Levi’s Spring 2011 Preview

The good folks at Levi’s have been busy at their new digs on 18 Wooster Street. Home to their well publicized vintage photo workshop (where one can borrow a vintage camera for a day of photos) the vast, airy space has been a hub for a multitude of events. This past Thursday was the Spring 2011 preview which debuted looks from their Water<Less collection. This is denim with a green message. It is made with considerably less water than the usual finishing process, which proves that you don’t have to sacrifice style for the sake of sustainability. The looks were tried and true Americana, cropped denim and bandanas with a kind of Easy Rider 60’s feel. Later in the evening, the models stepped down from the white platforms and the space became a stage for the southern band The Duke Spirit, who played a rousing set of gritty and soulful rock n roll.

William Rast Fall 2009

For Fall 2009, we are embracing a “renewed confidence” as well as getting our kicks on Route 66. The creative team at William Rast – label founders Justin Timberlake and Trace Ayala, along with Marcella and Johan Lindeberg – delivered “New America”, a “dusty” and black & white “biker culture” where the only direction is forward, no maps required.

The collection is grounded in American iconography, with focus on stonewashed denim, fringed leather biker jackets, and the classic white tee, all with a modern twist. Sleek fits, some unusual wide sculpted shoulders, and a huge feather and fur trimmed dress bring a couture element to our favorite pastimes of cross-country road-trips and bunking under the open night sky.

Men and women share the same attitude. Re-crafted blazers feature leather lapels and jean pockets. The crisp dress shirt is “re-energized” with black fringe tassels while contoured lace patches add a feminine touch to dirty denim. The stripes-and-no-stars graphic shown on grey tees is wonderfully vintage, especially when paired with flannel plaids and chrome grommet details. The collection also includes sleek vests, leather pants, and black skinny and acid wash jeans. Heavy ankle boots with stud detail (and even more fringe) completed each look.
