ICA x Sports Banger scarf

The ICA has announced the launch of a new ICA X Sports Banger scarf. Launched for winter 2023 it marks the first collaboration between the institute and the eccentric DIY fashion house. A proportion of sales proceeds support the ICA’s events, exhibitions, and learning program.

This scarf tells a story of solidarity, beauty, and community and features symbols inside primary coloured discs – reminiscent of protest button badges. The reverse side features a cracked ‘BANGER’ graphic, lifted straight off the cover of their recently published book ‘Sports Banger: Lifestyles of the Poor, Rich & Famous.’

About the artist

Sports Banger is a genre-defying, boundary-breaking fashion collective run by Jonny Banger, who interrogates British pop culture, fashion, class, and politics through the subversion and (mis)appropriation of branding.

Jonny Banger is an artist, raver & the founder of Sports Banger, a London-based clothing brand and rag-tag collective. In 2020, Jonny exhibited over 200 government letters defaced by kids and young people from across the UK at London’s Foundling Museum (where he was made a Fellow later that year) and received a Haringey Heroes Award from the Mayor of Haringey for his work. Sports Banger won the Innovation & Excellence Award at DJ Magazine’s Best of British Awards 2020. Jonny has had work exhibited at the London College of Fashion, the Museum of Applied Arts (Vienna) and in other independent venues.
