Levi’s X OriginalFake, the five-time collaboration between the US denim brand and the Japanese streetwear label founded by graffiti artist Kaws, will be launched in Europe this September.



Previously available only in Asia, the line comprises three sharp-looking jeans styles each with Kaws’ signature teeth design.



Shoppers can choose from two styles based on vintage Levi’s 501 jeans and the cargo style based on a silhouette from Original Fake’s mainline. The Levi’s 501 jeans are styled on the iconic design from 1947 and 1955 and feature a customized zip-fly. All three styles, each with a unique teeth colorway of florescent green, navy blue or red, meanwhile are made from selvage 12oz indigo denim. The teeth marks are printed in red on the selvage, adding extra bite to the design when the pants are rolled up. Each pair of jeans also has a dark vintage finish, while the cargo is offered in pure rigid denim.



The Levi’s X OriginalFake capsule collection will be available from September 2009 in seven European stores including Selfridges in the UK, Cinch in Paris, Slam Jam in Milan, Colette and Heritage in Paris, Levi’s Buttenheim store in Berlin, and Norse in Copenhagen.

Retail prices start at €330.
