Fashion and athletics may seem like strange bedfellows, but we’re kind of loving the CFDA‘s new partnership with the New York Mets. In celebration of their coinciding 50th anniversaries, the CFDA tapped four of its designers—Billy Reid, Yigal Azrouël, Loomstate’s Scott Haan and Rogan Gregory and Shipley & Halmos’ Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos—to whip up some sporty tops and sweatshirts honoring the Mets. The pieces will be available at Citi Field and on Edition01.com beginning July 24, and net proceeds will benefit the Mets Foundation and the CFDA.
"We are excited to be working with the New York Mets on a CFDA-member-designed mini collection commemorating our 50th anniversaries," CFDA CEO Steven Kolb said in this morning’s press release. "The creativity of our designers is a fresh approach to team merchandise while supporting charitable efforts of both organizations."
