Naomi Osaka has just been elevated. The four-time Grand Slam champion has announced a limited-edition Levi’s denim collection. All four pieces are made from vintage or upcycled materials. Naomi collaborated with Levi’s to make sure they captured her unique mix between sporty and feminine. One look at these products will show you Naomi’s influence on the design.
The collection includes a kimono, two pairs of shorts, and a bustier. The denim kimono ($380), is made from dark wash denim and an obi belt. “As a child, I loved wearing kimonos, ” Naomi stated in a press release that being able to wear it in denim was a big surprise. These shorts look very different, but they are equally stylish. The lace up shorts ($150), which sit just above the knee, were made from a pair men’s jeans and feature a cool lace-up back. The shorts with crystal fringe ($250) were made from Shorts and feature embellished crystals running down the legs.
“The sustainability aspect was super important to me.” Naomi stated that sustainability was a very important aspect of her work. I love the fact that all pieces in the collection have been recycled or repurposed from existing stock. The Levi’s x Naomi Osaka collection is available in select Levi’s shops and online at Levi’s.
