No sport has influenced fashion to the same degree as baseball. From snapbacks to varsity jackets, the uniforms from the field have become the trends on the street.
It’s called a baseball cap for a reason, after all – one of the most iconic fashion items in the world worn by millions who have never watched a game let alone pitched a ball.
And whether it’s Brad Pitt in Moneyball or Chadwick Boseman in 42, the silver screen has helped spread the sport – and its style – across the globe.
So when BOSS teamed up with Russell Athletic, the result was always going to be a home run. Uniting expert BOSS tailoring and Russell Athletic’s instantly recognisable sportswear, the inaugural capsule released earlier this year was an instant hit.
Now, the new FW21 collection has been released, celebrating the collective spirit of team sports, the buzz of baseball, and the heritage of both BOSS and Russell Athletic.
Shot in NYC, the home of baseball, the collection brings a fresh perspective to retro Americana references. Taking inspiration from the archives of both brands, relaxed fits are achieved with easy, 90s-style cuts that are right for now.
The base palette of black, cream, and camel is brought to life by pops of clementine, navy, and mineral blue. Varsity-inspired bomber jackets are embellished with contrast chenille patches, handmade in Germany, reflecting BOSS’ dedication to craft and workmanship.
A special blended “BOSS x Russell Athletic” logo features across the capsule, resulting in statement branded sweatshirts which have been given the vintage treatment – a fitting tribute, considering Russell Athletic counts the first sweatshirt among its many inventions.
The FW21 collection reimagines beautifully crafted casualwear for a whole new generation.
