The Valentino x Levi’s Vintage 517 collaboration, as seen on the runway in Valentino’s SS21 show, has launched exclusively today on NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER.
Each piece of denim is a vintage unaltered original that has been upcycled from previously-worn 517 jeans, resulting in Valentino’s interpretation of the original 1969 Levi’s 517 boot cut jeans.
Characterised by one-of-a-kind peculiarities, each piece bears a special label that shows its individual number in the very limited quantities available – just 517 units worldwide.
NET-A-PORTER Senior Market Editor, Libby Page, said: “The Levi’s for Valentino collaboration is arguably the most covetable denim to own this season. We love how Pierpaolo Piccioli has reimagined the timeless 517 style to make it fresh and relevant for today. It’s an immediate and clever response to what our customer wants right now and we are thrilled to be the exclusive global partner for the launch.”
Daniel Todd, Buying Manager at MR PORTER, added: “As if the original styles weren’t iconic enough, these new interpretations breathe life into a classic model, championing the craftsmanship and design we know our customers will respond to.”
