Diesel x Lee – New Capsule Collection

Remember, this past December we shared with you all about the exciting DIESEL❤VES collaboration?! Now, let’s check out part two which just launched:

Following the December partnership statement and exclusive preview in Europe and Japan, today Lee and Diesel announce that the new DIESEL❤VES LEE capsule is available globally.

The two denim giants, in theory competitors, united to create a collection of jeans fully constructed from fabric sourced from both brands’ respective unsold stock. Artisanal conceived and crafted to embrace differences in length and rise, each DIESEL❤VES LEE jean either has Diesel denim on front and Lee on the back, or vice-versa. One half Lee, one half Diesel: every pair one of a kind.

“Lee is proud to be part of this transformative initiative; it’s a reflection of our shared commitment to driving meaningful change by uniting our expertise,” said Simon Fisher, managing director of Lee Europe. “Through this capsule collection, Lee and Diesel redefine competition by prioritizing innovation. By joining forces, we harness our collective strengths to lead by example, one denim at a time.”

As the everyday uniform of modern life, denim is something everyone has in common despite our differences. This collaboration represents the power of denim to unite in line with both brands’ commitment to creatively finding a new use for unsold, excess inventory.

Requiring significant development to harmonize all the different fits, treatments and sizings, the capsule has two fits and four styles playing on the brands’ combined heritage – two men’s straight fits, two women’s boot/flare fits – and features customized trim and unique details enriched with raw-cut and needle-stitched side seams.

“It’s easier to create something new than it is to repurpose a garment, especially when customers want it to look exactly like they do online,” said Glenn Martens, creative director for Diesel and the creator of DIESEL❤VES LEE “The small things you do can go far and deep. DIESEL❤VES  LEE is the ideal opening act for our continuous call to action with DIESEL❤VES LEE. Two denim giants, often selling the exact same product with different logos, dropping our weapons and teaming up to address overconsumption and make something good and beautiful.”  

Created exclusively for DIESEL❤VES LEE, the limited-edition capsule is sold in select Diesel and Lee stores globally as well as on each brand’s owned websites
