With le PÈRE, Amado created a pair of football kits that encompass his love of vibrant colors, distorted shapes and figures, and clever spins on traditional football motifs. The silhouettes are inspired by 90s football jerseys with an oversized boxy cropped fit complemented by a sumptuous Italian fabric that drapes like a sports jersey but feels like luxury. The capsule also includes pieces featuring Braulio’s reimagined le PÈRE “footballer” character in his own childlike, irreverent style.
