Levi’s, the brand that created the first-ever blue jean for women in 1934, has come up with its line of jeans for women that not only has perfect fit but is also especially tailored for Asian women’s lifestyles. This collection was showcased in a fashion show featuring Asian superstar Vanness Wu in Manila.
Aside from showcasing the new collection, Nic Versloot, Managing Director of Levi’s in ANZ and Southeast Asia, said that they wanted to engage emotionally. “Because it’s not just about product,” he explained. “It’s about showing the vibe and connecting with people emotionally, because that’s what makes Levi’s a stronger brand than others. We have this Live in Levi’s campaign, where people tell us about how they live their lives in Levi’s. So we’re going to combine the two things: Show the collection but also refer to the campaign.”Below are the things we loved about this collection:
1. They have a comfortable fit.
The key styles of women were identified by the Levi’s brand global design team, “obsessively working to optimize the latest fabric innovations and slimming technologies,” resulting into “the perfect fitting jean for each body type.”
Designed for Asian women, these jeans have “slimmer thigh, flattering leg, and a contoured seat for a little lift.” The styles are 711 Skinny, 712 Slim, 714 Straight, 715 Bootcut, and 721 High Rise Skinny.
2. They’re designed to fit Asian women’s lifestyles.
After perfecting the fit, Levi’s made sure that these jeans could keep up with Asian women’s lifestyles. This latest collection is in fact, inspired by the idea that “behind every great woman is a great pair of jeans.”
“We’re targeting different uses [for different occasions],” explained Nic. “If you want to go on a hot date, maybe you’d wear skinny or super skinny jeans. If you’re just chilling with friends, flat shoes and a straight fit is more appropriate. So we really have a range that [is tailored] for different occasions.”
3. Alicia Keys loves it.
Aside from Alicia showing her talent and style through the brand, she also lent her voice by singing “28,000 Days,” an exclusive song that is the soundtrack of the campaign.
“We chose her not only because she loves the brand, but she’s a great role model for young women who want to be empowered and feel that they can achieve,” explained Nic. “She stands for a lot of things—the same values that we have as a brand.”
