Firstly, I’m really sorry about the silence over the past 2 weeks, life and work has kept me busy beyond normal and time to blog has just not existed. I’ve also been working on this mammoth post you’re about to read.

So, about 2 weeks ago the folks at Levis invited me to join 7 other creatives in re interpreting the classic 501 jeans. It was part of a global campaign where the world was invited to show their interpretation, pretty rad stuff, you can see it here.

We needed to take our 3 pairs f 501 and create 8 looks in 2 weeks, after that, it went out to vote on (a local design blogazine) with the winner being sent to a Levis event in either New York, Sao PAulo or San Francisco.

So, of course at the end of this I’m gonna be asking you to vote for us, but first, take a look at the 8 looks I created and see if you think I managed to re interpret the 501.

So that’s pretty much it folks. A lot of hard work, and some very early morning shoots, but were super proud of it. Go check out all the contestants here, and if you think we deserve to win we’de LOVE for you to vote for us. If you scroll down the page towards the bottom, you will see a little voting poll, just click on my name (Sergio Ines) – no tricky filling in forms that lead to annoying mails later.

Unfortunately, at the end of the day, it all comes down to votes, and I’m afraid Im up against some pretty tough competition, with some serious social media reach, I’m kinda counting on the fact that my little following knows a good 501 interpretation when they see it.

Thanks for all the support guys, if we win you’ll be the first to know…and If you’re in San Francisco and you voted let us know, the first round of drink will be on us at our WMBW San Fran mixer.

Okay. Stay Fancy.
