“Growing up in the Midwest, I think I only wore denim. I was a jeans and T-shirt girl that learned high fashion by working in the industry, but I grew up in Levi’s. I wanted to make a silhouette that was the classic Trucker style, oversize long sleeves so your hands can kind of slide into the jacket so you can just see fingers, and cropped. It has cool attitude and is one of those things you can just throw on.”- Karlie said.
