Home Field Advantage: CFDA Designers Team Up With The Mets
The Mets lost last night at Citi Field, but it was a win for the CFDA, which has partnered with the ball club to celebrate their mutual 50th anniversaries with some designer-made Mets merchandise. Yigal Azrouël, Billy Reid, Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos of Shipley & Halmos, and Rogan Gregory and Scott Mackinlay Hahn of Loomstate—the designers behind the new tanks, tees, caps, and baseball jerseys—all got their photo ops at home base, and, once the game got started, enjoyed the best seats in the house in the owners’ box. For many CFDA-ers it was their first time at Citi Field, and for Azrouël it’s his last—at least for this season. “My summer’s pretty much over,” he said. But fall holds lots of promise. In addition to his runway show, he’s opening up shop on Madison Avenue during the first week of September, and he’s also planning his wedding. Here, Azrouël and others at the game. The CFDA-Mets products are available online at Edition01.com.
