Farfetch and Buro 24/7 have teamed up with seven emerging designers to launch an exclusive sportswear capsule collection that reimagines the football kit in tribute to the World Cup for the 2018 Buro Fashion Forward Initiative.
The capsule collection features a range of menswear, womenswear and unisex pieces from some of the best up-and-coming designers including Lenki Lenki from the Ukraine, who added new silhouettes to this collection, while Dan Shan for China designed pieces to celebrate not only competition but the beauty in being vulnerable.
