Initially, not much was known about the LEGO + Levi’s collaboration but we now have the official images and prices of the upcoming product line that will see Levi’s compete with Uniqlo in the LEGO wearables arena.
The launch will see a vintage stonewash Levi’s® Trucker Jacket, a Dad Crop Trucker Jacket, 501® ’93 Straight Jeans, and a lineup of hoodies, crewneck sweatshirts and other accessories.
Thanks to PR Times, we have a handful of prices and some product variations that we haven’t seen before from Japan. I’ve converted them so we can approximate the prices in our regions.
One of the key features behind this collaboration is the yellow 6×6 flexible ‘plate’ where you can decorate your LEGO wearables with LEGO DOTS tiles and accessories.
It may be a small canvas but there is a multitude of designs that one could come up with.
As I mentioned in the earlier post about LEGO + Levi’s, there will be a packet of LEGO DOTs tiles that will be distributed during the launch. The word is still out on how they will be distributed but I’m quite confident that it will be a gift with purchase of some kind.
And LEGO actually made a 1×1 exclusive Levi’s tile for the occasion.
According to PR Times, the LEGO + Levi’s launch will take place in October. There is no indication on whether this is a global rollout or if it is specific to Japan only.
There is a LEGO + Levi’s landing page on LEGO.com but there isn’t much information on it though you might want to keep an eye out. I will update when I get more information.
Good hunting everyone!
LEGO Group x Levi’s®
Wearable Art. Celebrating Limitless Imagination.
Who doesn’t love LEGO® bricks? And who doesn’t have a fond LEGO memory from their childhood (or even adulthood)? Whether you build from instructions, or dream up something from your imagination, LEGO building is the ultimate platform for creative experimentation and development.
And of course, no one loves creativity and playfulness—as well as infinite customizability—more than Levi’s®. Which is exactly why the two iconic brands have teamed up for a special Levi’s® and LEGO Group collection.
“This is such a fun collaboration celebrating self-expression, creativity and nostalgia,” says Karyn Hillman, Chief Product Officer for Levi Strauss & Co. “It’s Levi’s® and the LEGO Group coming together to co-create something really special and new, but undeniably familiar. With the customizable baseplates, Levi’s® is now literally a new blank canvas for LEGO play.”
Exclusive to the collection, the collaboration features the first-ever flexible LEGO baseplate. It’s a pliable LEGO silicone panel onto which fans can create their own customized designs using LEGO DOTS, a new concept that was introduced by the LEGO Group earlier this year. Sewn directly on the garment, anyone can create their own design using the mosaic-like tiles that “snap” onto the baseplates. The baseplate will be available as a customizable patch on a vintage stonewash Levi’s® Trucker Jacket, a Dad Crop Trucker Jacket, 501® ’93 Straight Jeans, and a lineup of hoodies, crewneck sweatshirts, and accessories. Customization pieces from the collection will come with a Levi’s® and LEGO Group branded bag of 110 LEGO® DOTS, so that fans have a playful canvas for self-expression with endless options. Graphic tees are also included in the collection and while they won’t carry the customizable baseplates, they feature unique co-branded graphics that will excite fans of both brands.
LEGO elements also appear in product details across the collection including primary colored shank buttons in yellow, red, green, blue, white and black. The Levi’s® standard leather patch has also been converted to a flexible red LEGO patch.
“There’s so much passion and energy in this partnership, working with the creative and iconic Levi’s® brand is inspiring, and is pushing the way we innovate the LEGO brand experience,” says Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President and Head of Product and Marketing Development at LEGO Group.
It’s the deep emotional connection you have to your favorite pair of Levi’s® jeans, combined with the love and fondness you have for LEGO play, offering one mind-blowing collection of nostalgia, playfulness and creativity.
