The Levi’s® House, Sydney

15.May.2018

Late last week we hosted a two day shindig in a sweet pad on the cliffs of South Coogee in Sydney. The weather turned it on for us as we welcomed a tight group of media and key influencers to enjoy lunch by the sea.

A brief model moment showcasing the Levi’s® Spring/Summer 2018 Collection ensued as we enjoyed the R&B vibes of Melbourne songstress KAIIT.

Various spaces within the house were set up with latest collections from Red Tab, Made & Crafted and Levi’s® Authorized Vintage – all of which were received with excitement by the fashion crowd in attendance.

The infamous Levi’s® Tailor Shop held pride of place where four customization stations were set up showcasing the work from our master tailor – Anthony Wicks; as well as guest artists in residence for the event – Kentaro Yoshida, Freddie from All My Relations and Sophia Athas from Hatrik Vintage.

Guests were gifted Levi’s® Authorized Vintage Jeans; as well as having the opportunity to have their fave piece of Levi’s® customized over the two days.

As the sun went down we welcomed a new array of guests consisting of music industry, influencers and local Sydney crew and friends of the brand.

Drinks were kindly provided by Aperol, Young Henry’s, Sailor Jerry and Rok Kombucha.

Kwame kicked off the night with a killer set that got the crowd dancing, followed by bass slapping beats from Touch Sensitive.

In-between live sets we had Alys Hale taking to the decks with her fave tunes and unique sense of style.

Guests included Isabella Manfredi, Jack Moffitt, Harvey Miller, Saasha Burns, Carlie Fowler, James Mattherson, Jono Friend, Elle Ferguson and Holly Ryan.

Check out some of the photos from the two days here and our event wrap video bellow…

Levi’s® Music Sessions x ROOFTOP CINEMA 2018

12.Apr.2018

Levi’s® has been partnering with Rooftop Cinema over the last 4 years in helping to curate and present iconic films over the summer months to Melbournians and tourists alike; but this summer we decided to step it up by pulling together a month of local musicians hosted on the rooftop each Sunday afternoon as the sun set over the Melbourne skyline.

 

We hosted emerging artists – Yeo, Harrison Storm, Saatsuma and Jaala which went down a treat and was a welcome surprise for cinema patrons who lucked out on a free gig before their evening film screening.

 

Take a look at a short highlight video here with music by YEO.

AUSTRALIA SHOWS ITS PRIDE IN EQUALITY

03.Apr.2018

In honor of Australia’s Pride month – the first since the country legalized same-sex marriage last year – Levi’s® Australia debuted a series of short films highlighting powerful voices from the LGBTQI community.

The Levi’s® Pride x Equality film series features eight individuals sharing their stories and messages of inclusion.

“We launched this campaign to support the ongoing work we have been doing to fight for marriage equality in Australia, which was only recently made legal,” said Nicky Rowsell, marketing manager for Levi’s® Australia & New Zealand. “It was also important and timely for us to provide a voice more broadly speaking for diversity within the LGBTQI community — particularly in regards to acceptance of minority groups within the community itself.”

The films were shot by Melbourne filmmaker Jeff Johnson, and feature Brisbane hip-hop performer Miss Blanks, artist Kim Leutwyler, singer Oscar Key Sung, dancer Loredo Malcolm, makeup artist Ruby Allegra, artist/designer Phil Ferguson, singer/songwriter Abbe May – and Levi’s® very own Darcy Chiswell, a store manager from the Adelaide store.

“As a trans woman of color, what equality means to me is being able to live my most authentic self, free from any kind of discrimination based on the intersections that I offer,” says Miss Blanks in her video. “We need to push this conversation of inclusion and acceptance… You are valid, your voice is valid, your body is valid, and you’ll do big things.”
