Big scarf energy.
Premium outerwear and accessories brand Nobis, has teamed up with Toronto Raptors centre and NBA champion Serge Ibaka to launch a limited-edition unisex capsule. Consisting of just nine pieces, the collection consists of seasoned essentials designed for colder temperatures like insulated olive green parkas, bomber jackets and hooded anoraks.
Highlights from the duo include a lightweight tactical vest with reflective trims and a parka that’s crafted from Nobis’ patented membrane lamination, seam-sealed construction and insulated with Canadian origin white duck down. Elsewhere, accessories like the nylon ripstop bucket include a tonal “S” logo and Ibaka’s signature “Mafuzzy” catchphrase on the brim.
“I’m thrilled to collaborate with Nobis on my first fashion collection. Nobis is very simple and chic, which made me really fall in love with the brand, making them the perfect partner,” says Ibaka. “Getting dressed to me is an art, and I wanted to express myself through this collection and share it with my fans.” – Serge Ibaka
Working directly with Ibaka to co-create the capsule, senior designer Michael Kerr, says:
“Our collaboration was a balancing act of style and performance. During our design meetings together, we strove to find the right line between fashion and function with the goal being ‘functional beauty’. Starting with the idea of leaning into the new direction of functionally adaptive layers, we came up with designs that also have a modern aesthetic, with a colour palette and several style elements inspired by Serge’s own wardrobe.”
The Serge Ibaka x Nobis capsule collection is available now in-store and on the brand’s website.
