Roll back the years

Roll back the years

In the 1980s if there was one fashion statement more popular than a pair of Levi’s, it was half a pair of Levi’s. It was customising gone demented with hoards of teenage girls manically slashing their hipply slung 501s to bottom-peeking proportions and having roller parties. I even had a roller club - how cool-a-roola was I?

A couple of decades on, I’m still trying to squeeze one arse cheek into my “denim cut-offs” and I would still be in the roller club if the other member (my sister) hadn’t left home. Evidently, I’m not the only one, still living the dream. Roller discos are back thanks to the Apple ipod roller skating advert and Levi’s have dusted off the archives to reproduce the limited edition roller girl package.

We are loving the collection consisting of 1933 501 shorts, 1966 606 super skinny fit jeans, customised with roller boot laces and 1950s and 60s Graphic Tee’s featuring original Rick Griffin artwork, which are exact replicas from the Levi’s Strauss and Co Archive.

Everything down to the wear and tear scrapes on the jeans are 100 per cent authentic from when they were worn in by the original roller girls. Everything that is except the urm….roller boots which you can’t get from Levi’s.
