“I’m a jeans girl at heart. I feel most confident and comfortable, sexy and strong in my jeans.”

— Alicia Keys

  • Kurt Vile

    Philadelphia’s favorite son, Kurt Vile, is all about staying connected with his roots. He’s risen to fame as a renowned singer, songwriter and guitar player, but has retained his hometown sensibility in his music. Kurt’s style reflects his sentimentality more than it does his status as an indie rock icon. It’s understated and worn in. He relies on the basics—graphic tees, Levi’s® 510™ Skinny Fit jeans, and his beloved Trucker Jacket that travels with him wherever he goes. From his Philly roots to his laidback look, Kurt prefers to let his music do the talking.

  • Ryn Weaver

    Ryn commands attention onstage—or anywhere, really. The moment she steps into the spotlight, she is transformed. Not into someone else. Rather, into the most powerful version of herself. Ryn’s self-described “playfully chic” style reflects that transformation. Offstage, her go-to outfit is black Levi’s® Skinny jeans with a tucked-in shirt. But onstage those same slimming skinnies get stepped up with a flowing top, leather jacket and statement hat. She takes cues from her older rock idols to create this dramatic look. At the end of the day, though, it’s all Ryn.

  • Benjamin Booker

    Roots matter to Benjamin Booker. He takes Gainesville, Florida’s influence with him wherever he goes. There—in the burgeoning punk scene with strong blues elements—he found his sound and a unique style to match. Sharp yet muted, Booker always looks effortlessly cool by going back to basics. Like his favorite Levi’s® Trucker Jacket, Booker prefers things that get better with time. He wears what feels natural and plays what feels right. And no matter where around the world he tours, he stays true to his roots.

  • Ibeyi

    20-year-old French-Cuban twin sisters Naomi & Lisa-Kainde Diaz find beauty and balance in tension. Their similarities, and clear differences, are exhibited in their style. Both tend toward black basics like their Levi’s® Skinny Jeans. But where Lisa-Kaindé prefers understated clothing, Naomi plays with fashion. She’ll dress up her skinny jeans with a statement heel, leather jacket, and a red lip. It’s in these differences of taste that the magic of their music is born. Ibeyi (meaning ‘twins’ in Yoruban) has become their common ground—the best of both of them.

  • Kavka Shishido

    You wouldn’t know it by watching her perform, but Kavka Shishido has always been shy. Her desire to hide led to drumming—the instrument of the often overlooked. But as she grew her craft, she learned to take the spotlight. And now she’s pushing herself further through collaborations with other musicians. With this musical stretch comes a willingness to test new styles, too. All-black outfits with Levi’s® Skinny Jeans will always be her go-to. But Kavka is finding herself more and more comfortable in new looks like a worn-in, perfectly-tapered Levi’s® 501® CT jean.
