Paying homage to the artwork of the Manchester Sound era of the late 1980s, Levi’s Vintage Clothing has linked up with Central Station Design — the studio behind many of the album covers synonymous with the era — for a unique Spring/Summer 2021 collection.

Boasting a line-up of T-shirts, hoodies and outerwear, the collaboration reimagines artwork from a handful of iconic Happy Mondays records, like Squirrel and G‑Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile, the band’s first full-length album.

An oversized zip parka — dubbed the Freaky Parka — features a multicolour repeat pattern, while a hoodie with a blue and green block effect pays homage to Central Station’s artwork for the band’s first ever 12” single, Forty-Five EP.

To accompany the release that drops on March 5, Levi’s sat down with Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder for a chat about Central Station and how the artwork supported the band, which can be viewed below.

The Levi’s Vintage Clothing x Central Design Station Design collection launches on March 5 via the Levi’s webstore.
