The main piece in the mens collection is inspired by the 1980’s football jersey, as worn by the main characters in the animation film. This polyamide micro-piqué polo shirt features a scarlet red V on the chest, right under the multicolor splatter pattern.
The main features in the girls’ collection are a polo shirt and a tank top with number 27 printed in the front, plus two plain and indented collar polo dresses featuring the crest on the chest.
