NY caps at the intersection of fashion & sports

by

EN: Inserting sporty elements into casual outfits is not a shock. Personally, I really like that the trends has come to a more relaxed look, although I do not support dropping the heels at all. I notice, with disappointment, that fewer and fewer women chose to wear them. The heels were and will remain the element that defines an outfit, complements it and gives it femininity.

Generally when I choose to wear something I like to know some details about that. So I decided to find out how the New York Yankees baseball team’s logo got to be worn by celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Madonna, Kim Kardashian, Jay Z, Denzel Washington, and soon after on Gucci runaway shows?

The history itself is very long and ample. At first, the logo appeared as a symbol of unity between the baseball team and the NYPD, at that time the police chief, Big Bill Devery was one of the co-owners of the team. Later, due to the popularity of the team at the international level, both locals and tourists adopted NY items like a uniform. A major contributor to the brand awareness has also been the Hollywood industry with its celebrities that have been seen wearing the already too well-known NY caps. From here until it reached the catwalk of the high fashion houses, it was only one step.

Did you know that … Louis Tiffany himself was the one who created the first NY design in order to pay tribute to a police officer fallen on duty?

RO: Elementele sport ingrate in tinute casual nu mai shocheza de mult. Personal, chiar imi place ca tendintele au ajuns intr-o zona mai relaxata desi, nu sustin deloc renuntarea la tocuri! Observ cu dezamagire ca din ce in ce mai putine femei aleg sa le mai poarte. Tocurile au fost si vor ramane elementul ce definesc tinuta, o intregesc si ii confera feminitate.

In general cand aleg sa port ceva imi place sa aflu si anumite detalii despre acel lucru. Tot astfel  mi-am pus si intrebarea cum a ajuns logo-ul echipei de baseball New York Yankees sa fie purtat de celebritati precum Victoria Beckham, Madonna, Kim Kardashian, Jay Z, Denzel Washington si imediat dupa in prezentarile Gucci?

Istoria in sine este foarte lunga si ampla. La inceput logo-ul a aparut ca o fuziune spirituala reprezentand unitatea intre echipa de baseball si NYPD, la vremea respectiva chiar seful politiei, Big Bill Devery era unul dintre co-detinatorii echipei. Mai tarziu, datorita popularitatii echipei la nivel international atat localnicii cat si turistii au adoptat accesoriile cu inscriptiile NY ca pe o uniforma. La aceasta crestere in popularitate a contribuit masiv si industria de la Hollywood cu ale sale celebritati care s-au afisat rand pe rand cu deja arhicunoscutele sapci NY. De aici si pana a urca pe podiumurile marilor case de moda nu a mai fost decat un pas.

Stiati ca… insusi Louis Tiffany a fost cel care a creat primul design NY in omagiul unui ofiter de politie cazut la datorie?
