The collaboration consists of three staple denim pieces —a button-down shirt, jeans and a shirt dress — made from upcycled vintage Levi’s and repurposed denim.
The upcycled designs are an ode to the longevity and heritage of Levi’s 501 jeans while incorporating GANNI’s playful signatures and hero shapes, such as patchwork, voluminous sleeves and Peter Pan collars.
All styles in the collection are created to be versatile in use and feature multiple styling options, including features such as as detachable collars and adjustable waistlines.
This capsule marks the first rental only collection for both brands and aims to explore a new circular approach to fashion, as the collection has been designed with the intention to be “worn by many, but not owned by anyone”.
Ditte Reffstrup, Creative Director, GANNI, said: “Working with an iconic brand like Levi’s is a dream come true. I still have a pair of 501’s that I’ve had since I was a teen. These pieces are so versatile. You can wear them high or low waisted and style with a detachable belt.
“The beauty of good denim is it just gets better over time. This partnership is all about sharing that love for great denim and passing it on. We handpicked each pair of vintage 501’s with Levi’s for the project to upcycle and give them new life. It’s been such a special and personal process.”
