This weeks review is on Goldsign’s Virtual High-Rise Skinny In Zagir available at Trilogy London’s premium denim specialist.
The skinny jean as a style is definitely my first choice, purely as I feel it shows off my best assets …. my legs! However certain elements need to be right so lets see how the Virtual high-rise skinny stacks up.
Sam wears Tucker Blouse in Puffs Pretty Pink £245 and Goldsign Virtual Skinny in Zagir
I’m trying on a size 25.
The Fit: A high rise skinny with a super stretch fabric combined to make this a figure flattering and easy to wear jean. The denim has a luxurious soft feel with a good stretch which holds you in. Sizes start at 24 – 30 which is approx size 6 to 12.
Front Rise: Measures 10 inches, Back Rise: 12 inches giving a good coverage.
The Behind: The yoke (top section under the waistband) of this jean is shaped to give the wearer a peachy bottom. Often with high-waisted styles the bottom becomes square and elongated. Because of the shape of the yoke and the position of the pockets it gives the bottom an attractive round shape.
The Leg Opening: This is a very skinny style with a leg opening of 9 inches.
Leg Length: The Virtual is a crop jean with an inseam of 27 inches, on my 5’2″ frame they are full length.
The Fabric: 44% Rayon, 29% Cotton, 25% Cupro, 2% Poly. It seems to be a winning mix of fabrics as these jeans are so comfortable and tactile.
Function: For me the Virtual skinny is a great fitting jean that can go from day to evening in a shoe change. The dark wash called Zagir is a great offering for every-day wear. Inside the jean a note is written “Nobody inspected this garment it’s becoming beautiful by itself “ I think this sums up the function of this style well. It’s not pretending to be anything else.
Which Body Shape? The Goldsign Virtual Skinny is nearly a good all rounder. The high rise makes it a good contender for the curvacious body shape. Hourglass & Pear need to be careful not to appear too hippy as this style is figure-hugging. Perfect for the Long & Leggy. Too high a rise for a Petite body shape. As the token Apple shape I’m actually going to say depending on your unique rise measurement, this may or may not be the perfect jean for you! ( I’ll explain below).
The Round Up Of The Goldsign Virtual Skinny In Zagir
Now let me explain my remark above. At ilovejeans.com we use six body shapes for you the customer to Identify your shape. In those six body shapes there are many variations and this is due to the individual rise measurement. As a petite apple body shape I have a short rise ( measurement from the crotch to the belly button) so the 10 inch rise is slightly too high taking me out of my comfort zone of the waistband sitting under the belly button. Depending on your rise measurement, this jean really could be perfect for you!
The price is steep at £265. Your paying for premium denim with a great fit from Goldsign.
Tried & Tested Score: 8.5
