When Levi’s invited me over to their store in the Kammenstraat (we’ve been there before, remember?) to talk me through their collection of iconic pieces, I was all eyes and ears. In my book, nothing oozes class and elegance as a pair of properly fitting 501 jeans with a white tee and ladylike shoes. I tried on a few pairs – loved the lightly destroyed 501 for women – and then this denim vest caught my eye. As iconic as can be, the trucker vest is one of those classic pieces you can wear on so many occassions. I went for a men’s jacket because I wanted to create an effortless and oversized look and I’m pretty sure I’ll get a lot of wear out of this one.
This is my story…
My first pair of branded denim ever: guess what the little red tag said? Levi’s of course. I must have been around 10, on a trip to Wijnegem Shoppingcenter with the fam. Levi’s is such an iconic denim brand, and even at this mere age, I was happy to play around in my cool jeans. They were grey and I wore them to play hide-and-seek, to dance in and to fall flat on my face during a game of soccer. My mom and I always headed to the nearest Levi’s store when we’re in dire need of denim, and we never complained.
