Introducing the Levi’s Commuter Collection for women.
There is nothing quite like the sweet sensation of the cool breeze brushing against your cheeks as you glide around town peddling away your daily stresses. However, not wearing the right pants can turn even the breeziest of bike rides into an uncomfortable, sweaty and restricting ordeal. In 2011, Levi’s launched the 511 Commuter jean for men to remedy these problems and liberate the urban cyclist to ride freely and practically without scrimping on style. This year, we were very excited to see the launch of the Commuter jean for women. Maintaining similar characteristics to the men’s 511s, the Commuter collection exhibits many bike-friendly features while maintaining a smart and stylish aesthetic:
High Rise Back
To keep you covered (and avoid distracting drivers)
3M reflective cuffs
For night time visibility and safety
Stretch and Reinforcement
For comfort and durability
Light weight and breathable fabrics.
Water and Dirt Repellent
NanoSphere treatment is applied for water-and dirt-resistance
With 94% cotton, 4% polyester and 2% elastane, it is a lightweight and breathable fabric with a touch of stretch. Levi’s Sally Leon, global menswear designer for the Levi’s® capsule Commuter, describes their approach to the Commuter collection: “We work on Commuter in a different way from a fashion collection,…Instead of starting from ethereal inspiration, we begin with fabric innovation concepts.”
Advertised as “Advanced apparel to live, ride and work in” Levi’s have been successful in creating a practical pant that is both beautiful and versatile. Perfect for any situation from running errands to running around the office; the durable and flexible Commuter collection allows you to look great on or off the bike and maintain supreme comfort throughout the day.
