Levi’s pairs up with the italian fashion brand Off-White for a reinterpretation of their classic pieces
For their latest coup Levi’s, also known as the American cult brand, teamed up with Off-White, Virgil Abloh’s highly acclaimed Milan based fashion label. Abloh is widely known as Kanye West’s creative director, however he managed to emancipate himself in the last few years and made a name for himself as a designer. Since Off-White’s foundation in 2013 the ghanaian-american multi talent (who is a qualified architect, as well as a DJ and producer) has positioned his label among the big players of high fashion. The joint collection is full of reinterpretation of old jeans classics. It covers twelve styles, in light blue denim, including denim jackets, pants and tops for men and women, whereas half of the collection is labeled as unisex.
Our absolute highlight: the giant signature zippers in circular form. A catchy detail, that appears on the frontside of the pants as well as on the oversized denim jackets, in both black and white colorways.Moreover, the editorial is a treat as well. Casting not one, but two models of color sends a great message in terms of diversity in the fashion industry.
The co-design will lend new splendour to the model Levi’s® Made & Crafted™- a downright of the house. The collection combines authenticity and contemporary coolness and thereby hits the sweet spot between streetwear and runway – or in accordance with Virgil Abloh’s brand motto let’s just call it: “the grey area”.
The Levi’s Made & Crafted x Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh Kollektion is now available at off-white.com and in selected high end stores.
