Last Thursday, February 21, Levi’s Vintage Clothing celebrated the launch of their new Spring/Summer 13 “Hot Rod” collection at the world famous Tenue de Nîmes Elandsgracht store, Amsterdam. The event was hosted by the Levi’s XX team who curated the store layout with the lookbook artwork, vintage 50s Levi’s pieces as well as some limited edition pieces exclusive to the store. Design Director Miles Johnson and other representatives from the Levi’s were on hand alongside the Tenue de Nîmes team to talk guests through the new hot rod-inspired range.

During the course of the evening guests could watch over British artist, Mark MacDonald as he recreated one of Levi’s archival denim banners.  Hand-painted on a fine red selvedge denim roll, the 1900s-inspired design featured the iconic Levi’s Strauss cowboy and will be hung on permanent display in the Elandsgracht store.

  • I found a pair of vintage levis in a charity shop a couple years ago, I noticed on the red levi label the e was a BIG (E) instead of the small one, I was told before that these were vintage so I bought them for 2euro.

  • Aux municipales,cheap nfl jerseys Freddy Vasseu se présentait en tant que membre du Parti pirate sur une liste de centre droit à Port-Lès-Valence. Résultat des élections, cheap nfl jerseysil est élu au conseil municipal de la ville dès le premier tour. Le Parti pirate compte également 2 autres élus municipaux.

  • Mais cet appui n’a rien de très étonnant quand on connaît cheap nfl jerseysla proximité entre le site internet et le Parti pirate. Début mai, l’ancien porte-parole de Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, s’est lancé dans les Européennes. Son programme : défense de l’Internet libre, de la transparence gouvernementale, ou encore favoriser un plus grand respect des droits individuels. Sans surprise, ce candidat avait reçu le soutien du Parti pirate Finlandais.Il portera la bannière du parti pour les élections et sera candidat à la présidence de la Commission européenne avec Amelia Andersdotter.

  • En France, le Parti pirate présentera des listes dans six des huit cheap nfl jerseyscirconscriptions, avec pas moins de 30 candidats en Île-de-France et pour les Français à l’étranger. En plus de ça, le mouvement sera présent dans une quinzaine d’autres pays européens.
