Raw And Unrefined: 12 Fashion Pieces That Embrace The Perfectly Imperfect

Rough around the edges

By Bianca Licina | 31st October 2023

Just as we push ourselves to embrace our imperfections, we are encouraged to question the pursuit of perfection in fashion. Welcome to a realm of raw edges, unfinished hems, exposed stitching and asymmetry – this is ‘unfinished fashion’ and it’s the style challenging the status quo of aesthetics.

A quiet rebellion against mass production, unfinished fashion celebrates individuality and pushes the boundaries on what’s considered ‘perfect’. Although dubbed ‘unfinished fashion’, it is a deliberate and conscious choice – a purposeful creation of garments that carry an air of cool nonchalance. 

Championed by icons like Mason Margiela and Comme des Garcon, this look has ruled the runways as of late, and found its way into the hearts and wardrobes of everyday fashion enthusiasts.
