Game Day with BOSS x Russell Athletic
In response to the immensely successful debut capsule earlier this year, BOSS x Russell Athletic return for the Pre-Spring 2022 collection. A union of the two unlikely brand’s takes inspiration from the world of baseball as it intertwines the modern tailoring of BOSS and the bold casualwear we have become accustomed to with Russell Athletic.
Celebrating the art of team sport, the collection captures a snapshot of New York’s youth culture, with vibrant colours and an urban aesthetic at the core of the collection. Citing retro Americana as an influence, BOSS x Russell Athletic take a fresh perspective on the concept with refined silhouettes and bold graphics that are universally suited to almost any wardrobe.
Looking back at the house’s archives, it is clear the collaboration honours the heritage of both brands as timeless neutral tones are met with an injection of clementine, blue, and navy that embrace heavily logoed t-shirts, sweatshirts, and sneakers. Varsity-inspired bomber jackets are decorated with expertly embellished chenille patches and intricately embroidered patchwork, showcasing BOSS’ attention to detail when it comes to dedicated craftsmanship and its strong focus on luxury fabrics.
The epitome of authentic and modern menswear, the Pre-Spring collection is graced with some of BOSS’ signature silhouettes including double-breasted wool jackets and traditional long-line coats in a familiar sophisticated style, only to be given the Russell Athletic treatment as the garments embrace relaxed fits that are as equally suited to the city as they are to the track.
An array of essential pieces are enhanced with vintage artwork and a specially designed “BOSS x Russell Athletic” logo, often appearing on sweatshirts as a tribute to Russell Athletic who attribute the first sweatshirt as one of its many awe-inspiring inventions.
With game day favourites uniting the two iconic houses, the collaboration hits a home run with an expertly crafted selection of cheerful staple pieces and playful graphics that feel at home in just about anyone’s wardrobe.
