In yet another MLS collaboration, The Jiberish and Colorado Rapids deliver big style with the the latest collection.
When teams partner with designers, you tend to get this cheesy I-really-want-to-be-on-trend type of product. So far MLS has avoided any such partnership. The latest coming by way of The Jiberish and Colorado Rapids.
The two brands released a promo for the new line, which has a very different feel than any other sport/fashion collaboration you might have seen. With low key folk music and chill vibes around the city and the satisfying “thump” the ball makes as it comes off the boot, Rapids players, Shkëlzen Gashi, Marlon Hairston, and Dillon Serna, show off the line in this beautiful shortfilm.
The line itself is simple, yet bold. Managing Director for Jiberish, Pete Drago, gives some insight behind the creation of the line. “We wanted to reimagine the Colorado Rapids franchise and brand through a vintage sports lens with a nod to the history of the State of Colorado and our natural surroundings. We used fabrics that address the unique weather we experience here. Materials such as 260gsm baby french terry for the t-shirts we created provide more warmth and comfort on cool days. Japanese 60/40 Cotton/Nylon blends were sourced for the popover jacket which has technical water resistant properties while still retaining a soft hand feel. The fleece used in our crewnecks and hoodies is our custom milled 375gsm cotton and is impossibly soft to the touch.”
“The collection as a whole was designed to be interchanged and layered with multiple combination options. It was such a cool opportunity for us to work with MLS and our hometown team that we really went in on the design and production of the pieces. It would have been a lot easier to just make a few tees and sweatshirts on blanks but we decided to go completely cut-and-sew with the range either custom milling or sourcing all of our own materials at our favorite markets. We could not be happier with how it all came together.”
The new line will be available for purchase starting May 5th, available on the Jiberish website or inside Colorado Rapids Stadium.
