New Balance and Baiteze FC have linked up with Korean design studio NivelCrack to unveil a limited-edition ‘East meets West’ capsule for the 2021/22 season.
Featuring an England lion and South Korean tiger across the designs, the ‘East meets West’ collection is inspired by unity across football’s global community and celebrates the coming together of two vibrant worlds – East London and West Seoul.
The reveal coincides with New Balance’s renewal of its sponsorship of Baiteze FC for the 2021/22 season, which will see the brand continue to provide the East London outfit with all technical wear after a second successful season as grassroots football partner.
The ten-piece capsule includes a custom Baiteze football shirt that arrives in a wavey camouflage print in black and blue, alongside the squad’s signature orange tones that regularly light up the Essex Sunday Corinthian League.
A bespoke jacket, bucket hat, t-shirt, cap, jacket, hoodie, and sweatpants are also added to the collection, with each item created to express the themes of teamwork and unity around the world.
Speaking on the reveal, Baiteze Director Ebenezer Gyamerah said: “Baiteze FC is excited about the ‘East Meets West’ collaboration with Nivelcrack and the opportunity to celebrate two grassroots communities that continually push the boundaries of what it means to be part of a local team. The collection uses bespoke design to highlight the universal language of football and how it unites people the world over whether from London or Seoul”.
