Intimissimi Uomo, a menswear brand focused on underwear, easywear, nightwear and beachwear within the Italian fashion collective, Calzedonia Group, has created a spring/summer 2022 collection inspired by King Features’ characters, Popeye the Sailor Man and Olive Oyl. 

The collection incorporates Popeye’s trademark nautical style in a collection that includes cropped pajamas, T-shirts, matching socks and swimwear. The designs, starring the Popeye and his partner, Olive Oyl, feature retro-inspired prints and stylings influenced by the characters.

We’re pleased to have Intimissimi Uomo on board to develop apparel that captures the brand’s essence and aligns with the long-term vision of the franchise. This impressive collection, supported by a strong marketing campaign and retail activations across multiple touchpoints, will surely give this collaboration great international attention and visibility.”
