As global ambassadors for the Levi’s brand, NewJeans has been celebrating the ongoing 150th anniversary of Levi’s 501 jeans, one of the most enduring icons of global style and the original template from which all other jeans have descended. The wildly adored South Korean K-pop girl group and the brand are extending the celebration with a new campaign promoting the power and joy of authentic self-expression. With a new range of 501 fits and seasonal looks, NewJeans and Levi’s are encouraging fans to express their unique style by showcasing different ways to customize Levi’s 501 jeans and really make them your own.
Created with Haus Tailors and other Levi’s artist partners, the campaign features one-of-a-kind takes on classic 501 fits to demonstrate the creative potential of the 501 jeans as a canvas for authentic self-expression. At Levi’s Tailor Shops, fans can add their own embroidery designs, patches, pleats, and embellishments to 501 Shorts, 501 ‘81 Jeans, 501Cropped Jeans, 501 ‘90s jeans and 501 Original jeans. With special embroidery designs and patches from Japanese and Korean tailors, including Harajuku Tailor Shop and Garosugil Tailor Shop, fans can go to Levi’s Tailor Shops to create their completely original 501 interpretations. Through special rips and repairs, 501 Original Jeans can also be made to look worn in and thrifted as well as ultra baggy. Of course, fans from all walks of life are welcome to mix and match pieces to create their most distinct looks.
To accompany the campaign, a fun new brand film shows NewJeans choosing 501 options, customizing their pieces, and completing their looks with their own unique accessories and styling. At the end, they turn to the audience to ask, “how will you wear yours?” The film can be watched through Levi’s official Youtube page.
