Festival season kicked off last week in Austin with South By Southwest (SXSW). With Coachella (April), Stagecoach (April) and FYF (August) coming up, the release of the Levi’s x Rolling Stone capsule collection, comes at no better time.
The collection honors the iconic music magazine’s 50th anniversary, featuring vintage-inspired band tee shirts, a denim jacket featuring Rolling Stone’s official logo embroidered on the back, and a variety of enamel logo pins referencing classic music iconography.
Classic denim and rock-and-roll music seem to be historically associated with one another, with jeans serving as a wardrobe staple for musicians. This collection offers even non-musicians a way to get a rock-star look. The limited-edition collaboration includes 13 unisex pieces that merge classic rock and roll style with Levi’s iconic knack for epitomizing American cool through their innovative yet, classic denim designs. Here are five of our favorite pieces from the new collection.
1. Levi’s x Rolling Stone Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket
This classic denim jacket features the Rolling Stone logo along with the emblematic American flag stitched by hand on the back. Adding to the jacket’s name, it features a boxy, over-sized “ex-boyfriend,” fit in a medium-dark wash that mimics the look of the original Trucker Jacket launched in 1967. This updated version is finished with just the right amount of faded detail balanced out by its structured tailoring. The rigidity of this 100% cotton denim jacket, enhances the jacket’s vintage appeal, making it a timeless pieces that will look effortlessly cool for decades to come. Levi’s has only made 50 units of this limited-edition remake.
2. Levi’s x Rolling Stone Graphic Tee Shirt
This vintage-inspired graphic tee draws influence from a classic band tee shirt, with a slightly worn-in look giving it an authentic vintage appeal. The Rolling Stone logo is screen-printed alongside the Levi’s signature batwing logo, heralding the merging of two All-American brands.
3. Levi’s x Rolling Stone Trucker Jacket Pin
This pin visualizes the back view of this collection’s classic Levi’s denim trucker jacket with the Rolling Stones patched on the back. The enamel pin became a decorative accessory popularized in rock and roll subculture in the 1960s, as they were frequently sold as merch during concerts and performances. They became so popular that they were often collected and traded with other fans. Whether collected or worn, this enamel pin offers a subtle way to add rock-and-roll edge to your look, adding a touch of flair to your jacket lapel, backpack, or handbag.
4. Levi’s x Rolling Stone Graphic Tee
This vintage-inspired tee shirt features a worn-in finish with the slightly-faded Rolling Stone logo written across the front. This unisex cotton tee would look great styled with either blue jeans or a leather skirt for rocker-chic feel.
5. Levi’s x Rolling Stones Turn Table Pin
This small enamel pin is modeled after a turntable and will look great pinned to your favorite bag, tee shirt, or denim pocket. This pin may be small and subtle, but the unique design and glossy surface will stand out regardless of what you put it on.
