Ain't No Party Like a Levi's Party 'Cuz a Levi's Party Don't Suck

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

When Levi's throws a party they really throw a party—last night we hit the brand's SoHo Photography Workshop to check out their spring/summer '11 collection. The clothes were great—lots of cranberries and Nantucket reds, subtle stripes, washed-out neutrals, flouncy layers and lower rises, very summery, very wearable—but the models managed to totally take a backseat to the festivities.

Over a variety of wines and specialty cocktails shaken by dudes really into shaking cocktails, along with baby lobster rolls and teeny turkey burgers, revelers enjoyed a free photobooth, a funk-meets-indie deejay (anyone who plays "Buffalo Stance" is okay in our books), and an awesome set by British buzz band the Duke Spirit. On the walls: A variety of sweet and sexy Levi's-related photography enhanced by a mash-up of light and video installations. Overhead: A chandelier comprised of spent water cooler jugs.

Good times, good crowd, even a good giftbag. Check the gallery for shots of the clothes and the celebration.
