Nothing says fall than a night of denim and good music, right?
Levi’s put those together Thursday night in L.A. to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the brand’s Type III Trucker jacket with Karlie Kloss and guests like fellow model Romee Strijd, who designed custom trucker jackets just for the occasion.
“I wanted to make something that was kind of the classic trucker silhouette, a little bit oversized, and cropped to give it just a little bit of a refresh on the silhouette,” Kloss told InStyle about her staple denim design, which she wore during the event over a black body-hugging L'Agence dress and black Dr. Martens ankle boots. “I love an oversized jean jacket. I love the classic trucker. It’s such a staple in my closet, for sure,” she continued.
Her design was put on display on a huge wooden wall along with 49 others created by celebrities and fashion insiders. Also in the mix: InStyle Editor-in-Chief Laura Brown’s design, a khaki-colored jacket complete with beige panels.
Later, the Kode with Klossy founder went on to dish on why she wanted to be a part of the event. “My mom had this ‘70s-like OG Levi’s trucker jacket that my sisters and I would wear. So, it was really cool to be a part of this, and 50 years of those jackets,“ Kloss said. "There’s real legacy in it, and I wanted to give it a little bit of a modern edge. I’m going to wear [my jacket] all the time.”
While Kloss opted not to cover her jacket with designs and fabric, Strijd went a different route, covering hers with colorful sequined zig-zags and sheer white fabric. “I co-designed this one with Levi’s Made & Crafted,” she told us. “It’s going to come out this spring. So yeah, I’m very excited about it. I think it’s super cute for Coachella.”
