Exclusive: We Preview The Opening Ceremony X Levi’s Collab-------
We’re not sure if it’s alchemy or a deal with the devil, but just about everything Opening Ceremony touches turns to gold. In the store’s new collaboration with Levi’s, however, most everything has turned to corduroy. When the results look good, we’re not about to complain. Levi’s gave Style.com a sneak preview of a few pieces from the mostly cord new collection, which hits select Levi’s and Opening Ceremony shops—including the latter’s forthcoming Ace Hotel location—later this month. The line, comprised of shirts, jackets, cutoffs, and pants, doesn’t mess with the simplicity that makes Levi’s great; the Opening Ceremony team merely tweaked the classics with pop colors (spring pastels like pink, lavender, and dusty blue, as well as our favorite, a mustardy shade called curry) and a few select nips and tucks. (The denim jacket [below] like one that you’d scour the racks to find at your local vintage shop, is lovingly broken in, and shrunken to bolero-ish proportions.) Look for them soon at a store—and, knowing their provenance, an after-hours party, under-the-radar-bar, or backstage lounge—near you.
OC x Levi’s cord shirt, $128; denim trucker jacket, $178; and 505 cutoff shorts, $148; available at select Opening Ceremony stores (beginning February 9), Levi’s Union Square San Francisco flagship and worldwide boutique stores (beginning February 19), and www.levi.com (beginning February 15).
