Mitchell & Ness teams up with Bleacher Report for exclusive new 'NBA Remix Collection' fashion line
The line is a collaboration with hip-hop artists like Future, The Diplomats, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, E-40 and many more
American sports clothing company Mitchell & Ness have teamed up with sports culture website 'Bleacher Report' to release an exclusive 'NBA Remix Collection'.
The project is being done in collaboration with several huge names from hip-hop who have each reimagined and 'remixed' the logos of various teams. The Diplomats have taken on the New York Knicks, Future reps the Atlanta Hawks, Schoolboy Q has the Los Angeles Lakers, and Big Sean will handle the Detroit Pistons. DJ Khaled will put his spin on the Miami Heats logo, Master P and No Limit Soldiers rep the New Orleans Pelicans, E-40 will work on the uniforms for the Golden State Warriors, and finally, Wale has the Washington Wizards.
The artists in this collaboration are all repping their hometown teams and players they grew up idolizing. So this one-of-a-kind collaboration isn't just about fashion - it's a crossover between music and sport that sits where these two cultures intersect. That also means it isn't just a simple redesign on the existing logos and uniforms. The exclusive line has the artists incorporating their own logos as well as hometowns into the design.
For instance, Cameron and Jim Jones of The Diplomats have taken the Hardwood Classic Knicks jerseys and customized them with their own logo on the from and their birthplace, 'Harlem' on the back.
The collection includes the 'remixed' NBA team logos and 'uniform designs for a line of jerseys, T-shirts, hoodies, shorts, hats, and long-sleeved tees.' Check out the whole collection, modeled by the hip-hop stars who designed each line HERE.
This isn't the first time the NBA has partnered up with celebrities for its 'NBA Remix Collection'. More recently, they have released collections in collaboration with artists like Billie Eilish and Nas. Bleacher Report has also been very active this month with their Lamar Jackson 'MVP' line, the Derrick Rose x Adidas ‘Son of Chi’ collection, and the last installment of the 'D. Wade World Tour' Collection.
