On August 14, 1945 Alfred Eisenstaedt photographed an American sailor kissing a woman in a white dress in Times Square. That sailor wore Seafarer trousers, otherwise known as the first bell-bottom pants, created by Tony Anzalone who had produced the official sailor’s trousers for the US Navy since 1900. Ever since that moment was captured, the Brooklyn-based blue jeans have been the source of many more iconic moments throughout history—from the wide leg versions becoming a symbol of ’60s rebellion to being worn by the likes of Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot.
Seafarer has since undergone a relaunch, attracting a whole new lot of fans. Among them is our editor in chief who has come up with her own specific tips for wearing them. “First, I cut the bottom of the jeans myself because I hate hemming,” Carine explains. “Then I wash them in the washing machine so that the fabric frays. I never wear them with high heels—only flat or very small heels!” Here, CR takes her two favorite Seafarer pairs out of their nautical context, making them ready for the streets of Paris. But not before taking them for a test drive on a very Parisian balcony.
