a big hit this year.
Lyst reported that, the extremely high-cut denim shorts garnered over 3.8K social media mentions in just under one week, totaling over 514K in social engagement. Even though the item is rather polarizing, shoppers from all over the world are actively searching for the janties, resulting in a 2250% increase in page views since Mid-March.
Vogue went on to enlist the advice of an ob-gyn to ask what effect the janties could have on one’s health. Their advice? If you’re going to wear janties, best invest in a G-string.
