CLOT & Levi’s released the “Year of the Tiger” denim collection to celebrate Chinese New Year. Tiger is a symbol of power and bravery. Celebrating this year’s Chinese zodiac sign of the tiger, the “Year of the Tiger” denim collection highlights the animal’s symbolism of power and bravery.
This denim collection includes two Type II Trucker jackets for men and women—the slightly cropped female version comes with Chinese button knots, which is a CLOT signature—a pair of 551z cropped jeans for men in a relaxed fit, and a high-waisted midi skirt for the ladies with a back slit. All pieces in the collection come with specially designed co-branded shank buttons, double-layered patches as well as a silk back patch adorned with CLOT’s emblematic Silk Royale pattern. A tribute to Levi’s® DIY spirit celebrating both personality and sustainability, the designs are highly versatile and intended to be mix-and-match or customized. The jackets, for example, can be worn as unisex pieces, whereas the midi skirt can be scissored down into shorter lengths.
“We wanted to create something that was culturally relevant to Chinese culture, being able to do something around Chinese New Year, we delved into looking at what the year meant,” said Edison Chen, Founder and Creative Director, CLOT. “Designing a woman’s only side of this collaboration was very interesting for me because to do women’s stuff you can go there a little bit more.”
