NYC Rapper-Designed Sportswear

This Action Bronson Apparel Line Was Created with Packer Shoes

— August 28, 2017 — Fashion
In time for the fall, an Action Bronson apparel line was released in collaboration with Packer Shoes, along with an editorial that highlights the versatility of the athletic looks that comprise it.

As the NYC-born rapper is also a chef, the blue and yellow jerseys that are featured in the collection celebrate a fictional team that hails from Blue Chips University. The acronym for the imaginary university is featured on the fronts of all of the jerseys, along with the number 7. To denote different teams and to offer consumers more color options to suit their lifestyles, the basketball jerseys and shorts can also be purchased in more minimal-looking white variations.

The collection was officially launched on August 25th, and is currently available through select retailers, as well as online.
