Levi’s & Opening Ceremony: Dull Product Shots, Better By Bubble

We had some high hopes for the Levi’s and Opening Ceremony collaboration. But preview shots are out, and we’re having some mixed feelings. Style.com posted some product images of the line—some corduroy cut-offs and button-downs, as well as a denim jacket—and we thought we were looking at pictures of Levi’s styles that have been around for ages. Wisely, the two companies also appealed to bloggers, sending Susie of Style Bubble the complete collection, and asking her to style it. She’s done a much better job with presenting the fashions, going monochromatic, or putting two bright colors together.

We’re still not sure, however, if the corduroy wares look better on Bubble because of the cool choices she paired them with, or if they’re worth it as stand-alone items. Check out some more pics after the jump. What do you think? [Style.com] Keep reading »

Random Fashion: Levi’s And Cram Jam Chest Make Denim Doggy

Have you ever heard of Cram Jam Chest? Us neither. From the looks of their half-in-Japanese website, they make stuffed art. In any case, they’ve teamed up with Levi’s to make a series of puppies made out of denim for the Levi’s store in Shibuya, Japan. Is this a good way to recycle jeans? These denim doggies are mighty cute … but not sure we’d put down for a stuffed animal. (No one can ever replace Winkie, the all but destroyed teddy bear you won’t admit to keeping under your pillow).

Opening Ceremony And Levi’s Create Denim Awesomeness

We’ll come clean: Opening Ceremony is one of those concept stores we love to follow and write about, but have we ever bought anything there? No. We believe the term is called … aspirational living. Anyhow, now’s the chance for us to step across the gilded threshold because the high-end retailer has teamed up with Levi’s to launch a special collection with a $150 price cap. The range will include some denim items, including jackets (nice, bringing them back), plus a bunch of unisex pieces (everyone’s favorite thing these days).

Interestingly, a large chunk of the line will be devoted to corduroy. Teen Vogue reports that there will be “eight different shades including lavender and curry.” The material is definitely classic, but come to think of it, we haven’t worn our corduroy pants in quite some time. How do you feel about them? Different for girls than guys? [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »

Jailhouse Couture From Levi’s

Because being in jail doesn’t have to mean looking bad (um?), Levi’s presents clothes fit for incarceration. From actually really cute high-waisted, black and white striped pants to screen printed tees that will give you that prison tat look with half the pain and none of the permanence, Levi’s has got you covered for an overnighter in the clink. Perfect for when you get charged in connection with that grisly scene now on display over at Barney’s. More of the looks, after the jump… [High Snobiety]

Check out the full lookbook after the jump and tell us: Are you feeling the felon look? Keep reading »

Fashion Police: Model Arrested On Runway For Indecency

A saucy catwalk stunt by Bollywood-hearthbrob Akshay Kumar landed him and his wife in the slammer. During Lakme Fashion Week, Kumar, who is brand ambassador for Levi’s “Unbuttoned” collection, attempted to do just that when he paused on the catwalk and asked his wife to unbutton his jeans. It would have been cute, if it wasn’t illegal. According to section 294 of the Indian Penal code this sexy-time stunt violated India’s obscenity laws and is punishable to up to two years in prison.

After the stunt, someone filed a complaint and Kumar’s wife was arrested while Akshay followed by turning himself in to cops. The stunt-loving star apologized to the public and his wife was let out on bail. Sigh, how quickly feeling frisky can lead to being frisked! [Metro.co.uk] Keep reading »

Classic Levi’s Sell For $36,099 On eBay

A pair of old-school Levi’s from the 1890s was found in an abandoned mine in California’s Mojave Desert. The company historian for Levi Strauss & Co. thinks they’re the 201 style, a “value” (read: cheaper) version of their 501s. The jeans sold on eBay for $36,099 last week, which is three times as much as the most expensive pair of jeans we’ve heard of, which are covered with Swarovski crystals. Let this be a lesson: Classic always trumps trendy. [WWD] Keep reading »
