Kim Jones x Nike Football Collection
Having recently graced Dover Street Market London with an exclusive release, we now get a closer look at the much anticipated Kim Jones “Football Reimagined” Nike Collection. Informed by Kim Jones’ passion for football and his DIY sensibilities, the collection takes cues from London’s early ‘70s punk scene, interpreted through an athletic perspective. Apart from the standout hybrid sneaker, the collection also encompasses jerseys, track jackets, and shorts. The silhouettes are rendered in a black colorway while the Swoosh branding and the number 11 comes in pops of white or neon. Contrasting materials are also added to the garments creating a tension that references the collection’s punk motifs.

Tinged in vibrant summer-hues, the collection spans a considered spread of shirts, chinos, jackets, hoodies and T-shirts to name a few. While bold co-branding can be found throughout the collection, a distinctive highlight is the “GET OFF MY DICKIES” print featured in various fonts and placements across a slew of silhouettes. Subtle adjustments to the silhouettes like added tapering, enlarged shirt sizing and raw hems elevate the classic styles. Other details like the altered horseshoe logo and cursive embroidery round out the collection.

BAPE 2018 Football Collection
A Bathing Ape joins in on the excitement of the quickly approaching 2018 FIFA World Cup. Comprised of mostly T-shirts, with the exception of a soccer ball, each item has motifs that nod towards the Beautiful Game. In the tees we see the signature BAPE head graphic remade with the panels of a soccer ball, and with a large text graphic displaying “BAPE PERFORMANCE.” The second T-shirt offering sees a more muted front logo, but opts for a larger graphic at the back, displaying a BAPE head transforming into a soccer ball. Lastly, the actual soccer ball mixes A Bathing Ape’s red and blue camo together via the panels and has small, thin text printed across it denoting the years that the brand has been in business — 1993 – 2018. Those who passed on the off-white x Nike “Football, Mon Amour” collection may consider this as an alternative.

As a clever way to incorporate dual branding throughout, Champion’s iconic “C” logo has been mirrored at the end of the letters “E” and “N,” spelling out “END” across the chest of the reverse weave hoodies, shirts and crewnecks.
