Levi's Launches Harvey Milk Pride Collection


American denim brand Levi’s has launched its third Pride collection and its first global Pride collection for 2016 in partnership with the Harvey Milk Foundation.

A long-standing ally to the LGBTQ community, the Levi’s brand is commemorating the election and legacy of Harvey Milk through a range of gender-neutral product. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Harvey Milk Foundation.


The new seven-piece Levi’s x Harvey Milk Foundation Pride 2016 Collection features a series of distinct design details including: a trucker jacket emblazoned with Harvey Milk’s historic “Hope will never be silent” quote and pride embellishments; stonewashed shorts with rainbow embroidered watch pocket and Harvey Milk patches; Levi’s rainbow tab on jacket and shorts; exclusive ringer tee and tank with Harvey Milk bottle graphic and Levi’s Pride timeline; an evergreen pride tee and 5-panel hat, both with the Levi’s rainbow batwing; and a navy paisley print bandana with Levi’s rainbow batwing embroidery.

The Levi’s x Harvey Milk Foundation Pride Collection is currently available in select retail locations throughout the United States and online. The collection will also launch in Europe on select Levi’s e-commerce sites and at select retail locations June 1.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors.

In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
