STÜSSY & LEVI’S® ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF THEIR LATEST COLLABORATIVE COLLECTION FOR THE S/S23 SEASON
The popular brands both hail from California – Stüssy emerged from the Southern California surf scene of the late ’80s and early ’90s, and Levi’s® was founded 170 years ago in San Francisco. 2023 marks the 150th anniversary of Levi’s® 501® jeans, one of the longest-lasting global style icons. The Stüssy & Levi’s® collection includes 501® jeans and a modified Type II Trucker Jacket – two classic Levi’s® silhouettes cast in Stüssy’s signature style for the occasion.
The 501® jeans have a rough, worn indigo wash. These 5-pocket jeans have an original straight fit with a straight leg and the signature button fly with co-branded jeans buttons. An embossed Stüssy & Levi’s® motif is featured on the front of the left and back of the right leg, and a special co-branded patch with the Levi’s® Two Horse Pull and Stüssy logos adorns the back. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the 501® jeans, the Stüssy & Levi’s® 501® has a special edition print on the inside of the pocket and a special anniversary label on the back pocket.
The Type II Trucker Jacket has a rugged, distressed indigo wash to match the 501® jeans. The jacket has been restyled with a boxy fit, wider armholes, extra welt pockets and a corduroy collar, co-branded jeans buttons, Baja-inspired pocket interiors and a lining with a print of the Stüssy logo with the 8 ball. On the back of the jacket we find an embossing that combines the design of the classic Levi’s® jeans button with Stüssy’s subversive double S design, resulting in bold visual and tactile textures.
