Sport is consistently influencing fashion. Most recently, we’ve seen collaborations between the likes of Palace and JuventusReal Madrid and Yohji YamamotoParis Saint-Germain and GOAT, and even an exclusive Virgil Albloh-designed football boot for Kylian Mbappe. However, below the surface level of high-profile collaborations, sport and fashion’s crossover is one that is personally embraced by artists and designers around the world. For example, when Hypebeast recently spoke with London-based artist Reuben Dangoor, he said: “I have such a passion for sport, that my head goes to the same place as the people on the court or field and it makes me think of interesting ways of being able to interpret that.” With this in mind, emerging Manchester-based label Di Santi Studio has just presented its latest collection for Fall/Winter 2022 and it takes inspiration from the sport of basketball and the brand’s connection to it. 

Launched by Angola-born and Portugal-raised designer Osvaldo Borges, his newest “Saint Kobe” collection takes things back to his last full year in Portugal and explores his father’s athletic lifestyle and interests in sport. The capsule consists of three “Saint Kobe” tracksuits in black, “Pastel Brown,” and “Marl Grey” colorways along with two T-shirts in black and “Ecru.” Each design features a newly-interpreted Di Santi logo, with this latest badge being inspired by the late Kobe Bryant. And while each design comes in a soft hue, each colorway honors popular Angola patterns along with the Portugal national football team’s kit colors from 2002.

You can have a closer look at Di Santi Studio’s “Saint Kobe” collection above and it is available on the official Di Santi website from September 29. 

In other fashion news, Raf Simons has confirmed he will be showing in London.
