Another innovative collection from the denim giant that nods to the golden era of hip-hop and the styles of N.W.A. and EPMD. WGSN Denim Editor Samuel Trotman reports
Levi’s is known for their progressive collaborations with upcoming designers and collectives alike and F/W 15 is no different with the denim giant tapping Amsterdam label Patta for a collection of 1990s inspired skate silhouettes.
Taking inspiration from hip-hop’s golden era at the start of the decade – most notably acts like EPMD & N.W.A. – the collection looks to signature styles of the time with active-inspired utility shapes. Much like the thrifted pieces seen on the streets in youth-driven cities like London, Paris and Tokyo, this new collection provides more contemporary takes on these daily streetwear classics.
Included in the collection are Levi’s iconic 501 jeans updated with the newly launched custom tapered leg fit known as the 501 CT, the renowned classic western shirt, and the iconic Trucker denim jacket.
This is further complemented with modern day classics, such as the fishtail parka and the coach jacket – all of which have been finished with custom acid washes in blue and black dyes, along with some nicely styled co-branded two-horse pull back patch. The collection will drop in two deliveries, the first being a black acid washed collection, followed shortly by the indigo acid washed range.
The first delivery of the Levi’s® X Patta collection will be available on September 5th at Patta’s retail store in Amsterdam and patta.nl, along with the following global retail locations: Hanon in Aberdeen, Scotland; Hip, UK; Slamjam, Italy; Beams T, Japan; and Undefeated, Los Angeles.
The collection ranges in price from €90/$100-€200/$223.
