In true Levi’s style, the front-man of Crooked Saints kicked off the Rock ‘n’ Roll style runway show with a live harmonica solo. With quirky offerings of an instant camera and even a skateboard on the runway as models showcased this seasons offering, the Levi’s runway opened in true rocker-chic style.
Being the trailblazers of denim, Levi’s renovated denim with detail with microprint shirts, western-style collar details and of course, studs. Women’s hemlines received a complete overhaul with their arc shaped ankle cuts.
We also saw the return of the boot-cut and even a season must-have, the skinny-boot-cut. Women’s wear, under the helm of stylist Marc Wasiak, took on a more edgy look with metallic washes, printed jeans and an acid washed circle skirt paired with espadrille heels or sneaker-stilettos and very structured tops.
Menswear centered on classic looks and Rock ‘n’ Roll style outfits; loose uppers with fitted bottoms. One model took an instant photo only to throw it into the crowd, and then returned on a skateboard in his second outfit. Levi’s is certainly making a statement this season.
Micro-printed chambray and denim shirts were paired with army green pants, the mankle was out in full force and denim vests paired with a pocket square featured on the runway.
Handkerchiefs were tucked into back pockets and feathers were braided into hair, a look quintessentially rock but styled for anyone. Denim was truly receiving the Levi’s rock ‘n roll treatment.
It wasn’t all mischief though, with classic men’s and women’s outfits displayed. Denim dresses were showcased in simple silhouettes with cane hats and men’s button down shirts where paired with bowler hats to slow the show down.
Leather featured alongside elegant summer dresses for women’s and pants for men’s. A look that wasn’t too Rock ‘n’ Roll but was enough to satisfy the inner Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Showcasing the casual elements of Spring/Summer, Levi’s presented a classic collection with outfits perfect for day and night, all season long.
MSFW wraps up this weekend with the final runways and workshops on until Sunday. Be sure to check out what’s going on around town.
