The International Champions Cup 2019 has been launched alongside an exclusive collection of relics designed by Daniel Arsham that celebrate the tournament.
Arsham’s previous work includes collaborations with adidas and KITH, as well as hastily-assembled party playlist favourites Pharrell Williams and Usher, and now ten iconic pieces have been given Arsham’s signature eroded treatment, and are currently being shown at a pop up designed by his design studio, Snarkitecture. Arsham said that the collection “will celebrate the timelessness and universality of the sport” and would bring the ICC to the forefront of an enthusiastic US football-loving audience.
The pieces include a tribute to the ball that Drake presented at the 2017 ICC, alongside an eroded version the 2018 ICC trophy, and a beautiful sculptured version of the adidas X 18.1 boots worn by some of the players from last year’s tournament.
The exhibition also includes a limited-edition clothing capsule, with the all-white merchandise being dropped today, with the all-black version dropping tomorrow. The pieces include tees and hoodies bearing the newly updated ICC logo mixed with Arsham’s signature style.
If you’re in New York, you can check out the exhibition at 107 Grand Street, 28th–29th March 10am–5pm.
