Artist Damien Hirst is designing a new collection for Levi Strauss & Co, it has been reported.

He has co-designed for the company's spring 2008 Warhol Factory X Levi's X Damien Hirst collection, including jeans priced at US$4,000 a pair, according to Bloomberg.

Levi's high-end collection, which also relied on a licensing agreement with the Andy Warhol Foundation, debuts on 8 September at New York Fashion Week, say reports.

The company was not available for comment when contacted by just-style this afternoon (31 August).
