Levi’s Develops Way to Manufacture Jeans Using 100% Recycled Water


Article via Ecouterre: Levi Strauss has developed a new way to make jeans using 100 percent recycled water. The denim manufacturer, which applied the first-of-its-kind process to 100,000 pairs of women’s jeans during a test run, says it saved some 12 million liters of agua, or enough to fill nearly five Olympic-size swimming pools. The technique, according to Levi’s, is the result of a new, third-party-verified water-recycling standard designed to ease the stress of garment production on freshwater supplies.

One of the company’s key factories, located in southern China, worked with Levi’s to engineer a system that treats and recovers all the water used in the finishing process for subsequent runs. “This water recycling can happen over and over, significantly reducing the overall amount of water used to make our products,” says Reza Hosseini, manager of environmental site and compliance assessment at Levi’s. “As long as the water meets our standards to deliver the quality you expect from our brands, it can be recycled multiple times.”

Till now, there has been a dearth of standards for water recycling and reuse in the apparel industry, adds Hosseini. “This is a company and industry first,” he says. “And we believe this innovation can help change the way our supplier factories use water.”

Denim and the Oscars: A Look at Jeans in Cinema


To celebrate the Oscars this Sunday night, Levis whipped up a fun retrospective of denim cameos in famous cinema throughout the years. From Audrey Hepburn “wearing the pants” in her relationship in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to the incredible style in West Side Story, we’re pretty sure you’ll recognize some of these iconic moments in jean history:

“It’s Oscar time. That means dazzling gowns, tailored tuxes and … denim?

Yep! While it’s not often associated with the red carpet, iconic indigo has a definitive place in Hollywood when it comes to the films themselves. Since the 1950s, onscreen jeans have created a cinematic archive of popular styles over the years, setting trends as they record them.

In honor of the 86th Academy Awards, which is set to air this Sunday, we present a look at 12 films featuring blue jean styling that made the Academy—and audiences everywhere—proud:” Click to view

Rihanna Wears Louis Vuitton Boyfriend Jeans On VOGUE March Cover


Rihanna is featured on the March issue of Vogue—the same one that has a very innovative new kind of ad placed in it by Gap. She’s looking carefree and spirited in Louis Vuitton boyfriend jeans (click for a similar pair) and a sheer black beaded top, along with neutral-hued makeup and a choppy short hairstyle. We’re digging it in comparison to her usual less jovial appearance. What do you think?

Clothes You Can Live In: Gap Reimagines The Classics


Gap‘s Lived-In global marketing campaign features emerging and talented young artists including musicians, singers, actors and photographers wearing their authentic, worn-in Gap staples: youthful interpretations of classic, casual styles.

The “Lived-In” attitude is brought to life by a cast of emerging and talented young artists including musicians, singers, actors and photographers. The campaign includes Trinidadian-born American recording artist Theophilus London; English singer-songwriters Birdy and Anna Calvi; American actors RJ Mitte and Julia Garner; Swedish photographer Lina Scheynius; and American singer-songwriter and record producer Ernest Green (performing under the stage name Washed Out).

A second interesting component to the campaign includes an ad in Vogue magazine’s March issue: a first-ever tactile fabric print ad, which includes a fabric logo made from the cotton of a worn-in tee, driving home the idea of clothes you can live in.

Disaster Evaded: Denim Therapy Repairs Ripped Hems


Winter in the city can do a number on your jeans. Even if you don’t end up slipping and falling down the subway stairs, the ice, salt, and various elemental hazards can leave the hems of your jeans a mess. We received a pair of winter-inflicted jeans recently, with hems rendered frayed and worn. We were able to restore them back to their original glory in no time. Check the before and after below.

It’s Just A Perfect Day In Joe’s Jeans Newest Campaign


Joe’s Jeans released their spring campaign in a new video titled “Just A Perfect Day”. The protagonists are liberated New Yorkers who live against the grain of society’s standards, which in some cases means becoming a runaway bride (with jeans hidden below a wedding dress), and doing the morning “walk of shame”, without any shame at all. Joe’s wants to encourage their customers to let go of the standards for how we should be living, and start living up to our own personal standards. What does that mean? Well, we suspect it might cause a few cab riders to veer off course and do what they really want to do with their day.
