This special NBA capsule line showcases a range of clothing items, including T-shirts, hoodies, jackets, shorts, and headwear, NBA and BTS’ SUGA signature Agust D label.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) and Mitchell & Ness have jointly introduced an exciting new NBA capsule collection, a collaborative effort with SUGA, who serves as both an NBA Ambassador and a star member of the BTS group.
SUGA, the accomplished South Korean rapper, songwriter, and producer, has lent his creative expertise to the clothing line. The collection highlights a variety of merchandise, including t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, shorts, and headwear, each bearing the insignia of six NBA teams: the Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, LA Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, and New York Knicks. The selection of these teams was based on the U.S. cities where SUGA performed during his recent solo world tour, SUGA | Agust D TOUR ‘D-DAY’. The unique SUGA x NBA capsule collection, a product of the collaboration between SUGA and Mitchell & Ness, prominently features SUGA’s Agust D emblem, symbolizing his association with the NBA. Additionally, the collection incorporates design elements inspired by his album “D-DAY.”
