Baseball gear is about to get a high fashion makeover, thanks to Gucci. The Italian fashion house debuted its Pre-Fall 2018 collection today and amongst its signature rich prints, retro-inspired pieces, and sparkling sequins was a first look at its upcoming collaboration with the Major Baseball League.
Featured in the collection’s lookbook photos are a variety of Gucci x MLB Yankees hats ranging in color and style. From a classic Yankees hat emblazoned with Gucci’s snake emblem to a pink rendition and even a Gucci x Yankees beanie, the toppers are just the first of the fashion and baseball mashup. According to a release from the fashion brand, the collaboration will extend to include several of MLB’s historic teams in both the apparel and accessories categories.
More of the Gucci x MLB apparel and accessories will debut as part of the brand’s upcoming Fall 2018 collection, which hits the runway in Milan this February.
It’s unclear how much the Gucci x MLB hats will retail for but standard Gucci caps typically range from $240 – $360. As for the MLB, this marks the first time the baseball league has teamed up with a luxury fashion brand. Take a look at more of the collaboration below:
