The air is getting crisper here in New York City and it seems like within just a few days we transitioned into autumn. This fact gets the Active Team really excited because it means one thing: Football season. Last week we engaged in some football friendly activity during Fashion’s Night Out, and this week we are back to for a round up the most exciting things happening in the NFL zone.
For starters, the incredible product coming from our friends at 47 Brand is bringing back memories of football’s earlier years. We gave a sneak peek last week when we stopped by its FNO party here in New York, but have since seen images of the whole line. From the tailored cuts to the vintage, cozy appearance, it’s great gear for that game on the couch or at the bar when full on face paint isn’t quite appropriate.
Another fun re-appearance this season is Victoria’s Secret’s PINK line. The iconic brand began to build a name for themselves with feminine, stylish answers for the female sports fan and haven’t didn’t let us down this season in the least. With sassy sayings and jerseys cut specifically for women, it allows a little extra spice, while still feeling cute and representing one’s team. Do we even need to mention the little booty shorts with fun sayings like, “Draft me?” we didn’t think so…
Last, but clearly not least is the HUGE fact that Nike has taken over the sponsorship of the NFL this season. We’ve been watching and reporting on the new uniforms for months and even got to see the official unveiling. (We have to admit, this one is close to our hearts. We LOVE football!) In true Nike fashion, the brand came in with a bang. That, of course, included new gear for all 32 teams and integration of everything from lifestyle sneakers to on-field uniforms. With its signature glove graphics and the fully integrated system of dress, there wasn’t a detail missed on the Nike Elite 51 Uniform, which looked especially incredible during the season opener game between the NY Giants and the Dallas Cowboys on September 5th 2012.
So get excited, and get ready… because football season is here! -Erin Mintun
