Partnering with the world’s largest brand-name apparel companies and a global leader in jeanswear, White Mountaineering has taken its inspiration from the great outdoors to help create a collection that combines both urban and outdoor wear. Since its launch 15 years ago, the Tokyo-based brand has been turning out innovative, high quality, and most importantly, eye-catching designs that are every bit as functional on the mountain as they are stylish on the runways. And now, as part of their Fall/Winter 2020, White Mountaineering has joined forces with Levis to create a truly unique assortment of ready-to-wear pieces.
The collection oozes stylish functionality, innovative fabrication — with the heritage and craftsmanship of Levi’s® Made & Crafted. With a range of men’s and women’s jackets, tops, bottoms, and one dress.Expect to find ready-to-wear pieces, fishtail parka, oversized cargo pants, or an M65 jacket, but with a unique mountaineering twist to create an iconic outerwear-meets-streetwear aesthetic.
Taking the to the Levi’s archives, a re-imagined version of a Levi’s® Sunset popover shirt is by far a highlight of the collection. It’s also hard to ignore the classic 505 jean, which has been modified to combine both nylon and denim. Pieces from both labels have also featured varying motifs, including a back patch with White Mountaineering above the Levi’s Made & Crafted Two Horse Pull logo, internal tags with the collaborative logo lockup, and a special collaborative hangtag with the story of the collaboration on the back.
The Levi’s Made & Crafted x White Mountaineering will be able to purchase from 4th September.
