For Fall/Winter 2018, Levi’s Vintage Clothing drew influence from the iconic 1978 film Rockers, noting the colorful reggae, dub and dancehall styles showcased throughout the movie. Blending elderly Jamaican tastes with contemporary styling was a key factor for head designer Paul O’Neill, who traveled to Jamaica to further develop the inspiration into solidified concepts.

What results is a mélange of washed denim, easygoing layering pieces and bold patterns, ranging from yellow and green houndstooth to stripes inspired by the Jamaican flag. Subverted American staples pervade the collection, like a trucker jacket reimagined with panels of rainbow-hued denim and trousers in bright yellow or red shades. Other jackets are revised with corduroy detailing, with one chambray overshirt sporting handwarmer pockets near the hem. Base layers, like relaxed-cut crewneck tees and trim, geometrically-patterned knits, are styled with worn and faded jeans that reinforce the worn-in aesthetic with plenty of rips, frays and patches.

Expect the range to hit Levi’s Vintage Clothing’s web store shortly.

Most recently, Levi’s joined UNITED ARROWS‘s Poggy for an exclusive collaborative drop.
