Valentino made its MFW debut with a surprise collaboration with Levi’s. For the project, the Italian brand has reimagined the 517 model that became popular in the 1960s.
“Levi’s and Valentino share the revitalization of a timeless and inclusive aesthetic experience that becomes more meaningful than ever,” Levi’s says in an official press release.
Valentino’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, continues to defend the idea of resignification, which Levi’s describes as “giving new value to symbols, ideas, places, atmospheres that come from different eras but are still relevant to the contemporary scene.” The collaboration also shows that jeans are still relevant next season.
The pair of jeans from the Valentino x Levi’s collaboration is unisex and will be available next year.
