'King James' and the king of flowers
Basketball superstar James Harden has been working with Y-3 to create a six-piece capsule of apparel, footwear and accessories. Essential to the collection is the botan flower, also known as ‘The King of Flowers’, enriching the clean-cut pieces with splashes of pink. The flower is said to symbolise bravery, nobility, honour, respect and good fortune, qualities that also represent the sportsman.
Along with the flower-adorned pieces comes the Y-3 BYW (Boost You Wear) Bball, a trainer appropriate for wearing on-and-off the court. Pre-launching in LA at 747 Warehouse St, Adidas’ two day celebration of creativity and basketball culture, the range is scheduled to release globally in April.
