We LOVE denim and we LOVE art, so when we heard about the collaboration of Levi’s and MOCA, we were instantly smitten. This Saturday, Levi’s classic denim trucker jacket is getting released with a twist—patriotic artwork done personally by famed graffiti artist Shepard Fairey. When asked his thoughts on why the collab focuses on the trucker jacket, Fairey points out how it “is a significant piece in that it’s one of the few fashion icons that has managed to mean something important to almost every demographic and ideology of youth culture movement since it was first introduced.”
Be sure to not miss out on this perfect opportunity to show the world your love for both the great ol’ USA and the world of street art. Be part of the lucky few and grab one of the50 limited edition jackets that will be available via mocastore.org on July 2.
