Levi’s launched their RED NY pop up shop on February 3rd and it will be open for a month. The pop-up will be the only retailer of Levi’s new RED collection in the US. The concept behind the RED collection is to reinvent and create new aesthetics for the classic jean, each collection focusing on a theme. The collection is the first from the brand since 2007.
This season’s styles are deeply rooted in Levi’s history, particularly styles from the 1870s and 1880s. During this time, fits were looser and rounded, features that were meant to protect the body and be worn in a variety of climates. Wool and blanket linings were commonly found in jeans during this time, also a feature meant for functionality. The latest Red collection has drawn inspiration from both of these elements and incorporated them into the line.
The pop up shop is currently located in the Meatpacking District near the Levi’s store at 58-60 9th Ave. The collection will launch abroad and be sold in England, Europe, and Japan.
There are very few commercials that have been embedded in my memory and from time to time replay in my head. One of those commercials is this one by Levi’s. Everything about it is just amazing and on point to reality when it comes to denim. I don’t think there is one person that would part with their favorite pair, whether it be memories that they hold or the fit.
Not only is the reality aspect of this something that I like, but the process of how he mocks his pair for the giving away present. From the flicking of the tooth brush to the stencil of the paint spots, the attention of getting them perfect is awesome. How many of you remember this commercial from back in 2005?
Zac Efron made his way to an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ in West Hollywood, California last week. He seemed to grab a lot of attention as he walked into the studios.
Zac wore his old Levi’s denim jacket with shearling which he wore with dark grey skinny jeans. We haven’t seen him out in this jacket in a while, I think he wears it really well though as it suits his style. I do prefer the outfit he wore previously, but it definitely shows how versatile this jacket is!

Even though I am not a fan of the relaxed fit for myself, I do think they suit Charlie very well. When it comes to style, I think it is better to wear what you are comfortable with than what is on trend. When you feel good, your look will be taken to a different level than any “in” piece will take it. And ironically, the baggy style was all the rage this season at men’s fashion week. Will you skinny jean devotees be switching it up to baggier styles? You can click here to purchase these jeans from the 7 for All mankind website for $189.
