Levi’s Made & Crafted Focuses on Bohemian Style and Desert Hues for Spring

Thank you for joining Sourcing Journal & industry leaders at our SOURCING SUMMIT NY, as we discussed the most pressing issues of the day. View the Summit on demand through Jan. 2, and stay tuned for the upcoming Companion Report.

Spring has arrived for Levi’s Made & Crafted line, and the heritage brand is flaunting warm weather looks with experimental colors, geographical influences and sustainable fibers.

The Spring/Summer 2020 collection moves further in sustainability. The line boasts denim made with Tencel x Refibra, a fiber sourced from responsibly managed forests and recycled cotton scraps; cottonseed hemp, which uses less water and pesticides in its production than cotton; and organically grown cotton, which employs cultivation systems that replenish and maintain soil fertility.

Named “From the Casbah to California,” the collection tells a story of soft desert and seaside hues found in bohemian destinations like Morocco and California. That, combined with a contemporary street style construction and Western accents, sets a cool and laid-back tone for the line known for its historical yet progressive designs.

“This California Casbah collection is clean and modern,” said Nicolle Arbour, Levi’s Made & Crafted global design director. “We’ve been looking at our mid-century archives and referencing those more and more, and bringing in more feminine, fashion-forward silhouettes. And we’re doing it with a color palette that’s all about warm terra-cottas and desert pinks.”

The collection offers several monochromatic looks, including a clay denim set comprised of a relaxed-fitting denim jacket and high-rise wide leg jeans, and a lime yellow kaftan dress and matching cropped Trucker jacket. Other highlights include the Cinch Trucker, a button-down denim dress with cropped sleeves in marble pink, and the Palmer Overcoat, a long jean jacket adorned with floral designs.

New silhouettes include The Column, Levi’s new high-waisted, relaxed fit that’s slightly narrower than the Barrel, its wide-leg counterpart.
