Every season Levi’s drops a fantastic hardcover lookbook for their Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) collection. For Spring Summer 2019 they created again an edition which looks amazing. Below some snap shots of the lookbook.
A Farewell To White Oak
For over a century, the Cone Mill White Oak plant in Greensboro North Carolina produced the denim fabrics for Levi’s. Unfortunately White Oak closed their doors by the end of 2017. Read all about it here.
The fabrics from White Oak became legendary for it’s quality, craftsmanship and look and feel. Each weave carried the spirit of denim history in the warps and wefts. From the miners, cowboys, famers, to the flower power period. The shrink-to-fit fabrics were the last that came off the old shuttle looms.
To celebrate the legacy of White Oak this season Levi’s Vintage Clothing brings two special limited edition pieces: Type 2 Trucker Jacket and a pair of 501XX jeans from 1955. Both items are made with 6 different shrink-to-fit fabrics from the last 100 years. The fabrics refer to the 1890’s, 1930’s, 1940’s, 1950’s, 1960′, and 1970’s. The fabrics are all selvedge and vary from 9oz to 12oz. The different fabrics are giving the items a mixed blue look.
The main theme of the new Levi’s Vintage Clothing collection for Spring Summer 2019 is Rocket City. The inspiration of the collection comes from the period, the 4th of October 1957, when the Soviet Union launched the first artificial satellite. The world watched the sky with shock and intrigue. The Space Race was officially started.
The new LVC collection pays tribute to those thrillseekers and space explorers who made their dreams a reality in Rocket City.
