KAWS designs Nike City Edition kit for The Brooklyn Nets 2023-2024 uniforms.
The kit will be available in Autumn in-store & online.
The top has a vibrant pattern inspired by KAWS’ 2019 Tension series. KAWS also reworks the “Nets” in his signature puffy, graffiti-style font.
KAWS’ “XX’ motif features on the waistband of the shorts. Finishing off the design is a KAWS autograph that rests right above the shorts’ specification tag.
The KAWS Brooklyn Nets collaboration is the first time KAWS has worked with a sports organisation and is the start of a two-year association.
KAWS collab with The Brooklyn Nets available in the Autumn from their store: netsstore.com
