Rocket City

Levi’s® Vintage Clothing Spring/Summer ‘19

February 16, 2019

On October 4th, 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite. The world watched the sky with shock and intrigue. The Space Race had officially begun.

 

This event was a quantum leap in humankind’s technological progress. It was the driving force behind the creation of NASA and motivated a generation of engineers. Kids were inspired to become astronauts, testing homemade rockets in their backyards in hopes of one day reaching space. For some, this hobby would become a reality. They would go on to work for NASA, where they built the spacecraft that would eventually put man on the moon.

 

For Spring/Summer 2019, Levi’s® Vintage Clothing pays tribute to those thrillseekers and space explorers who made their dreams a reality in Rocket City. Here’s a look at some of our favorite styles from the new collection.
