Following the release of their much-anticipated 3rd record called “I See You”, English indie band The xx has been touring the world, starting from their “Night + Day” run of live gigs in London. The affair is similar to a festival that the band curates themselves, as they bring along supporting acts and other artists for a week of music and art-related activities. It has been considered as one of the best-selling events in Brixton Academy.
Meanwhile, the London-hailing trio has also kept an active presence online and they have been known for collaborating with high fashion crowds in the likes of Raf Simons, who was the creative director of their music video for “I Dare You”. In case you missed it, the video featured Calvin Klein’s latest collection and fashion photographers Alasdair McLellan and Willy Vandeperre. It’s no doubt that The xx has the penchant for fashion. Now, the band has decided to collaborate with denim giant Levi’s for a limited edition line of statement jackets that they have been wearing on tour themselves.
We saw that a lot of you were asking us about the lyric jackets that we wear… and once we had this idea we just couldn’t let it go. It took a while to get it right, but after a few months of planning and creating we are finally able to share with you three items which are very special to us. We have created a small run of limited edition Levi’s Jackets carefully embroided with the lyrics “It could be love”, “Romantic for so long”, and “Before it slips away”. They will arrive in November, but are available to pre-order now xx The xx
The pieces are made from Levi’s classic Berkman Trucker jackets, and it also feature lyrics from their tracks like “Before It Slips Away”, “It Could Be Love”, and “Romantic For So Long”, which are emblazoned on the back of the jackets. “We saw that a lot of you were asking us about the lyric jackets that we wear and once we had this idea, we just couldn’t let it go,” The xx shares on Instagram. “It took a while to get it right, but after a few months of planning and creating, we are finally able to share with you 3 items which are very special to us.”
