The Levi’s x Pokemon collection is coming to South Africa
Here's what is available and when you can get your hands on it
2021 is the 25th anniversary of Pokemon, which is kind of a big deal. I’ve played enough Pokemon on my Nintendo Switch for you to know that I’m a big fan. In fact, I even visited the Pokemon Mega Centre in Japan, which was AMAZING. Here’s a quick walk through vlog of that if you’re interested:
I love Pikachu, I love the my Jigglypuff beanie, my Pikachu hoodie and pretty much all the Pokemon plushies littered around my house. So when I found out about the Levi’s x Pokemon collaboration, I was pretty stoked. Levi’s has been doing the most with geek culture recently. From Star Wars to LEGO they’ve covered it all. Remember that gorgeous Levi’s x LEGO hoodie of mine?
The latest geek culture phenomena to be added to Levi’s collection list is Pokemon. Here’s the important stuff you need to know:
The Levi’s x Pokemon collection WILL drop in South Africa on the 15th of February.
The items will be available on www.levi.co.za but also at the Sandton, Canal Walk, Menlyn, Cavendish and V&A Waterfront stores.
I have official confirmation of what items will be available in South Africa! Here they are:
There are three pieces that I would say are the iconic items launching with the collection. There is the 90s style Vintage Fit Trucker Jacket and the 551 Z Authentic Straight jean. Both have an oversized Pikachu featured and there are lightning bolt patches. I’m obsessed with the jeans. There’s a funky boyfriend jean style that I think could be styled with those. The third icon item, in my opinion, is the Levi’s Misty Short which come with red braces. This is a nod to the iconic outfit Misty wears in the series. These are so damn cute. Take a look:
For those of you looking for a funky T-shirt or hoodie, you’re in luck. Levi’s is dropping a selection of those too and they will be available locally. I’m in love with the stylish white T and the black long sleeve hoodie type shirt is also a favourite. Who am I kidding? I love hoodies and Ts… I’d take all of these:
Finally, there are some of the Levi’s x Pokemon accessories dropping locally as well. South Africa will have a gym bag that has an all-over floral Pokemon print. We’ll also have a Poke Ball crossbody bag. However, the BEST of the accessories is the red and white trucker hat with has been modelled on the same cap Ash wears in the TV series. I’m properly obsessed:
I have had official confirmation from Levi’s South Africa that all 9 of these items will be available locally. While there isn’t a word on local pricing yet (I have asked and am waiting for the response). I’ll update the post once I have the prices. Happy Pokemon collecting!
I'd love to chat to you some more.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
