In October, Levi’s Vintage Clothing first unveiled its 2016 fall/winter range. This time, fans can get a better look at the abstract impressionist-inspired collection in a newly released lookbook. The American denim mainstay plunged into its archives to wrangle a handful of iconic pieces such as its Lot 67 Sack Coat, its 1950s Sportswear Tee as well as its Bay Meadows Sweatshirt that now boasts a more contemporary fit.

All in all, the assemblage is an homage to the era of 1940s American art that spawned revolutionary works from Clifford Still, Joan Mitchell, Barnett Newman and Jackson Pollock. More specifically, the range draws heavy influences from the legendary 9th Street Exhibition in New York City—a groundbreaking showcase which was helmed by acclaimed art dealer Leo Castelli back in 1951.

Browse through the collection above and purchase all pieces now at the official website of Levi’s Vintage Clothing.
