Hot ticket London designers Ed Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff included some rather exciting 'sculptural,' distressed, heavily stitched denim - something which doesn't appeal to us in theory, but which we rather love here - in their spring/summer 09 collection.

A little bit Frankenstein-like, but in a good way. Jak&Jil snapped Caroline Issa, the publisher of Tank Magazine, wearing the top one during Paris Fashion Week:
We just think it's such an amazing statement jacket, and we love how it looks like the lower part of her arm is hanging loose, puppet like, at first glance.. subversive stuff, and all done in standard old denim (obviously made exciting here).
