Project Jacquard not coming to Australia this year according to Levi’s


If you’ve had your sights set on Google and Levi’s new collaboration in connected fashion, the Levi’s Trekker Commuter Jacket, you’ll have to wait a little longer with Levi’s Australia advising we won’t be seeing them in the near future.

The Project Jacquard infused jacket can be used to control apps including Spotify and navigation apps via an app on your smartphone through a flexible USB-based control module on the left sleeve.

The Trekker Commuter Jacket will go on-sale in the US in the ‘Fall’ (Spring here in Australia), and according to a Levi’s Australia spokesperson the jacket will also be available in ‘key markets’ by the end of this year. While Levi’s Australia hasn’t confirmed a release date for the Commuter Jacket in the ANZ market, Australia is not included in the list of these first release markets.

The Levi’s Trekker Commuter Jacket will cost $350USD when it goes on-sale later this year, or around $462AUD as a direct conversion without any consideration for any ‘Australia Tax’. We’ll know more about availability for the jacket in the coming months.

Have you been waiting for Project Jaquard?
