Last year, Faith Connexion introduced its Kappa collaboration for FW17, punctuated with sequined track pants and chic officer trousers, all adorned with full-length Kappa logo tape. With the collab continued for its FW18 runway show in Paris, the two brands further extend their partnership into summer 2018, featuring the Italian brand’s tracksuits, with their now-iconic logo, which launched in ‘69.

For Summer 2018, in an ironic twist of Faith Connexion’s no-logo identity, the collective playfully manipulates the Kappa logo to extremes. The defining Omini bands get supersized, embellishing oversized trackpants, and a long sequined sport skirt, while the Kappa brand name also gets blown up, and emblazoned in bold on an overlong scarf, a long jersey streetwear-inspired dress, and a baggy sweatpant.

Furthermore, to celebrate the arrival of the latest pieces, the brand tapped rapper Vic Mensa once more, who was already featured in its SS17 lookbook, but this time, taking the creative lead to direct a video featuring an unreleased song performed in French by model-turned-singer Adonis Bosso, in which he seeks to "pay homage to great artists" relationships with their muse in the early 80s.

Both labels hosted a special evening at SPiN New York to commend their collab, with an intimate dinner catered by Cipriani, followed by a series of activations including a ping pong showdown, while guests enjoyed a live DJ set by Jinx with cocktails provided by 1800 Tequila. Notable guests included Vic Mensa, Kitty Cash, Young Paris, Ian Mellencamp, Ruth Gruca, Maria Buccellati, Lorenzo Boglione, and more.
