The latest collection from Levi’s Streetwear takes its inspirations from Northern Californian skate and surf culture, filtering them through a definitively street aesthetic. For Fall/Winter 2012, the Europe-only release includes a selection of garments designed with maximum mobility, comfort and durability in mind. Staying close to the legendary denim label’s roots, Levi’s Streetwear drew from San Francisco’s rich heritage and gold mining history for a range of Americana-referencing tops — the Modern Work Shirt and Raglan Shirt among them, along with one-pocket and graphic tees. Meanwhile, bottoms are updated in skate-ready makeups. Featuring the 111 slim and 222 skinny fits, Levi’s Streetwear denim for the season features light-weight stretch fabrics and reinforced bar tacks and seams, while STA – PREST® Slim Fit trousers virtually eliminate the need for ironing. The new Levi’s offshoot will also attempt to create its own iconography with black tab labeling and two-horse patches featured throughout the garment range. The new Levi’s Streetwear collection for Fall/Winter 2012 will be available exclusively at select European skate shops this month, including locations in London, Antwerp, Barcelona, Frankfurt and Copenhagen.
