Authentic Summer '21
Kappa made its debut in 1967 and evolved into a full-fledged fashion line as they focused on providing sophisticated and functional elements to everyday wear. Competing against top names such as Tommy Hilfiger and Polo, Kappa was determined to be different by introducing their signature Omini logo in 1969. The man and woman sitting back to back made a statement within the industry and showed the progressive mindset Kappa had against their competition. They would then utilize this image on many designs including their sought-after tracksuits. The fashion label was able to gain sponsorships and showcase their suits on many platforms from the Olympics to the national soccer league. Top-tier athletes would wear Kappa tracksuits before and after their event which grew their name as many fans would want to wear the same styles as their favorite players. Kappa’s utilitarian aesthetic spread across the world of sports and eventually trailed into a lifestyle. They are now one of the most recognizable brands as they produce a wide range of staples for every occasion.
Most recently, Kappa has released its Summer 2021 collection. Titled ‘Authentic Summer,’ the delivery sticks true to the brand’s heritage by shining a light on their signature Omini logo. Working alongside the motif, we also are introduced to new bold patterns that remind us of a tropical vacation. Kappa pays homage to summer sunsets on the beach and tropical getaways with bold colors and prints. A range of tees and shorts make their debut along with new iterations of the traditional tracksuit. The collection gets you ready for the warmer season with styles that can be worn by the pool or on a casual outing.
Be prepared for the next beach or pool day with the Authentic Highgate Swim Shorts. Its bold imagery encompasses the shorts and reminds us of beach cities during sunset. Cut from polyester, the shorts feature a mesh inner lining for optimal breathability and comfort during times of wear. Functional attributes are featured at the waistband as adjustable drawcords can be tailored to your liking. Similar themes are seen with the Islington Shorts as natural flowers and Kappa’s Omini logo work hand in hand for the unique build. Kappa’s high-quality craftsmanship is emphasized in each piece as seamless trim and top-tier fabrication enhance its finish compared to other styles. Complete your fit with Kappa's wide range of sandals. The contemporary styling of the 222 Banda Mitel 4 is a bold design whereas the Adam 2 Slides revert to traditional slide construction.
New colorways and designs of signature tees make their debut as seen with the Paroo T-Shirt. Introduced in Dark Yellow and Red, each tee subtly showcases signature branding on the chest and sleeves for a distinctive look. Its regular fit is emphasized by its cotton base and ribbed crewneck. These can be paired with the Sangone Shorts for a more utilitarian and cohesive style. A more modern approach can be achieved with the Tape Avirec 2 T-Shirt. Its bold colors are emphasized against a comfortable cotton base making them lightweight and breathable during times of wear. A mixture of printed branding and taped piping creates a statement that is perfect for the summer. Kappa is welll-known for providing new variants of traditional styles that upkeeps modern trends while reverting to their heritage as seen with the Carambie Jacket and Tape Cabal T-Shirt.
