Karen Walker and Levi’s have collaborated on a limited run of the Levi’s x Karen Walker Runaway Trucker Jacket which launches in stores and online this Friday 19th June. The jacket was originally created exclusively for Karen Walker herself by Levi’s for the brand’s #IShapeMyWorldCampaign for International Women’s Day in March this year. #IShapeMyWorld is a global initiative dedicated to bringing recognition to the accomplishments of women everywhere, celebrating the strength and fearlessness of those shaping the world around them.
Both Levi’s and Karen Walker are brands that create iconic garments and the original jacket worn by Karen Walker was definitely an item that deserved a release of it’s own so the brand’s many fans can enjoy it too. The Levi’s x Karen Walker Runaway Trucker Jacket features the Runaway Girl, Karen Walker’s signature symbol of adventure, fearlessness and female empowerment. Much like the spirit of the #IShapeMyWorld campaign, the Runaway Girl has grown comfortably into an icon, a symbol of purpose and independence, a faithful companion, stepping constantly alongside the Karen Walker brand and beloved by the brand’s customers.
“I’m proud to have marched alongside her all this time. I’m proud that she’s inspired her community in her own small way. And, I’m sure she’ll continue her brave, intrepid, independent march for many years to come,” says Karen Walker.
The Levis x Karen Walker Runaway Trucker Jacket will be available in limited numbers this Friday 19th June from karenwalker.com, Playpark Newmarket and the newly established Playpark Wellington store, which opens this on Saturday 20th June.
