Coffee with Hailey Bieber? Chat with Jaden Smith? It’s all happening on Levi’s® 501® Day

Everything Going Down on Levi’s® 501® Day 2021: Event Line Up

It has been over a century since Levi’s® 501®, the first classic denim jean, was created. Patented in 1873 by Levi Strauss & Co. and Jacob Davis, inventor of the blue jean, the 501® has come a long way. To celebrate its history and impact on style and culture, Levi’s® 501® Day 2021 is pulling out all the stops, and it’s all coming to screens very, very near you on May 20.

Online and everywhere

The Levi’s® 501® Day 2021 program takes place entirely online — it’s happening on YouTube, Instagram, Tiktok, Twitch and Clubhouse — where people go to get clued in on trends, culture and to build community these days.

While serious about owning its heritage, Levi’s® is committed to the denim lovers of today. On 501® Day, it takes the chance to introduce Levi’s® Originals, an exciting cohort of people from athletes to activists: Hailey Bieber, Naomi Osaka, Marcus Rashford, Emma Chamberlain, Barbie Ferreira, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jaden Smith, some of whom will feature on segments of the full-day program on May 20.

Also not to be missed are the live performances from the 501® Haus on YouTube Live by Kehlani, Eric Nam, Joyce Wrice, and Duckwrth.

Here are all the digital events taking place on May 20, 501® Day:

Blue is the new green 

If Levi’s® is here to stay, then it needs to get with the program and minimizing its ecological impact is high on the agenda. On Levi’s® 501® Day 2021, you’ll learn more about the brand’s efforts towards making jeans more sustainable. Last month, for instance, it introduced “Buy Better. Wear Longer“, a campaign that encourages people to buy good quality denim that lasts for longer.

Where it comes to fashion, there’s really no real magic formula to reducing your carbon footprint except to buy well and get more wear out of every piece in your wardrobe. And with Levi’s® 501®, you’re getting quality honed over 148 years. Name us another denim brand that offers that — we’ll wait.
