To celebrate the opening of their Champs Élysées store in Paris, Levi’s enlisted the help of DFA’s James Murphy, Pedro Winters from Ed Banger Records, Mr. Andre, and Shepard Fairey to create their own personal trucker jackets.

The new and impressively large Levi’s flagship Paris store on the Champs-Elysées has been busy since its opening at the beginning of May.

The Levi’s brand commissioned graffiti artists André Saraiva and Shepard Fairey to create their own customized patches for a truckerjJacket to be sold exclusively at the store.

The jackets were launched last week at a special event, and the guys also created in-store installations and exclusive music mixes to accompany the jackets. Fairey’s version channels his classic OBEY references, while Saraiva’s rendition features his signature Mr. A figure and a France callout. Both draw strong inspiration from the biker gang jackets of the Hells Angels in the 60s and metalheads’ multi-patched souvenir jackets that we’ve been calling out as a key trend for a while.

These two jackets join the existing creations by LCD Soundsystem, DFA’s James Murphy and Pedro Winters from Ed Bangers Records. The jackets will be sold for €190 EUR (approximately $235 USD) exclusively from the Champs-Elysées store.

  • A few years ago, I would have been shocked by the price of the clothing that is on sale these days! But over the last few years buying jackets for girls(daughters), I can say that these special edition jackets are pretty much standard fare these days. It is amazing how costs have skyrocketed! I wish I could go back to the old days!

  • This Good Pictures and this good articles. And This is Good For Your Style Jacket Fashion.

    Thanks You
