Kappa is embracing its Italian soccer heritage with today’s launch of the Kappa Kalcio collection. The performance soccer collection — soccer in Italian is “calcio” — has been given a streetwear twist with oversize logos emblazoned on the pieces in fluorescent colors. The collection includes a track jacket and pants, T-shirts, shorts and a tank as well as soccer accessories including high socks and even a soccer ball. Prices range from $22 to $109.
The collection will be sold on the Kappa web site as well as at its global retail partner, Sneakersnstuff’s shops in New York, Los Angeles, Stockholm, London, Paris and Berlin.
Lorenzo Boglione, vice president of sales at Basic Net, which owns Kappa, said: “Soccer has been an integral part of Kappa’s history, and also its current success. We are excited to globally launch the Kappa Kalcio collection, which helps us continue to push forward. We will use this capsule as a tool to reimagine performance product while making something that is just as comfortable and stylish off the pitch.”
