Levi’s Red, the premium jeans' collection of Levi’s born in 1999, is back. In its first edition, it took classic elements of Levi's jeans and rethought them in an avant-garde, more modern interpretation. Similarly, also the new s/s 2022 version of Levi’s Red, has furthermore taken inspiration from the original 2007 collection, reinterpreting not only the classic Levi's, but very specifically the classic Levi's Red.Artful irregularieties
As in 2007, the collection features a mix of artful irregularities like, for instance, asymmetrical bottom details on the back pockets of the jeans, a special stitching on the fly, irregular back pocket and front pocket openings, slightly offset black belt loops and flattened rivets and tabs. Numerous other classic Levi's Red elements are used, but for this collection they complement contemporary, more modern fits and silhouettes and the overall look that results is the ideal embodiment of the Red ethos of "perfect imperfection”.
The s/s 2022 collection also offers the Lunar New Year Special Edition Gold Selvedge Jeans for men and women, made of selvedge denim and adorned with gold selvedge stitching. Another feature is the use of a natural indigo dye from the woad plant. This is a cleaner version of indigo that uses less water and chemicals and is characterized by a lighter indigo hue.
In addition to classic denim tops, the collection comes up with various trucker jackets, jackets and T-shirts for both men and women, including various versions of the Type II Trucker Jacket for men, both of which feature irregular stitching and a fitted waist in the back.
Completing the offer is a pair of khaki cotton twill pants, for men modeled after the pants from the original 2007 collection, and for women the High Loose Flare and the Utility Overall, both made from the same khaki cotton twill fabric dyed with natural dyes.
The Red collection also includes a range of T-shirts with graphics, including a striped T-shirt with a Levi's Batwing logo placed on the left front with irregular stitching and a Lunar New Year T-shirt with graphics in gold foil. While the men's T-shirts and tops are mostly loose-fitting, the pieces in the women's collection are presented in both casual cuts and oversized fits.The pieces create an assortment that showcases favorite elements from the original 2007 collection, while implementing modern fits and reinterpretations, as well as a cleaner and more essential aesthetic, a perfect - but full of imperfections - stylish modern collection that brings together the past, present and future of Levi's.
