The street art scene of Los Angeles provides inspiration for Levi’s Made & Crafted collection this season, with the denim brand looking to the “idea of applying and removing graffiti” as its main reference point.
For spring/summer 2015, the label pays homage to “the process of doing and undoing, and the sense of afterglow that resonates on buildings and walls around the world”, producing a range of worn and distressed-effect pieces including denim, shirting, T-shirts and outerwear.
Prints in the premium line are taken directly from abstract street art designs, joining faded spray paint effects and a neutral palette of washed-out whites, camel, black and blue.
Highlights include the camel bomber – perfect for layering over a simple white tee this SS15 – along with the rugged white ‘Type II’ trucker jacket, complete with a contrasting camel leather collar.
The full collection is available in Levi’s stores and online at levi.co.uk now, as well as at select retailers including Liberty London, Mr Porter, Harvey Nichols and Oki-ni. Prices start at £68 for T-shirts.
