Update (Wed 11th Mar, 2020 10:00 GMT): A second teasing tweet from Levi's has shown off another couple of items set to join the range. We have a better look at the dungarees teased in our original article below, and some very funky looking jackets.
Original Article (Tue 3rd Mar, 2020 17:30 GMT): Super Mario is many things - plumber, sportsman, doctor, gentleman kart racer - although you'd be hard pressed to call him a fashion icon. That said, not many of us can pull off denim dungarees like he does and it seems that clothing company Levi's is a fan of the Mushroom Kingdom resident's no-nonsense, workmanlike approach to dress sense. Yes, assuming you've collected the requisite number of coins, you'll be able to wear the latest crossover featuring Nintendo's mascot.
Best known for its line in denim jeans, Levi's is teaming up with Nintendo for a clothing collab. The company tweeted out the teaser below which cycles between the Levi's and Super Mario logos and a big gold coin. None too subtle when it comes to signalling pricing, it seems:
Official details are thin on the ground, although website Level Up has a gallery of the items up, a handful of which we've reproduced for you below:
This certainly isn't the first clothing crossover featuring Nintendo's finest, but these items look pleasingly high-quality and Levi's have a reputation for being resilient and hard wearing - the perfect match for the plucky plumber. Let's hope they come at a sensible price.
Fancy getting yourself some Mario dungarees? Reckon you've got what it takes to rock a bum bag in 2020 (or a fanny pack for those of you across the pond)? Let us know if you're tempted by anything in this clothing collection below.
