In recent news, Shepard Fairey‘s Obey brand has teamed up with Levi’s on a small capsule collection. As you can see in the gallery below, the collection consists of a flannel woven shirt, two pairs of denim in the 511 and 514 models, two jean jackets, and a few t-shirts. Shepard lends his touch on the authority of denim in the form of a variety of patches and easily recognized industrial propoganda art . And while maintaining a limited edition appeal, the collection will be readily accessible. The Levi’s x Obey Capsule Collection is due to hit Levi’s Soho, Time Square, Santa Monica, San Francisco, Chicago and online on October 29th.
To coincide with the launch next Thursday, Shepard will be producing a live installation at the Time Square Levi’s flagship store. And shortly afterwards, there will be an in-store signing for the 4 limited edition art prints (on a first come, first serve while supplies last basis) for purchases made. In other words, expect to see a camp out in front of the Time Square Levi’s. Personally, I would love to get my hands on either one of the jean jackets and possibly the Levi’s logo with Obey‘s Andre the Giant collabo stencil heather gray tee.
