Denim brand LEVI’S teams up with tennis superstar and an ambassador for social change NAOMI OSAKA for a four-piece limited edition collection made entirely from upcycled and repurposed materials. The collection fuses sporty, feminine, and unexpected elements to celebrate Osaka’s style, heritage, and her love of denim. It features four pieces: the denim kimono, lace-up short, crystal fringe short, and trucker jacket bustier.
The sustainability aspect was super important to me. I love that every piece in the collection has been recycled or repurposed from old stock. I always loved wearing kimonos when I was a kid. So, to be able to do it in denim felt really different and a bit unexpected – Naomi Osaka
