Albino & Preto x Bodega - 'Sometimes Friends Fight' - 7/28
Reflecting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s popularity in small gyms and dojos everywhere, Jiu-Jitsu outfitters Albino and Preto have paired up with Bodega on a capsule collection encompassing both the traditional roots and contemporary style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
A classic white Gi features unbleached fabric, references the martial arts garments used before the common availability of textile treatments, while an indigo version showcases the indigo garment dying technique that Japanese construction is renowned for. Both colors feature skirting taken from traditional Judo attire and an inside yolk pattern taken from a Yosegi puzzle box, as a nod to the puzzle A&P logo, as well as the puzzle of knowledge and technique to be solved when one undertakes the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Casual pieces, shorts and graphic tees emphasize the notion of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu not just as a sport or a martial art, but as a comprehensive way of life.
