For Autumn/Winter 2014, Levi’s Vintage Clothing continues to capture the spirit and heritage of its treasured archive by revisiting the bygone eras of the 1930s and 1970s in two stunning stories.
Not many workwear brands quite have the storied and lengthy heritage than that of Levi’s. Their treasured history provides a trove of inspiration for Levi’s Vintage Clothing’s seasonal collections of iconic reissues and special editions. For Autumn/Winter 2014, the LVC explores two iconic eras for the American brand: the 1930s and blue collar workers responsible for the modern American metropolises, and the renegades and revolutionaries of the 1970s with Levi’s Orange Tab. Below we take a look at each story respectively.
This season LVC pays tribute to the visionaries who dreamed up cityscapes and the hardworking men who made them a reality. Faithfully capturing the spirit and heritage of these pioneering American workers, the collection’s garments are divided into two themes that balance between traditional workwear as well as more smarter office looks for the visionary architects. Standout items include raw denim chore coats, wide cut 5-pockets and triple-pleated truckers, while a selections of premium wool coats, floral button-downs, and cozy knitwear nods to the sartorial story.
Carrying over from A/W 13 and S/S 14, LVC continue to drive their iconic “Orange Tab” line for the new season. Made in the USA, exactly as it was produced when it was released in the 1960s and 70s, the collection revives retro American classics like the 606, 615 and 684 jeans alongside bright cast western shirts, sherpa vests and suede jackets. Other standout pieces include indigo panelled pants and trucker, and embroidered chambray shirts.
Made in the USA, the “Metropolis” and “X” collection are now available at Levi’s Vintage Clothing’s.
