As the first product created under FUBU’s “Can’t Resist a Classic” campaign, the capsule references the brand’s ‘90s-era styles, offering 10 pieces based on the classics that helped to crystallize streetwear’s signature staples. The collection includes sweatshirts and long- and short-sleeve T-shirts in the brand’s trademark reds and blues as well as more neutral colors. Some pieces are emblazoned with “Bronx” and “Brooklyn,” spotlighting the brand’s New York City heritage.
FUBU was once carried in 5,000 stores around the globe during its heyday in the 1990s, said the brand’s vice president Keith Perrin, but today, selling through e-commerce and with “strategic partners” makes more sense.
“When the idea came up about reemerging our brand, we felt Century 21’s downtown location was the best fit—if you’re developing a relationship with a brick-and-mortar store you couldn’t ask for a better partner to reach diverse consumers,” Perrin explained. “Century 21 has always been the place to find premium clothes at a good price.”
