Billed as an athlete-designed jersey line, the Skate Copa run’s creation was motivated by soccer and skating’s abilities to unite people from different cultures. Mark Gonzales and the Brooklyn Creator Farm collaborated closely with professional skaters Blondey McCoy, Na-kel Smith, Tyshawn Jones, Marc Johnson, Miles Silvas, Daewon Song and Rodrigo Teixeira to create the collection, producing eight different designs.
“The theme that seemed to coincide with everybody was that they hated a negative vibe,” Gonzales explains via press statement. “I played with various phrases and one that stood out for us was ‘Negitve Energy, Posetive Peopel’, so I thought to do a design and put it on each of the jerseys.”
Specifically, the items come in long, short-sleeve, v-neck and crewneck varieties; the clothes boast Climalite fabrics and unique, striking details like “oversized stripes, color-blocked necklines and embroidered accents.”
