Influenced by his hometown of Memphis, the new Levi’s® x Justin Timberlake Spring 2019 Fresh Leaves capsule collection has launched infusing the music and style of his roots into every item. As the second installment of the collaboration, called “Fresh Leaves,” the Memphis-inspired lineup offers updated twists on timeless Levi’s® classics—like fresh leaves on an old favourite tree—making them at once both familiar and new, classic and contemporary blending Justin’s signature style of heritage, hip-hop, rocker, and streetwear style.
“Memphis and music have always been a big part of me and it became a huge part of this collection, just going back to the places and things I loved here as a kid.” ,” says Grammy award-winning artist, Justin Timberlake.

Where is Justin Timberlake From?
Justin Timeberlake was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He pays homage to his roots in his music and style being accompanied on his tour and in his Netflix special by the Tennessee Kids. It’s all but impossible to separate the city of Memphis from its music. Whether it’s the rock ’n roll shake of Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, or the R&B grooves of Otis Redding and Isaac Hayes, the Bluff City basically created sound of the 20th century. And it’s this iconic sound that has been infused in his new capsule collection with Levi’s.
What Styles are the Levi’s® x Justin Timberlake Capsule Collection
Of course, at the heart of that style is a great fitting pair of Levi’s® jeans. And for Levi’s® x Justin Timberlake Spring 2019, that means a whole lot of tapering. From the Levi’s® 501® Slim Taper in washed black to the new 501® Slim Taper in white for a lighter springtime vibe. The standout piece though is the Levi’s 502 Taper—currently the Levi’s® brand’s best-selling in faded indigo and solid black.
Along with the Levi’s® 501® Slim Taper and Levi’s® 502ä Taper, the collection also features a range of hoodies and Truckers—several with “Fresh Leaves” sleeve screen prints—a Trucker-hoodie hybrid, graphic tees in short and long-sleeve, and a print short-sleeve button-up. It’s the Levi’s® you know and love mixed with a splash of street style swagger, and then all wrapped up in a nostalgic love letter to Memphis.
