With his black and white coloring, his great big eyes, and his wide grin, Felix the Cat is one of the most recognizable cartoon characters in film and TV history. This Fall/Winter 2021, Levi’s and Felix the Cat collide in an homage to Felix’s college years with the launch of the Levi’s x Felix the Cat collection, affectionately titled Felix the Graduate – a new take on this fun-loving classic.
Inspired by the popular cartoon TV series of the 1950s and ‘60s, this collection playfully explores the idea of Felix in college. Felix the Graduate features the iconic cartoon cat re-imagined at Felix University, wearing a contemporary spin on classic collegiate and varsity style sweaters, rugby shirts, hoodies, jackets, pants, and tops. It’s collegiate prep meets ‘90s streetwear, in a range of modern shapes and silhouettes. A perfect past-meets- present, pop-culture-infused collection.
Designed as a fresher, smarter take on classic Levi’s, the collection includes the Levi’s x Felix Pleated High Loose for women’s, a lightweight 10-ounce denim trouser-style pant based on the original 1920s Levi’s Balloon pant, featuring a loose, slightly oversized fit, and a crease down the centre. For men’s bottoms, there’s a similar pleated version of that relaxed fitted denim pant, called the Levi’s x Felix Pleated Pant, for a tailored collegiate look.
Every element in the collection takes cues not only from classic Felix archival graphics, but from classic collegiate elements too. There’s a half-n-half collared Levi’s x Felix Rugby Shirt featuring rugby stripes on one side and a Felix graphic embroidered on solid grey on the other. There’s also a range of hoodies featuring not only varsity style Felix graphics, but also gym locker labels on the cuff and the bottom hem of the sweatshirt. Sundries get the college treatment too, like the Levi’s x Felix backpatch, which features a graphic of the iconic cat alongside the Two Horse label and are embossed in gold on either dark green or burgundy, to simulate the look of an old college yearbook. Fans will also notice the commemorative Felix University pennant and the back of bottoms in the collection as well as a fully functional iron-on patch included with select pieces.
Accessories in the collection include a denim Levi’s x Felix Campus Carryall Tote with an embroidered Felix graphic at the top and a Levi’s x Felix Reversible Campus Bucket Hat.
Ranging between RM119 to RM379, Levi’s x Felix The Cat will be available for purchase on levi.com.my and in select Levi’s stores nationwide from 24 September 2021 onwards.
