If you're concerned about the crazy denim in Elin Kling's Guess by Marciano capsule collection, you're not alone. The Swedish style blogger admits that she too had reservations about the acid-happy wash after discovering it at the Guess HQ: "I walked by, stopped, walked back and had a second look. I thought they were really bad in one way, at the same time as I loved the wash. I just felt that I had to give it a try. They reminded me of the time, 10 years ago, while I used to live in Milan. This was something typical you could see someone wearing on the streets, or something I would definitely pull off. And I wanted to do that again, in a new way (thanks god)."
