If you’re looking for an excuse to make this a Southern California summer, here’s one: Levi’s® partnership with the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art to create and sell denim trucker jackets. The jackets, selling at MOCA, feature the work of ten artists from the museum's “Art in the Streets” exhibition.
Whether you’re a fan of Keith Haring or Revok, you’re bound to find one you like. There are only 50 of each design, and each jacket costs $250, with all of the proceeds going to MOCA.
KR’s Black Trucker – pictured above – is released this Saturday. Still to come are those by Revok on June 18, Shepard Fairey on July 2, Neck Face on July 16 and Keith Haring on Aug. 6. Each jacket goes on sale at MOCA at 11 a.m. on the day of its release.
Those artists whose truckers have already been relased are Chaz Bojorquez, Crash, Lady Pink, Kenny Scharf and Andre. And in case you've missed the images elsewhere, we've gathered them here for you below.
The jackets are being launched in chronological order of each artist's work, with an homage to the late, great Keith Haring as the final.
So, if you do head to SoCal, you could head home in style.
