In honor of 501® Day, and to celebrate the millions of different ways people customize their Levi’s®, we’ve teamed up with Karla Welch, renowned stylist and founder of xkarla, to craft a special collection of jeans, jackets, shirts and more.
Although we’re sold out on levi.com, you can still find this collection in our SoHo and Santa Monica stores (as well as place phone orders to have products shipped).
For Karla, working with Levi’s® was an exercise in creating pieces that will be iconic for generations to come. “I wanted to imagine what the future of vintage was,” she says. “If people inhabit Mars 200 years from now, what are the kids going to wear? This idea of creating something that would eventually become an iconic piece of vintage clothing is the basis of the whole collection.”
Without further ado, here are our featured creations from the collection worn by some of Karla’s celebrity friends. Note: they’re made in extremely limited supply, so get yours before they’re gone.
A reconstructed take on the original. Slightly baggy with extra panels.
Created by combining one baggy fit and one slimmer fit. (Note: Not part of the Levi’s x karla collection.)
The bomber jacket silhouette with a customized edge.
A Trucker Jacket stitched onto a pair of 501® Jeans. The best of both worlds, all in one.
In addition to partnering with Karla, we’re making a donation to support the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund™.
