Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka is back! The brand has teamed up with the tennis pro and activist for their second collaboration together. This time, Osaka designed five playful denim pieces for Levi’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection that encapsulate the star’s unique sartorial perspective.

While Muhammad Ali may have had a motto “float like a butterfly sting like a bee”, Osaka likes to say that off the pitch she is “sweet as a flower”. But when it’s on? She is fierce as a bear. Fusing the two juxtaposed personality traits, Osaka chose the “flower bear” as the motif to represent the collaboration. Each piece is based on original Osaka sketches, and all five garments feature contrasting denim and play with proportions for silhouettes that make a statement.

“I wanted to keep this collection fun and playful, and also include pieces for everyone,” Osaka said in an official statement. “I was trying to bring some levity with this collection to remind us all to enjoy the life we ​​live and not take things too seriously. Best of all, these pieces make me feel super confident and comfortable because they are all so flattering and fun to wear.

The collection comes with a ready-to-wear assortment consisting of a coat, jacket, top, skirt and jeans. Each piece has been made with 100% organic cotton. The oversized Artist Coat features contrast denim washes, wide sleeves and dropped shoulders for effortless style. For a lighter outerwear option, Osaka and Levi’s created the Cropped Zip Bomber Jacket with a flower-bear laser print, puff sleeves, and elasticated cuffs and hem.

The denim halter top is the perfect basic, the slightly washed denim corset bustier has a zip fastening for added edge. For a classic chord, the ’93 Naomi Jean is based on the classic men’s 501 jean, with its loose silhouette, accented with Osaka’s flower-bear laser print. Rounding out the collection, the mermaid skirt is made from contrast denim, with a high-low ruffled hem.

A budding figure in fashion, Osaka collaborated with Levi’s team forward in August 2021. The athlete has also modeled campaigns for Louis Vuitton, collaborated with brands like Frankie’s Bikinis, ADEAM, and co-hosted the 2021 Met Gala.
