Fresh Leaves by Levi’s x Justin Timberlake

A capsule collection of laid-back menswear staples.

No memory of the last two decades is free from the iconic vocals of Justin Timberlake. The musician has been defining and redefining the music landscape since taking his place in NSYNC in 1995. The star is also no stranger to making waves in the fashion world, consistently topping best dressed lists for his sharply refined red-carpet ensembles. This fall, Timberlake is flexing his style prowess for his most recent clothing collaboration with Levi’s, a capsule collection of laid-back menswear staples.

With the release of his most recent album, Man of the Woods, Timberlake has relaxed into a more casual, down-to-earth style, both musically and sartorially. Levi’s legacy is one of creating high-quality workwear that’s cool enough for the club, yet tough enough for a serious weekend hiking trip. It’s at this intersection that Timberlake sits comfortably: a man who is just as at home at a Hollywood afterparty as he is making s’mores over the campfire with his family.

Wearing these pieces might entice you to escape to their natural habitat: lakeside, mountainside, or fireside.

The collaboration is called Fresh Leaves, in honour of Timberlake’s reworkings of Levi’s classic trucker jackets, hoodies, and worker shirts. Plaid and camo feature heavily in the 14-piece collection, and play well with textures like canvas and Sherpa. To call this streetwear would be a misnomer—Timberlake is a man of the woods, after all. While these pieces are perfect for a crisp Canadian autumn in the city, wearing them might entice you to escape to their natural habitat: lakeside, mountainside, or fireside.

The collection would not be complete without some signature denim. (Timberlake himself is notorious for his head-to-toe denim look worn next to Britney Spears in 2001.) To wit, Levi’s is releasing their newest fit, the 501 Slim Taper—inspired by the way Timberlake wears his own 501s—with the collection, which debuts October 4.
