This is an interesting collaboration that I am too lazy to explain on my own. Here are some bullet points from the press release…
Sagmeister has developed a series of designs that explore the jean that started it all – the Levi’s Original, Button-Fly 501
The installation will unveil the first two Sagmeister images from the special art series created for the Levi’s
Levi’s brand and American Rag stores in Los Angeles and San Francisco will distribute a limited run of 501 museum-quality, poster reproductions of the Sagmeister images featured in American Rag’s windows this March.
Sagmeister took Levi’s Original button-fly 501 and examined its origin and mystique, literally stripping the iconic silhouette down to the raw materials that compose its DNA. “The jeans themselves are iconic, so we decided to go with just a product shot, using nothing more and nothing less than a single pair of 501s,” Stefan explains.

Notte Sento is a short film made with 4500+ still photographs.
“A girl misses her train to Milan and is set to wait overnight in Rome until dawn. However, a chance encounter with a guy changes her plans and the night lights of the capital turn into the background to a tender love story. An extraordinary chemistry made of knowing glances and small gestures fills the few instants that separate them both from the sunrise.”
As the NCAA tournament kicks into gear today, this video by Peter Rosenberg always makes me laugh. Duke can get the dills forever, and although the Terps don’t have a shot in hell this year, they get 100% of my support.
