American denim icon Lee has some partying to do. The company is fast expecting its 125th anniversary, and to make sure it celebrates things right, the brand has enlisted talents from its favorite labels to spearhead a special "125 Years" denim collection. For the men's line, Donwan Harrell, creative director of PRPS, and Sweden's "denim king" Orjan Andersson combined forces for a range of styles that hark back to Lee's 125-year history.
The designers reimagined Lee's most popular fits and finishes from across the eras: From minimalist reinterpretations to punk rock inspirations, DIY touches and slim silhouettes, expect to see a bit of everything from the celebratory capsule. According to Lee, their "worker-doer aesthetic" and grit embodies the core principles and ethos of the brand. Our favorite style is the patched black denim pants that have a bit of a Euro biker feel.
The collection releases in stores on Thursday, October 16.
