Levi’s® & JJJJound have announced the launch of their first collaboration, set for Spring/Summer 2023. The new collection features a mix of denim-inspired tops, bottoms, and accessories that reflects both brand’s shared commitment to quality, durability and minimalist design.
Launched in 2006, JJJJound started as a digital mood board to reexamine the recurring patterns in timeless design. With thousands of curated images, the cohesive visual stream has become a mainstay and reference for the global design community. Evolving into a collaborative design studio, the brand’s approach is centered around fabrication with purpose and longevity, the design & construction of meaningful physical environments and the continued curation of its digital world.
Few designs are as timeless as Levi’s® 501® Jean, one of the most enduring icons of style across the globe, which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2023. What began as a patent for copper rivets on work pants in 1873 has transformed into one of the most iconic, democratic and influential pieces of clothing ever created. To commemorate this historic milestone, Levi’s® & JJJJound add another chapter to the story of the 501® in their first-ever collaboration.
The six-piece capsule features a range of apparel and accessories with light wash selvedge denim as the catalyst. Serving as a reinterpretation of timeless classics, each piece was meticulously constructed with elevated fabrications, precise componentry, & subtle branding, while maintaining the integrity and identity of both labels.
