Summer appropriate releases include a newly introduced sunglasses collaboration from PLEASURES x Akila Eyewear, Stüssy’s “Beach Gear” collection, and sports-themed offerings from Warren Lotas.

Poggy x Levi’s FW18 Collection

Looking towards the upcoming Fall/Winter season, Levi’s Made & Crafted tapped Japanese creative Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi for a rework of vintage looks. Along with drawing from the United Arrows & Sons creative director’s inspirations from fusing streetwear staples with American workwear, James Dean’s timeless style serves as a main point of exploration. Sifting through Levi’s archives, Poggy picked an array of WWII-era clothing to fuel the heritage collaboration. Notable pieces in the capsule include a modern take on the “Steve McQueen” denim pant, revamped with a tapered fit and bowtie detail on the pockets. Updated button-ups, fitted overalls, a yellow sack coat, and caps complete with Poggy and Levi’s branding on a leather tag round out the special collection.
