Foot Locker has released a limited-edition set of “Black Panther” apparel. Created by Studio One Eighty Nine, a fashion social enterprise based between the U.S. and Ghana, the collection features motifs of the “Black Panther” Super Hero which first debuted in 1966. The collection features hoodies and T-shirts inspired by the cultural history of Africa.
“This collection is inspired by traditional patterns, symbols and techniques interwoven into cloth that communicates our values, history and message to future generations,” the designers of the collection said in a joint statement.
“Each symbol, pattern and color tell distinct stories that highlight cultural values such as the power of collaboration, legacy, heritage, inheritance,” says Abrima Erwiah, co-founder, Studio One Eighty Nine. “Partnering with an iconic retailer like Foot Locker was important to us to connect with Marvel fans and fashion lovers who share our ideals and want to express themselves through their clothing. We are excited for everyone to experience these designs and can’t wait to see how they style these pieces.”
The Marvel Black Panther Pack is available for purchase on FootLocker.com and at Foot Locker stores nationwide.
