STARTER DESIGNS LIMITED-EDITION “WHITE CHRISTMAS” JACKETS FOR BROOKLYN NETS & NEW YORK KNICKS
Starter Jackets made a much-anticipated comeback this year. The sought after sartorial treasures returned with the help of New York Giants legend and President of G-III Sports, Carl Banks. He joined forces with Iconix Brand to reintroduce the iconic, old-school outerwear. The classic satin designs have received a modern overhaul and are offered for a range sports teams. To add an element of excitement, Banks had explained early on that limited-edition styles would roll out on certain occasions.
We like the idea of limited-edition drops,” Banks said at the time. “If we do this right, we could have something that would be as special as sneaker drops; that can generate a kind of excitement that doesn’t currently exist in apparel.”
Among those specials drops were 300 blue satin jackets, produced to commemorate the 2013 MLB All-Star game. More recently, the company created a special Chicago Bulls “Black and Blue” satin style, exclusively for Foot Locker.
The latest limited-edition release celebrates the holiday season. Starter has designed an all-white satin jacket for the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks. Dubbed “White Christmas,” the fashions retail for $175. Only 1,000 jackets were made and they will be available on Christmas Day, at Foot Locker and Karmaloop.com. Check it out:
