If a thriving music and acting career isn’t enough, Justin Timberlake has just unveiled his collaboration with Levi’s. The always stylish man worked closely with the world wide denim & apparel brand to create the Fresh Leaves collection, featuring an urban twist on men’s everyday basics. This latest project correlates well with Timberlake’s newest album Man of The Woods, which was available to fans just a short few months ago. The album graphics and lyrics hold much inspiration from the outback and slower paced lifestyle. He’s not the only one this year to pull inspiration from a more natural lifestyle. Kanye West spent a few months in Montana on a ranch perfecting his album ye. Kanye’s album artwork, as well as Timberlake’s, depicted a modern capture of the great outdoors.
With the western trend in full swing this F/W season, Timberlake was very excited to take on this project of creating a collection that is somewhat based off of his most current songs. Levi’s is known for their high quality denim and classic pieces. Without disrupting the brand’s traditional aesthetic, Timberlake played around with prints, plaids, and textures. He wanted to incorporate “self expression” and allow a guy to “pair a flannel with some Adidas”. The combination of country casual and urban chic was somewhat hard to obtain at first, but he kept it simple with some really great pieces. The Fresh Leaves collaboration consists of trucker jackets, camouflage, and plaid shirts that can be added to almost any outfit.
It’s safe to say this collection will not only help his album, but hopefully lead to more collaborations in the fashion industry. Timberlake has worked with Jordans in the past and is completely open to anything that awaits in the future.
