The Levi’s design team flew in earlier this month from San Francisco to hold a preview of its fall collections in New York. Hosting the event — which included a performance by the British band One Eskimo — were designers Carl Chiara and Janine Chilton-Faust and brand creative director Len Peltier.
The men’s lines on display were the first under the complete direction of Erik Joule, senior vice president of design and merchandising for Levi’s men’s and boys for the Americas. He joined the company last year from Quiksilver.
