Golf Wang, Tyler, the Creator’s perfectly off-center label, has never shied away from bold prints, funky retro patterns, and outrageously cool colors. The rapper and designer has brought his colorful brand of fashion to classic tennis clothes, and his partnership with Converse renders covetable sneakers in candy colors on the regular. Now, Tyler, the Creator is teaming up with Levi’s for a limited-edition capsule collection that is sure to turn some heads.
The look is inspired by a pair of rainbow polka-dot jeans initially created for Golf Wang’s first-ever runway show in 2016. This time, the colorful treatment has been applied to a Levi’s 501 ‘93 jean and a vintage Trucker jacket, both of which come covered in a rainbow polka dots and a special edition co-branded back patch. Tyler, the Creator specifically chose the ‘93 jean: a boxier fit with a higher rise than the typical 501, inspired by the go-to denim style of the 1990s. Skinny jeans have been on the way out for quite some time, and one of the most stylish men in the world picking a baggier, straight-cut jean is just another nail in the slim-cut coffin. (The classic denim trucker, on the other hand, will never go out of style.) This two-piece collection will be available via Levi’s and Golf Wang starting on May 20.
Tyler, the Creator is a modern master of making ostentatious clothes and sneakers still feel super wearable. It’s not uncommon to see him in a kelly green suit with a bright yellow sweater, say, or a pink polo with flower-printed pants. So, it’s not exactly hard to picture him in a pair of rainbow dotted jeans. Now, we understand that polka dot denim isn’t for the faint of heart—but it sure is a great way to add some stylish psychedelic flair to any springtime wardrobe.
