Italian Fashion House and Major Sports League Collaborates

Hit a home-run with the new capsule collection collaboration between a luxury Italian fashion house and a baseball federation.

After a successful home-run collection last 2018, the Gucci x Major League Baseball collaboration is back and better. The previous iteration of the partnership was led by the then-creative director, Alessandro Michele. Now that the brand is in a new era, the collaboration brought a fresh design personality to the Italian brand.

The collection is composed of classic Gucci design codes mixed with a fun and playful spin. Collegiate jackets, jogger pants, and baseball jerseys parade the collection. Aside from the classic sporty athleisure wear, the collaboration brought out new styles. A denim cut-out vest and jeans are embellished with embroideries, cardigans of different colors are branded with the various teams of the league, and a heavily-patterned bowling shirt made a surprise appearance in the collection.
