The Mummy. Frankenstein’s monster. The Bride of Frankenstein. All hail the herald of spooky season, with three silver screen horror icons, now combined with Levi’s®’ jeans expertise for a terribly fun collection that has us ravenous for more.
If you’ve been looking for a collection that leans towards fashion more than merchandise, this is it. The Levi’s® x Universal Monsters takes its chilling inspiration from three original horror films from Universal Pictures: Frankenstein (1931), The Bride of Frankenstein (1935), and The Mummy (1932), each masterpieces in their own right while also famous for ushering an era of monster flicks.
This fresh Levi’s® line-up aims to do the films justice, with denim, tees, tops and accessories, which bring together classic Levi’s® silhouettes with archival graphics from the films’ original posters; these are blown up to mega proportions or arranged in a funky collage, with a black-and-white colour scheme that gives off laid-back punk vibes. What’s even better is how some details come alive in the dark — glow-in-the-dark graphics, for instance, as well as special-edition, co-branded monochromatic back patches and labels, glimmer an eerie green at night.
Silhouettes to look out for include a black rinse Levi’s® Trucker jacket, where an enlarged graphic of Frankenstein’s monster lurks at the back, and a matching pair of black rinse 501® jeans featuring The Bride of Frankenstein. A white Stay Loose Carpenter pant sees a mash-up of Monster graphics across the cargo pant style, screen-printed onto the sturdy fabric, while we see the same print on a relaxed-fit shirt and a Sling bag.

The monochromatic colour palette is, naturally, an ode to the black-and-white screen classics, though there are some pops of neon yellow and green, on the reversible Bucket Hat, for instance, or a logo or two that you’ll only notice upon closer inspection. The range also includes a few comfy tees, including a long-sleeve striped style with a contrast crew neckline.
