Introducing Levi’s® Made In Japan For Fall 2014
Originally launched as an exclusive collection sold only in Japan, the Made in Japan collection, is being made available for denim aficionados in the UK. The line, which celebrates top-notch quality and expression through Japanese hand craftsmanship, is a collaboration between Levi’s® design team and Japan-based makers and artists.

The Fall 2014 Made in Japan line was inspired by the beauty of indigo and the inky dark blue hues found in the lakes, mountains, wildlife and big skies of California’s Yosemite Valley.
This theme results in limited-edition versions of the Levi’s® 501® and Levi’s® 513™ slim straight fit jeans as well as a Barstow Western Shirt, in a variety of inventive renditions and rinses, featuring gorgeous high-contrast finishes, snow bleaching techniques, reinforced repair patches, and intricate boro (Japanese folk fabric) detailing.
In addition to the Fall 2014 season marking the debut of the 501® within the Made in Japan collection, it also sees the first collaboration between Levi’s® and Okinawa-based tie-dye artist and visual colorist, Yogu (Yuichiro Koguro), who created an exclusive line of hand-printed t-shirts and wall hangings for the collection.

Yogu’s artwork for Levi’s® hinges on the motif of mandala, a Buddhist symbol that represents fusion and unity, expressing the idea that people and the universe are fundamentally linked. His dynamic and colorful prints appear in two tie-dye t-shirt designs and one tapestry design, all hand-dyed one by one, hammering home the intense craftsman quality behind Levi’s® Made in Japan collection.
Levi’s® Made in Japan products will be available in select Levi’s® stockist only.
