Not only are these Levis the most expensive in the world, they are the most extraordinarily psychedelic designer pants that I've come across on the market. At first glance, the explosive splash of colors can induce a 70s flashback, begging to ask the question: are these art or fashion?

Successful contemporary artist Damien Hurst collaborated with Denim giant Levis, to produce this colorful and wearable art form, thus forming a remarkable marriage of modern art and comfort.

Implications - Spin Jeans are produced in limited numbers, with only 8 recorded releases worldwide. Furthermore, they have an exceptionally high price point of ¥2,625,000, or $27,000 USD. The unique multi-colored splatter pattern gives an artistic twist to the iconic Levi denim. Consumers may be willing to shell out extra cash because of the artistic value of these not-so ordinary jeans.
