I always loved European soccer/football culture. In the US back in the 80s, I would try to drive to any small soccer shop I can to see the new international kits or posters that were out. To me, it was always big surprise to see how each country would celebrate their heritage through their kits.
I created this sponge fleece sweatshirt that uses all the hallmarks of 80s design: neon colors, vintage illustrations, era specific typefaces. All that is needed is some heavy synth music and a Rad vibe.
Each shirt is a work of art utilizing the fabric as a canvas. On the reverse side of the shirt, the artist's signature is placed into a motif inspired by his first professional tennis racquet, the Wilson Ultra 2. This practice echoes the 1980’s trend where designers added their name to apparel as a mark of high design and quality.
