Stüssy & Levi’s announced the launch of their latest collaborative collection, dropping Friday 24 February. The beloved brands have shared roots in California – Stüssy was born from the Southern California surf scene in the late ’80s and early ’90s while Levi’s was founded in San Francisco 170 years ago.
2023 marks the 150th anniversary of Levi’s 501 Jeans, one of the most enduring icons of global style. The range features a pair of 501 Jeans and a modified Type II Trucker Jacket – two classic Levi’s silhouettes reimagined with Stüssy’s signature design aesthetic.
The 501 Jean comes in a rugged, worn indigo wash. An original fit jean cut with a straight leg, 5-pocket styling, and signature button fly with co-branded shanks. Featuring an embossed Stüssy & Levi’s motif on the front left and back right legs, plus a custom co-branded back patch combining the Levi’s Two Horse Pull and Stüssy logos. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of 501 Jeans, the Stüssy & Levi’s 501 includes a special edition pocket bag print and anniversary pocket flasher.
The Type II Trucker Jacket comes in a rugged, worn indigo wash to match the 501 Jeans. The jacket is modified with a boxy fit, relaxed armhole, added welt pockets, and includes a corduroy collar, co-branded button shanks, Baja-inspired pocket bags and inside lining with Stüssy’s eight-ball logo printed. The back of the jacket features an embossed motif, merging a classic Levi’s button shank graphic with Stüssy’s subversive Double S design, resulting in bold visual & tactile textures.
The collection launches worldwide on February 24th, 2023. The collection will be available for purchase exclusively online at Levi.co.za.
