Brand: F.C. Real Bristol (F.C.R.B)
Key Pieces: Checkerboard prints dominate the latest F.C.R.B collection, which is inspired by high-octane racing. The NASCAR checks feature on shorts, long-sleeve tees, and jackets.
Release Date: Coming soon.
Editor’s Notes: Rep SOPHNET.’s apocryphal soccer team, F.C. Real Bristol, in its latest NASCAR-esque SS19 collection. The offering of jerseys and hooded tracksuits depart from previous drops, taking aesthetic cues from the world of car-racing.
Shorts and long sleeve tees feature NASCAR’s checked pattern and familiar flame motif. Reversible PDK jackets come in black and white, blue and lime, and a loud lime, blue, orange, black, and white color combination.
The collection is brought (almost) to life in an uncanny lookbook. Life-size, mannequin sportsmen donning rubber masks play soccer in ribbed hem tops and sweatsuit sets, and sidle up to race cars in the collection hero, multi-logo supporter jacket. The wider collection is a little less in-your-face, with a number of ventilation chino pants, blouson jerseys, and shirts in muted tones, for away from the race track.
