Levi’s® x Liberty London Capsule Collection
For the very first time, Levi’s® brand has collaborated with Liberty of London for a womenwear’s capsule collection. The Liberty prints have been designed exclusively for this collection. The silhouettes designed by the Levi’s® brand have been pulled from the archives and interpreted to reflect the trends of today
The Liberty fabric design studio created two exclusive prints for the Levi’s® X Liberty London collection. The hero print from the collection is called Carlin. This design of painterly garden flowers is inspired by a print in the Liberty archive from the 1970s. The print was redrawn with watercolour pencils and put into repeat design to create a painted, colourful, and flowing floral. The design is named after the Levi’s® designer Jenny Carlin who worked on the collection.
Kerr Bandana is the second print in the collection. The design is both floral and Pointillist in its appearance and is inspired by a painting from the Liberty archive that dates back to the late 1940s. The Levi’s® and Liberty design teams originally redesigned the Kerr Bandana print as a bandana design with a border, and then took the elements to laser burn the pattern onto the denim. The denim is then garment finished using an innovative laser technique to apply the design to the indigo.
The Levi’s® X Liberty London collection features 15 pieces including the iconic 501® jean short, Trucker jacket, boyfriend skinny jean, a bustier and a small collection of covetable accessories.
The collection will be available at Levi’s® Flagship Store The Gardens Mall, Levi’s® Store Pavilion and Levi’s® Store Suria KLCC from May 2013 onwards
