For this collection, NIGO adopted a minimalist color palette of soft pink and green, thus incorporating it into classic sportswear silhouettes. The designer drew inspiration from cherry blossoms, Japan’s national flower, as well as the traditional confection sakura mochi to convey the nation’s cultural and historic values.
Priced from ¥3,300 to ¥17,600 JPY (approximately $22 - $117 USD), the collection is comprised of 12 items, ranging from jerseys, T-shirts, shorts, and tracksuits to various sports accessories. Each piece is embellished with a heart-shaped cherry blossom motif along with adidas and JFA logos. As the centerpiece, the numbered jersey is emblazoned with the number “22,” to echo the 2022 FIFA World Cup event. At the same time, all football jerseys from the collection will have the OGIN signature engraved on the insides of the collar.
