With colors in full bloom, Collina Strada has teamed up with Levi’s — again — in creating colorful denim for Spring 2022. This is Collina Strada and Levi’s second official collaboration.
Hillary Taymour, Creative Director of Collina Strada, is a strong advocate for social justice and sustainability. This collaboration with Levi’s is one of the many sustainable initiatives they have taken this month, such as their Earth Day Capsule collection and their recycled denim Spring 2022 collection.
Collina Strada and Levi’s Spring 2022 collection consists of garden-inspired, bright colored paint and rhinestone swatches on medium wash, vintage, upcycled Levi’s® 501® jeans and signature Levi’s® Trucker Jackets.
Using similar bright colors, (as seen in their previous collaboration but in the shape of stars), the swatches give meaning to Taymour’s social and environmental platform.
The vision behind this collection was to re-invent Levi’s classic pieces through sustainable practices such as using vintage and pre-existing denim with vibrant color swatches that are a running theme of Collina Strada’s Spring ‘22 collection. “In the studio, I was testing a dye pattern on a pair of Levi’s®,” Hillary said of the design.
She continued, “I saw how cute they were, and I was like, I have to make this in collaboration with Levi’s®.”
The swatches symbolize Taymour’s mission of using diversity and inclusion to help instigate social and environmental change. “I don’t think you can teach someone how to do the right thing in a situation if you’re not showing them a positive way to do it,” Taymour shared. The bright colors and shiny rhinestones give this collection an optimistic aura.
The collection is now available to shop on collinastrada.com.
