Levi's x Damien Hirst Fall 2008 Collection

Art collectors and denim connoisseurs have a new object of desire; a handful of ultra-rare Levi’s® 1947 501® jeans turned into unique works of art by celebrated contemporary artist Damien Hirst.

Hirst, whose works recently fetched an amazing £111 million in just two days, breaking all auction records previously held by Picasso, has turned seven pairs of iconic 1947 501® jeans into canvases to create unique signature Spin Paintings.

Just one of these striking pieces will be exhibited and sold in the UK to mark the arrival of the Damien Hirst X Levi’s® collection. With a reserve price of £15,000, it will be unveiled at Cinch, Newburgh St, from Wednesday 16th October, where it will be sold through a silent auction. Full details will be available in store.

The Levi’s® X Damien Hirst collection revolves around three key themes of Damien Hirst’s body of work – the skull, spots and tropical butterfly. Levi’s® 501® jeans in black and over-dye blue are teamed with white, black and deep purple rock-inspired T-shirts emblazoned with iconic Hirst imagery – tropical butterflies, dots and skulls.
