Junya Watanabe MAN and Levi’s have teamed up once again to release a pair of custom 508 jeans for the fall. In keeping the 508′s signature slim, tapered silhouette, Junya applies its own aesthetic by twisting its front seams as well as adding rear yoke paneling and leg darting. Additional details include contrasting white stitching on its rear pockets, a zip fly and a leather waist patch, a Levi’s hallmark.

These collaborative jeans can be purchased now through Canadian retailer HAVEN.

Levi’s® x Hypebeast Railside Conversations: Photographers Kat Irlin & Sonya Yu

Levi’s® and Hypebeast united two creatives of differing fields to talk about key themes such as identity, inspiration and creative process. In an animated back and forth conversation, they were able to discuss several key themes in their work and their creative process. Their discussion was captured while examining creativity as part of Station to Station, a public art project made possible by Levi’s®.

Photographers Kat Irlin of New York City and Sonya Yu of San Francisco have both attained considerable success through social media and Instagram. While both are relative newcomers to the world of photography, the democratic landscape of social media has allowed their talents to gain immense traction, not to mention several hundreds of thousand followers between both of them. For both, a corporate career may have been in their cards but the ease of sharing and visual creation at the hands of a simple and handy cell phone camera has provided a unique breadth of opportunity.

In the second installment of Levi’s® x Hypebeast Railside Conversations, Kat and Sonya discussed their differing approaches to creating and how they envision their futures playing out at the hands of their relatively new found success as well as their Instagram followers.
