    We thought ripped jeans were as experimental as it got in terms of how to wear your denim this season, but oh, how wrong we were.

    Behold Vetement’s bold new creation: the Vetements x Levi’s high rise distressed jeans, which feature zips all the way down the legs, and more importantly, on the bum.

    How do you wear jeans with a zip on the bum? According to Vetements, it’s all about pulling the zip down a bit to flash a bit of lacy lingerie, or, if you’re brave enough, bare skin.

    Now, like any daring fashion trend worth its salt, it’s completely divided the internet.

    There are those that think it’s perhaps a tad out there…

    And there are those that are all over it.

    Regardless of where you stand on the jeans, there’s no doubt about it, at least they’ve got everyone talking (they’re still available to buy on My Theresa FYI).

    While we might not be bold enough to unzip the back, we do think they’re rather stylish with the zips done up, and we’d team it with a bright summer knit.
