The jeans were first shown in September 2020 during the Valentino show in Milan. At that time, vintage 517 Levi’s pants were used with a slight alteration to the back label: VALENTINO was added.
Now, months later, the collab is available for purchase. The collection consists out of two parts.
The runway pieces, being vintage pants from the ’70s, are available in selected Valentino boutiques and Net-a-porter. These one-of-a-kind altered Levi’s are very limited with only—yes, you guessed it—517 pieces up for sale.
The Levi’s re-edition 517 jeans, a re-elaboration of the original style, are available worldwide at Valentino and selected retailers.
