Justin Timberlake wanted to “mix things up” when working on his third collaboration with Levi’s.
The Man of the Woods hitmaker celebrated his latest partnership with the iconic denim brand as he unveiled his 12-piece Levi’s x Justin Timberlake fall/winter 2019 Fresh Leaves collection at a bash in the Hollywood Hills on Tuesday.
The line features hooded shirts, plaid trucker jackets, canvas cargo pants, a reversible vest, and an orange camouflage worker shirt, with items priced from $78 – $380 (£61- £297).
And Timberlake was keen to keep the traditional designs of the California-based brand present in his line.
“When you work with such an institution like Levi’s, you don’t want them to be anything but Levi’s,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “And so, it’s just a little bit of a swerve here and there on fit or cut or wash or texture and that’s it.
“For the first two seasons, we created a bit of a left-of-centre aesthetic and we just want to continue to play up on that… I like to mix things up, always.”
The singer and actor also wanted to focus on versatility, and several pieces in the Fresh Leaves range are reversible.
“I get to travel to a lot of different places and I think the biggest part of it, to be honest, is to create something that you feel could be worn in Paris, could be worn in New York, could be worn In Stockholm, could be worn in L.A. and could be worn in Memphis, Tennessee,” the 38-year-old shared.
Elsewhere in the interview, Timberlake revealed that his and wife Jessica Biel’s four-year-old son Silas will be in charge of the family’s Halloween costumes this year.
“He gets to choose, so everything we’ve ever worn is his choice… He was Lego Batman last year. So, listen, I wouldn’t be surprised if he chose that again!” he laughed.
