Chakor Jain, Business Head, Lee India, said, “Music has always been an important part of Lee’s history. The icons of fashion – in cinema and music – have always represented Lee. Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Bruce Springsteen are a few cult icons who loved and lived in their pair of Lee. Given that, we at Lee are excited to be part of the second season of ‘Lee History Rocks’, which honours the Gods of Rock. We had a phenomenal success with the first season and look forward to rocking your world again.”
