THE NEW YORK METS + CFDA HIT A STYLISH HOMERUN
Considering that they share the stage with the Yankees and have had a bit of trouble getting into that World Series club for a while, being a Mets fan comes with some baggage. And now it actually comes with some designer clothing. The Council of Fashion Designers of America has teamed up with the Mets on a collection to mark the 50th anniversaries of both groups. Billy Reid, Yigal Azrouël, Loomstate, Shipley & Halmos get things started with an assortment of sportswear like tanks, Tees, Henleys and a hoodie that’ll be on sale, for a limited time, at Citi Field and edition01.com. The Net proceeds will go to the Mets Foundation, which benefits low income communities in New York City, as well as to the CFDA, which helps foster emerging fashion talent. This, dear readers, is a fashionable homerun. Check it out here.
