Sergio Tacchini and STAMPD, the icon West Coast streetwear brand created by Chris Stamp, launched a capsule in Paris during Fashion Week 2019. Collaboration between the two brands has led to creation of a street-feel sneaker that reworks the historic Pat Cash from 1987 (the year when Cash won Wimbledon in Tacchini colours). Covered in a mesh that looks like tennis court surfaces and with a diagonal zip, the shoe was presented with a mini capsule of T-shirts and sweats.
The capsule created by Sergio Tacchini for Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch’s Belgian brand Les Hommes featured in a runway show on 12 January at the Rotonda della Besana in Milan. Iconic Sergio Tacchini tennis garments, linked to the history of the brand and its champions, were presented in dark colours typical of these two designer, with graphic customisation and macro zips.
