Levi’s and Stüssy collaborate for 150th anniversary of 501 Jeans
Stüssy & Levi’s have launched their latest collaborative collection, celebrating their brand identities and shared roots in California.
Stüssy was born from the Southern California surf scene in the late ’80s and early ’90s whilst Levi’s was founded in San Francisco 170 years ago. 2023 marks the 150th anniversary of Levi’s 501 Jeans, one of the most enduring icons of global style.
The range from Stüssy & Levi’s features a pair of 501 Jeans and a modified Type II Trucker Jacket – two classic Levi’s silhouettes reimagined with Stüssy’s signature design aesthetic.
The 501 Jean comes in a rugged, worn indigo wash and are an original fit jean cut with a straight leg, 5-pocket styling. The jeans also feature an embossed Stüssy & Levi’s motif on the front left and back right legs, plus a custom co-branded back patch combining the Levi’s Two Horse Pull and Stüssy logos.
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of 501 Jeans, the Stüssy & Levi’s 501 includes a special edition pocket bag print and anniversary pocket flasher.
The collection also includes a Type II Trucker Jacket, which has a rugged, worn indigo wash to match the 501 Jeans. The jacket is modified with a boxy fit, relaxed armhole, added welt pockets, and includes a corduroy collar, Baja-inspired pocket bags and inside lining with Stüssy’s eight-ball logo printed.
The back of the jacket features an embossed motif, merging a classic Levi’s button shank graphic with Stüssy’s subversive Double S design.
The collection will be available for purchase on both ecommerce stores, select Levi’s and Stüssy stores, as well as some Dover Street Market locations. The jeans are priced at £170 and the jacket is priced at £235.
