In a new video from Levi’s Made and Crafted, Design Director Miles Johnson discusses the inspirations for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, as well as the materials, fabrics and construction that went into its making. Dubbed “Painted Desert,” the collection features faded bright colors, reminiscent of the sand and sun, or even cozy striped blankets. Johnson stresses the importance of a garment that’s cleanly finished, as the absence of even minor flaws like loose threads translate into enhanced comfort. Details like copper rivets, genuine leather patches and concealed arcuates contribute to the high standards that are intertwined with the brand’s identity. Check out the video below.
