ERL x Levi’s Is Finally Happening IRL

Dior collaboration? Check. Next up on the list, Eli Russell Linnetz ERL links up with iconic denim brand Levi’s.

ERL x Levi’s offers up a capsule collection of collaborative denim pieces oozing effortless, Cali cool — something the two Californian brands know best.

Leading the way is a pair of collaborative 501 jeans, with the timeless Levi’s jeans getting ERL’s playful spin with slits at the side and frayed detailing. Who knew the 501 could get more breathable? ERL did.

Similar distressed finishes show up on the collection’s mini skirt, flared jeans (skinny jeans who?), and extra-roomy board shorts cut from overalls. 

It’s also worth mentioning that Levi’s traditional tags are printed for the ERL x Levi’s collaboration. 

ERL x Levi’s also features a sherpa trucker (short and duster-length), fitted denim top, slightly heavyweight overshirt, denim dress — all stamped with that familiar neon-colored ERL embroidery as seen in the initial teaser.

“Our Levi’s x ERL collection has a very grunge, casual, and skater energy,” Linnetz said in a press release. “It’s easy to throw on for everyday wear but it’s still identifiable with a clear voice and signature.”

Mark your calendars, ERL and Levi’s fanatics. ERL x Levi’s is scheduled to release on September 6 on Levi’s website and select physical locations as well Dover Street Market.

The collaboration makes sense given Linnetz’ fascination with all things Americana and the nostalgic vibe that pervades everything that ERL does. And Levi’s, with power collaborator Leo Gamboa helming its joint efforts, has been dishing heavyweight drops with partners like Crocs, Studio Ghibli, and JJJJound.
