Artist Shepard Fairey, who created the infamous President Obama Hope poster, is teaming up with Levi’s. The artist has been commissioned, in conjunction with his clothing line, Obey clothing, to create limited edition jeans as well as graphic posters for Levi’s. The collection will feature distressing and other details inspired by Fairey’s own collection of Levi’s. The Obey and Levi’s capsule collection will be launched today, October 29th. The line, priced from $35-148 will be available exclusively at Levi’s stores and some pieces online at Obeyclothing.com.
The line will feature over-dyed black skinny jeans with “Obey” patches, 514 Slim jeans, the jeans that Shepard Fairey wears, but modernized and featuring Obey patches, two denim jackets, flannel shirts and tees.
In addition, Fairey will debut 4 unique street art style posters outside the New York City Times Square Levi’s store. These posters will be available as a free gift with purchase at the Times Square and Soho stores, Union Square in San Francisco, Santa Monica and Chicago.
This collection will be a reflection of both Fairey’s personal style and his art, “I’ve always felt that keeping my art bold, simple and refined was a way to cut through the clutter, and it’s a formula that Levi’s has been using for decades that keeps them accessible and populist yet stylish and relevant,” said Shepard Fairey. “The posters I created for Levi’s are returns to the roots of my style: one side with an industrial propaganda poster feel that connects with the heritage of Levi’s as a brand for workers, and the reverse side reflecting my other biggest influence, punk rock, and the connection of Levi’s to punk and rock in general.”

I thought I would put together an outfit each week using Polyvore. I just fell in love with the site and it really lets your creative side out. I chose a more of a Rock Chic style outfit this week using a pair of Siwy Jeans. I got the inspiration from Kate Beckinsale but I changed it around a lot. I will be styling a different outfit each week and I hope you like them. This ensemble I put together features: Siwy Hannah jeans in Tambourine ∆ Jenni Kayne Pleat Bootie ∆ Hellz Bellz Boundless NY Grey T-Shirt ∆ Juicy Couture Tiger print T-Shirt ∆ Yves Saint Laurent oversized square accetate sunglasses ∆ Ball N Chains necklace ∆ Silver and black Zebra curved bangle. Just click on the name of the items to purchase them. Some of them are very expensive, others really cheap. It just depends on your style. You can pick between the two T-Shirts, I think I like the Juicy Couture one the most.

Some of Hollywood’s elite showed up for the U2 concert at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Paris was with Doug wearing her J Brand Jeans again. Other stars such as David Beckham, Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber made it out for the event, as did Kellan Lutz, Ben Stiller, Demi Moore and Colin Farrell. What better to rock out at a concert in other than denim?!
