Lee Rider Jacket For The XX

Dazed gives a detailed look at those Lee Rider Jackets specially copped for The XX’s tour (of North America at the moment). “Mercury Prize winners, the XX have joined forces with denim brand Lee to personalise their own on-stage denim jackets for the current tour. The XX chose Lee’s iconic classic Rider Jacket originally created for cowboys and ranch workers back in the 1930s, which was one of the first denim jackets of its kind. A limited number have been created for the band and their entourage to celebrate the current 2010 tour. The Lee Rider Jacket has been customised with their band’s ‘X’ on the back in tonal stitch and in white above the front pocket.”

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania x Lee

Vivienne Westwood has teamed up denim heritage brand ‘Lee’ to create a capsule collection of denim that every boy about town will be clambering to get their mitts on.
The capsule denim collection from Anglomania & Lee will consist of 4 styles for Men (and 5 for women) and come in styles influenced by classic denim cuts, low crotch jeans, rock ‘n’ roll and, never one to miss out on an opportunity to shock; bondage. Drawing on inspiration from her over flowing design archive, the styles reference Westwood’s height of influence and infamy from the 70′s and 80′s when punk and pirate were the only words any fringe fashion follower would use to describe their style. Westwood signatures can also boldly be found on the collection through the use dynamic cuts she has developed throughout her career and once risqu? design notes such as crotch zips (surely a sign that middle England isn’t quite as shockable as it used to be – in fact, these days, a crotch zip seems more like a dangerous accident waiting happen, as opposed to the ballsy display of sexuality and subversive eroticism it used to be).
The jeans are sure to sell out in an instant, and with finishes that range from distressed and vintage washes to prints that were once used by Viv in her couture designs, these jeans have the potential to become keepers, if not collectables. Quite how Vivienne Westwood, a designer known for her head strong politically and socially aware design ethos, was convinced to collaborate with main stream denim masters such as Lee, we’ll never know – all that ‘beans has to say on the subject is that we’re glad she did. For those who can’t afford to indulge in the main line collections (and let’s face it, who can?), this diffusion collaboration is the ideal way to buy into the Westwood dream.
