Levi’s launches second denim collection with Naomi Osaka
Famed denim brand Levi’s has teamed up with four-time Grand Slam tennis champion and activist Naomi Osaka on the launch of a playful denim collection for Spring/Summer 2022.
The collection includes five new denim pieces that were inspired by original sketches created by Naomi. In particular, pieces feature contrasting denim washes, creative plays on proportion, and pieces made with 100 percent organically grown cotton.
The denim line up includes a mermaid skirt featuring a ruffled, high-low hemline, a denim halter top, and the oversized artist coat – a mid-length, wide-sleeved, drop-shoulder coat. Rounding out the collection is a cropped and puffed up zip bomber jacket, and the flower-bear laser print ’93 Naomi Jean, based off of a men’s 501 jean.
“I wanted to keep this collection fun and playful, and also include some pieces for everyone,” said Osaka. “I was trying to bring some light-heartedness with this collection as a reminder for us all to enjoy the life we’re living and not take things too seriously. Best of all, these pieces all make me feel super confident and comfortable because they’re all so flattering and fun to wear.”
The tennis player is no stranger to fashion, beauty or collaborations. In September, Osaka launched a skincare line ‘Kinlò' formulated specifically for people with melanated skin. Last summer, she also collaborated with Levi’s on a limited-edition womenswear line.
The collection will be available in select Levi's stores and on the brand's app, as of Monday.
