MIKE TYSON X STAPLE | ROUND ONE
Posted on May 30 2013
Staple is pleased to introduce its latest capsule collection released in collaboration with Brooklyn native and former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson. What may seem like an unlikely pairing is linked by both Staple & Tyson's love and longstanding appreciation for the Pigeon; Iron Mike threw his first punch over one, and Staple has since adopted the mascot to represent the energy all urban dwellers possess. The Mike Tyson x Staple Summer 2013 capsule collection consists of four limited edition graphic t-shirts that illustrate Iron Mike's widespread influence and the shared affinity for Pigeons that the pugilist and the streetwear brand have been famously known for. The four graphic tees were produced in limited quantities and are available in multiple colorways at select Staple retailers worldwide. This Summer 2013 capsule collection will be followed up in the Fall to include two more graphic tees, an embroidered hooded sweatshirt, fleece varsity jacket, and an exclusive Mitchell & Ness Snapback cap.
