As the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Season enters its final stretch before the Playoffs, Mitchell & Ness is taking their Homecourt Collection to Atlanta in collaboration with iconic sneaker and streetwear boutique, Wish ATL. Originally launched in January 2022, Mitchell & Ness’ Homecourt Collection offers NBA team-specific apparel and headwear assortments curated alongside the country’s most beloved and iconic streetwear boutiques.
Since its inception in 2004, Wish ATL has set the gold standard for streetwear boutiques and habitually risen the bar as a global trend leader and cultural icon in Atlanta and beyond. Implanted in Atlanta in 1968 after stints in St. Louis, Milwaukee, and Buffalo, the Hawks burst onto the NBA scene and immediately personified the funky, soulful energy of the ’70s.
Paying homage to the Hawks’ rich history, the collection features elements inspired by the ‘player’ aesthetic of the ’70s, including plush velour, bold striping, and metallic gold highlights. The collection also nods to the State of Georgia’s heritage with peach-colored accents accompanied by a rich burgundy reimagination of the Hawks’ primary team red.
Launching on Saturday, 3/12 on www.wishatl.com and in-store at Wish ATL’s Moreland Ave location, the collection includes snapbacks, bucket hats, jerseys, shorts, vintage ringer tees, and a velour warm-up jacket and tear-away pant with prices ranging from $38 – $215 USD.
To capture the collection’s essence, the campaign launch’s photoshoot features WNBA star & Atlanta Dream Owner Renee Montgomery, accredited Music Producer & Executive Don Cannon, Radio DJ Personalities & Hosts Kenny Burns, Big Tigger, and Fly Guy DC, WNBA star Angel McCoughtry, Recording Artist & Activist Killer Mike, Original Fani Founder & Designer Fani, A&R Manager Rachel Jackson, ATATF Founder Kordale Toomer, and Founder of AEBLHOOPS Basketball League & Finish First Marketing Agency Jah Rawlings.
