RUSSELL ATHLETIC AUTUMN/WINTER 2020
RUSSELL ATHLETIC CELEBRATES AMERICA’S FAMOUS ‘LITTLE LEAGUES’ FOR AUTUMN/WINTER 2020
Tradition, innovation and expertise have always been the trademarks of Russell Athletic. In the 1930s, the company invented the sweatshirt, a defining moment in fashion history. Steering its collections from track to street, Russell Athletic continues to present updated sports and leisurewear that fuses mid-century Americana with details, fabrics and shapes made for modern lifestyle living.
For AW‘20, Russell Athletic pays homage to America’s famous ‘Little Leagues’; the junior sports teams where kids get down and dirty on neighbourhood tracks and fields, and future sporting stars are born!
In keeping with the Little Leagues’ rough and ready spirit, Russell Athletic has designed a ‘Modern Archive’ collection that is brave, bold and just a little rough around the edges.
The collection features logos, badges and side panels rendered in DIY techniques such as chain stitching and fuzzy fleece lettering. Jackets, pants and sweats are cut in boxy, slightly oversized silhouettes, recalling a vintage, more timeless approach to sports culture and team ethos.
Pieces baring Russell Athletic’s famous Eagle R logo take a timely leap by becoming completely unisex, with deconstructed, iconic cuts that look great on both sexes and colour-blocked patterns in soft, cross-gender tones.
For AW’20, Russell Athletic once again draws inspiration from its past to create timeless clothing for today’s local heroes.
