yes indeed, denim never goes out of style. but still, each year levi’s vintage clothing dives into its vast archives to come up with even more options to choose from, recreating iconic items that capture the spirit and heritage of the brand. for this coming season, levi's vintage clothing gains a distinct artistic edge as it channels the revolution of american art in the mid-1940s, when abstract expressionism suddenly blossomed new york city and captivated post-world war II america. to celebrate this groundbreaking artistic wellspring, levi's vintage clothing presents a collection around the so-called 9th street exhibition, a landmark show from 1951 in downtown new york that redefined the contemporary avant-garde. each look of this levi’s vintage clothing look collection reimagines the exhibition and all those artists who showed their work there, including jackson pollock, willem de kooning and helen frankenthaler. mind you, some of the items come with surprisingly detailed paint splatter and distressing, shown here are three pieces form the collection that we particularly like.
