The launch of the new collection capsule, weaving together the iconic Nike brand, the cherished FC Barcelone, and the street-savvy Amsterdam-based Patta, is less a debut and more a celebration of shared passion. These global icons intertwine, breathing life into a range of apparel that resonates with the pulsating energy of unwavering Barça fans, a sentiment echoing the revered Culers del Món banner. At the heart of this synergy is a revelation of shared identity, an eclectic blend that transcends geographical borders and generational gaps.
“Amsterdam and Barcelona have been connected for generations, and modern football is still dominated by adaptations of the Dutch School,” remarks Guillaume Schmidt, co-founder of Patta. These profound connections birth a Collection Capsule that’s intimately tied to the legacy of the sport and the souls intertwined within it.
The Nike FC Barcelona Patta Collection Capsule, launching on the world stage this month, ranges from jerseys echoing the bold aesthetics of the clubs’ rich history to the anthem jacket and pant. These, along with hoodies, T-shirts, and caps, aren’t just pieces of clothing—they are threads of a legacy woven with passion, triumph, and the unyielding spirit of Blaugrana.
The pinnacle of this collection boasts a limited-edition Air Max Plus shoe. Its design, a harmonious blend of Deep Royal Blue and Noble Red, is a visual serenade to the iconic Barça colours, ensuring that with every step, the wearers are reminded of the Culers’ unyielding spirit.
Vincent van de Waal, Patta’s creative director, eloquently encapsulates the collection’s ethos. “The human heart and circulatory system imagery isn’t merely a design; it’s a narrative of unity, showcasing the pulsating energy of Culers worldwide,” he expresses. The Barça-inspired colorways, adorned with the club crest and nuanced details reflective of the national Catalan flag, epitomize the harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.
Destined to grace the world on October 13 online and in Patta stores, and subsequently on October 16 on the SNKRS app and select Nike partner stores, this collection is a clarion call to fans of all ages. The Nike FC Barcelona Patta Collection Capsule transcends the barriers of language, geography, and time, offering a touchpoint of unity, a shared identity that pulses in the veins of every Culer.
