NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER are the exclusive global retail partners for vintage Levis® 1969 – 517 for Valentino collaboration

April 28, 2021

NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER are the exclusive global retail partners for the launch of Valentino’s interpretation of the original 1969 Levi’s® 517 boot cut jeans, launching across both sites on April 28.

The style made its debut in the Valentino Collezione Milano – Spring Summer 2021 show. Each piece of denim is a vintage unaltered original that has been upcycled from previously-worn 517 jeans. Characterized by one-of-a-kind peculiarities, each piece bears a special label that shows its individual number in the very limited quantities available – just 517 units worldwide.

NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER will also be launching the Levi’s® Re-Edition for Valentino styles – the re-elaboration of the original style, exclusively produced by Levi’s® in occasion of the collaboration with Valentino Maison.

The Levi’s® for Valentino collaboration is arguably the most covetable denim to own this season. We love how Pierpaolo Piccioli has reimagined the timeless 517 style to make it fresh and relevant for today. It’s an immediate and clever response to what our customer wants right now and we are thrilled to be the exclusive global partner for the launch.
