Levis Announce SS21 Collection With Clarks Originals
Levis together with Clarks is bringing back the ’80s with their brand new ‘Loose Fix’ collection! Inspired by that ’80s Manchester style of flared jeans, oversized parkas and Clarks Wallabees, this 3-piece special edition collection features classic Clarks silhouettes and iconic crepe sole, designed in conjunction with Levi’s seasonal “Loose Fix” pastel colour palette. The collaboration is available to purchase today so head over to the Levi’s site to avoid missing out!
When we were putting together the ‘Loose Fix’ collection, we thought it would be amazing to collaborate with Clarks® to coincide with it. They were really big in Manchester in the ‘80s and throughout the UK. I’ve probably been wearing them myself for the last 30 years. It’s just a really old school approach to making shoes that are timeless, shoes people will always love. These are all traditional Clarks® shoes with a contemporary approach to colour.Paul O’Neill, Head Designer for Levi’s® Vintage Clothing at Levi Strauss & Co.
