I hope you’ve been enjoying my reviews for several of the great new pieces from Mavi’s fall denim line! These have been such great additions to my denim collection, topping some of my existing favorites, and I’m definitely thrilled to share them all with you. So far, I’ve shared my two cents on the Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky, the Tess in Ink Stripe, and the Alissa Super Skinny in Dark Smoke Supersoft. Next up is the Tess Super Skinny in Indigo SuperSoft, which is truly a perfect closet essential.
If you’re seeing the first of the series of reviews I’ve done for Mavi so far, here’s a quick history about the brand: established in 1991 in Istanbul, Turkey, Mavi rose to become one of the most highly sought premium denim brands on the market, due to their classic fits, great quality that won’t break the bank, and their smarts to work the trends without looking like all the others. Like most with similar staying power, Mavi has engineered their own fabric blends, like the SuperSoft fabric which now is featured in much of their current Fall/Winter line. Several of my last reviews (links above) were created with this super soft, non-restricting, flattering fabric blend, and the Tess Super Skinny in Indigo SuperSoft is another that features it. Mavi’s Feather line and Indigo Move are other examples of legging-like fabric similar to what many other brands also rushed to innovate in competition with the growing activewear market, and the all new SuperSoft line is Mavi’s latest creation. This fabric is developed with TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers which “offers superior fit retention, structure, and stretch.” TENCEL is also eco-friendly, regenerated from wood cellulose from eucalyptus trees that are grown sustainably on farms. In addition, it’s biodegradable and compostable. It has a nice clean sheen to it, breathes, and does not restrict your movement.
The Tess Super Skinny in Indigo SuperSoft is a classic medium blue washed skinny jean, with a modestly generous high rise of 10″ in the front and 14.5″ in the back to keep you nicely tucked in. They’ve got your timeless denim look, with clean, realistic fading throughout, but without any abrasions. The 44% cotton, 42% tencel, 13% polyester and 1% elastane fabric blend is ultra comfy, as you might expect after reading my description of the SuperSoft fabric, and just as promised, these jeans have not stretched out or bagged out anywhere after multiple wears. Like the others, I went with my usual size of 26 and they are such a perfect fit. I know some people are still a bit afraid of the high rise “trend” out there but this is a very comfortable rise that doesn’t feel too high at all to me. The bottom hem hits above my ankle, which makes them fun to wear with any cute heels or flats, and easy to tuck into boots without any bulkiness. Another thing that makes Mavi’s jeans so timeless and classic is the absence of any in-your-face branding, with only a small ‘M’ on the back right pocket and a rivet right next to it, along with the suede brand patch on the waistband. These truly will go with anything, any time, any season! If you’re searching for a great quality, comfortable and flattering mid-blue washed jean to last you for as long as jeans should, check these out…I doubt you’ll be disappointed!
