As one of numerous ways Alice Waters
is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Chez Panisse
, the ground-breaking chef is partnering with Levi’s
and a roster of celebs—including Sofia Coppola
, Dave Eggers
, David Byrne
, and Maira Kalman
—to launch a T-shirt collection to benefit the Edible Schoolyard Project
. The 100% organic tees can be snapped up for the first time on Wednesday, August 24
, in select Levi's shops around the country and on levi.com
. City dwellers can even meet the folks behind the shirts and Waters herself (she'll be signing copies of 40 Years of Chez Panisse, The Power of Gathering
) at a Levi's-hosted "school lunch" on Maiden Lane (between Grant Avenue and Stockton Street)
the same day. A mere $5-$10 donation is recommended. It's from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
, so make sure you plan your lunch break accordingly. To get a leg-up on the festivities, peruse the tees and designs of the nifty crates they'll be nestled in after the jump!
