NUDES in Vintage Denim.


A friend forwarded this to me, thinking I would like it. YEP. A few months ago the estate of legendary photographer Sam Haskin posted this to their blog, and the images have been making the tumblr rounds.  In the seventies Levis had a competition and a traveling exhibition of denim decorated by their customers. The results were amazing. (Do you see how “DIY”, and guerrilla marketing campaigns have been around forever?) Sam Haskin shot the denim, but sadly the executives at Levis got cold feet over the nudes and the photographs were never used commercially. [NSFW btw.]

Who else really wants embroidered bell bottoms now? ME.
