A relationship which started back in 2013 at the MLS All-Star event with then-SKC striker CJ Sapong, a player LBF launched a capsule collection with, has now blossomed into a collaboration between brand and club.
LBF say they fell in love with the city when they visited in 2013, and the capsule collection with Sapong led to a good relationship being built with the club. Last year, the brand flew out for the MLS All-Star event, not to release a collection, but to discuss a collaboration with the MLS club. 14 months later and we have it. LBF x SKC.
A collaboration that explores how football culture is now integrated into the streetwear scene. The beautiful collection challenges the notion of supporter apparel.
The foundation of the collection is based on the chequered pattern. Children's Mercy Park, a place where Sporting have gone unbeaten since May 2016, see's teams come and get blitzed with Sporting's speed and this has resulted in the chequered flag being waved in the stands.
Each piece in the collection is created from scratch. LBF have had the fabrics woven and milled to their specifications, offering very close attention to detail to provide the highest possible quality.
Ebun Olaloye and the LBF team have obsessed over every detail so all the fans have to do is focus their energy on pushing Sporting to another trophy whilst looking cool as ice.
The collection drops 29/9/2017. Find it here.
