Shepard Fairey's Obey collaboration with Levi's debuts today
Overshadowed by all the hoopla, Fairey has headed a clothing label called Obey for eight years. And Obey has partnered with Levi’s for a collaboration of affordable jeanswear debuting today at Levi’s flagship store on Santa Monica’s 3rd Street Promenade (select pieces are available online on both Levi's and Obey websites).
Items range from a skinny black 511 jeans ($128) to a distressed denim jacket (left, $148) with a built-in black terry hood, both come festooned with Obey patches.
The Obey x Levi's graphic T-shirts combine Fairey’s trademark Andre the Giant logo fused with Levi’s batwing ($34.50).
If you ever had fantasies of tagging public property, you can stoke your inner graffiti artist with a flannel shirt (right, $118) from the collection that features “spray-paint drip" details.
The collection runs from $34.50 to $148.00 and a custom Obey bandanna comes with each item except the T-shirts.
Tonight in New York, Fairey is also staging a live art installation outside the Times Square Levi’s Store.
