Each season, Levi's takes a trip down memory lane and into its archives to recreate some of its most iconic pieces from years gone by. The collections are usually a fascinating snapshot of the brand's history, and this season is no different. It channels the revolution of American art during the mid-1940s better known as abstract expressionism.

The movement birthed a whole new breed of artists — the likes of Clifford Still, Joan Mitchell, Barnett Newman and Jackson Pollock — who were heavily influenced by surrealism and a modern year-zero mentality. Levi’s FW16 Vintage Clothing offering pays tribute to these artists, with a collection revolving around The 9th Street Exhibition of 1951, New York’s ground-breaking exhibition of artists and poets from the previous decade.

Each piece in the collection highlights key artworks in and surrounding the exhibition, with paint splatter detailing and distressing on customized Bay Meadows T-shirts, 1950s-inspired Tab Twill shirts, and the iconic Lot 67 Sack coat.  The collection also re-introduces popular pieces such as the 1950s Sportswear Tee, along with the Bay Meadows sweatshirt with an updated fit. Check out the lookbook above, then head over to Levi's to shop in full.

In other fashion news, Fear of God has teamed up with ready made on a vintage military backpack.
