Craig Green incorporates both light and shadow, teaming up with Björn Borg for a limited edition sports fashion capsule collection of men’s, women’s and unisex clothing and underwear. This marks the debut for Green in designing a full sportswear collection. The collection is officially presented during Fashion Week Stockholm on February 1.
Award-winning London designer Craig Green has made a name for himself mixing minimal garments and dramatically sculptured body-pieces.
“The Craig Green x Björn Borg Collection marries my conceptual fascination with light and shadow, with the utilitarian beauty of Björn Borg’s heritage. The idea is to have a multifunctional garment for both men and women that is not really gender-specific. Functional components become a distinct design feature, and a bold logo is replaced by a single circle – a development of the whole motif I often explore”, said Craig Green.
The collection consists of 20 pieces of clothing in off-white and black, and will be sold globally as of October 2016. Looks include padded trousers for men and women, performance running leggings and a lightweight technical raincoat with drawstring details, combining performance with fashionable sportswear in a conceptual mix.
