Levi’s launched its Spring/Summer 2011 collection last night with a party held in Soho, New York City, featuring British band The Duke Spirit. Amid drinks and food served in an atmosphere of, like, “we don’t want winter, we want summer NOW”, the models posed on a podium giving us all a great look at the new collection. We’ll be reviewing the entire lookbook here on Denimology as soon as it is available, but meanwhile, here are my impressions.
Guys, rejoice! After all those times when we women robbed you of your jeans (the famous ex-future- current boyfriend jeans), now you have your chance for revenge: the ex-girlfriend jeans are here! Made with “tons” of stretch and super-super-skinny – jeggings for guys! Hello, Levi’s? Are you listening? Can you please do those in a Curve ID for men! For women Levi’s is showing a lot of slouchy fits and even harem pants. The skinnies continue, of course, but I didn’t see any flares or high-waisted jeans. Lots of shorts for girls and cut-offs for guys – always a staple in our summer wardrobes.
