LEVI’S® ENGINEERED JEANS™ RETURN FOR SS19
Gone shall be the days of browsing the web for vintage finds. The legendary Levi’s® Engineered Jeans™ is back this season with a contemporary twist for the modern wardrobe. Building on their decidedly style-conscious and advanced design elements, innovation has paved the way for this coveted fashion item.
When they launched in 1999, Levi’s® Engineered Jeans™ were a massive success—popular not only for the way they fit, but also for their progressive style—and they’ve been something of a legend for Levi’s® ever since. Taking a forward-thinking approach to design, both comfort and freedom of movement are maximized – 3D knit technology and four-way stretch fabrication marries the traditional ergonomic twisted side seams and the darted yoke of the original collection
The special edition re-issue for Spring/Summer 2019 is still based on the “engineered concept”, while treasuring on research and modern design. “Engineered is the principle that is the foundation of both of these releases. We’re taking the concept of Levi’s® Engineered Jeans™ and experimenting with 3D knitting to see what it could be like to make the jeans of the future.”—Jonathan Cheung, Senior Vice President, Global Design at Levi’s®.
Levi’s® Engineered Knit™ – Along with Levi’s® Engineered Jeans™, there will also be the Levi’s® Engineered Knit™ for him. A first for Levi’s®, the 3D knit technology uses innovative construction techniques where the fabric is sewn as the garment is constructed, cutting the number of separate panels down from 10 to 5. This saves on both fabric waste and weave time, and reduces the total number of seams, providing extra comfort. Additionally, breathable panels are inserted in areas where you need it most. You’ll see it come to life in our Levi’s® Engineered Jeans Knit™ Joggers and Knit Shorts, as well as tees and Trucker Jackets to complete the look.
Paired together, these two releases are a celebration of Levi’s® innovation past and present. And they offer a glimpse of what the future of denim can be.
