Alife and Lee are celebrating their 20th and 130th anniversaries, respectively, by releasing a co-branded capsule collection. The collaboration draws inspiration from archival moments such as Lee’s patenting of the Union-Alls jumpsuit from over a century ago, as well as being part of the New York City hip-hop scene in the 1980s and 1990s.
The fabric utilized for the multi-denim piece collection comes from one of the last selvedge denim mills in the United States, the Cone Mills White Oak Plant, which permanently closed in 2017. Standout styles include the Regular Tapered Corduroy Jean and Jacket, Regular Tapered Selvedge Denim Jean and Jacket, Buddy Lee Tee, and Alife x Lee Pullover Hoodie.
Featuring heritage pieces with an Alife spin, the collaborative collection launches at Alife Rivington Club and online October 3.
