Levi’s is teaming up with four-time Grand Slam singles champion and activist Naomi Osaka to launch a limited-edition denim collection made from vintage or upcycled denim. According to Sourcing Journal, Osaka has created four distinct denim pieces that reflect her sporty yet feminine style as well as her Japanese heritage.
There are two types of shorts in the collection: a vintage 501 jean short embellished with Y2K-worthy crystal fringe cascading down the sides and a knee-grazing long short with lace-up details on the back made from pairs of upcycled men’s jeans. A denim bustier made from reworked Levi’s Trucker jackets features a lace-up motif. The bustier has the iconic Type III Trucker jacket’s classic lines, flap pockets, and shank buttons, but in the shape and cut of a traditional corset-style bustier with a lace-up back. A denim kimono with a matching denim obi belt completes the look. The Levi’s x Naomi Osaka collection will be available exclusively on the Levi’s App on August 24 in the United States.
