An unexpected collaboration: Fashion and Baseball

The last time I can recall writing about fashion and baseball it was to announce that Donna Karan was the first designer to sponsor Yankee Stadium. But never in a million years did I think the next story coming from the pitcher’s mound would involve CFDA designers partnering with the NY Mets. Just goes to show that fashion is full of surprises. You never know where your next collaboration will come from.

Now on to the details, fashionable NY Mets fans will be pleased to hear that their sportswear is getting an upgrade. To celebrate fifty years in existence, for both the CFDA and the NY Mets, the two have come together to create sports magic. Designers participating in the collaboration include Billy Reid, Yigal Azrouel, Loomstate and Shipley & Halmos.

Could these pieces make an appearance front row at fashion week in September? Wait and see…
