Last August, Björn Borg paid homage to the Mars One space initiative in their SS16 show during Fashion Week in Stockholm. The tribute to this vision also led to the creation of a limited edition capsule collection which takes inspiration from the history of space travel and the journey to find new frontiers that took place during the 1970’s and 80’s. The much anticipated Sport Couture capsule collection is now launched featuring fashion darling DJ Mimi Xu and her daughter Maily Beyrens.
The collection was handmade in Sweden and includes 85 pieces of clothing plus six styles of matching socks, with items available in navy blue, white and red featuring a striped ribbed detailing for the ultimate vintage sport look. All pieces are numbered and are delivered in a bespoke gym-bag.
James Lee, Head of Design at Björn Borg says: “These garments are made to offer excellence in fit, quality and looks. Handmade in Stockholm, the bearer is guaranteed something truly unique. Every piece in this collection is different from the next, every seam sewn with passion and every cut calibrated to perfection. Each look is produced in a truly limited edition with one to ten pieces per style.”
