BOSS’ latest Russell Athletic collaboration is pure baseball-inspired Americana
By Alex James Taylor | Fashion | 23 September 2021

Following the initial success of their debut collaboration earlier this year, BOSS and Russell Athletic return with a sophomore capsule for pre-Spring 2022.

Evoking the collective spirit of team sports – particularly the “buzz of baseball” – the collection is captured with a pre-ball game narrative, as photography Andrew Jacobs documents a group of friends hanging out in New York before “heading off on a road trip for an impromptu game of baseball” (in a very lovely red Dodge Coronet).

With this year’s Major League Baseball season drawing to an exciting end next month, the collection taps into that fever, uniting classic Americana references and youth sportswear codes within BOSS’ sharp tailoring and relaxed fits: bomber jackets are built with varsity details and contrast chenille patches nod to BOSS’ craftsmanship, while a special blended ‘BOSS x Russell Athletic’ logo fronts sweatshirts – a fitting tribute given that Benjamin Russell, the founder’s son, is celebrated for inventing the sweatshirt in 1926. The collection is rounded off by a range of luggage, ideal for fitting all your baseball gear in.
