Named after the cookie - cutter, suburban communities of the 1950's, the Levittown narrative represents the underbelly of the American dream. Created as an oasis from congested city life, these developing communities were made available to war veterans wanting to start afresh and retreat to the suburbs. With homes being built assembly style at lightning speeds (each home included a lawn, picket fence and modern appliances), young families fled apartment living for space and solace in the country. But behind this white picket fence illusion was the reality the these homes were only available for white families, consciously creating segregated communities. The Levittown narrative explores gentrification, the erosion of both city life and small towns and the harsh reality behind the screen of suburban bliss. Inspired by mid-century clothing, Levittown views classic Americana with a modern lens. Tweed-like pants are done in a jogger silhouette, varsity jackets updated in colorful shearling and ribbed basics sport retro patterns. Faded washes, jagged hems and pieced- patched effects speak to life's hardships while the color palette pulls from both pastoral and industrial influences with retro pops.
