Parisian label LES (ART)ISTS has drawn inspiration from the tried and true mixture of streetwear and sportswear, paying homage to famous artists and sports teams of the world. For its latest collection, the imprint has teamed up with K-Way for a line of jackets inspired by US football jerseys. The nylon jackets, which are waterproof, breathable and lined with thermobonded seams, are emblazoned with a vintage inspired photo of fashion’s “Dream Team” on the back, which includes names such as Raf Simons, Marc Jacobs, Riccardo Tisci, among others. Two other iterations of the garment feature Russian menswear foreman Gosha with the number 84 (an Orwellian nod to the artist’s homeland and SS16 collection) and Vetements creative mastermind Demna Gvasalia with the number 81 (in reference to the designer’s year of birth) on the back. Available in a variety of colors, the LES (ART)ISTS x K-way jackets retail for €145 (approximately $156 USD) and are available here.
