Thom Browne announces a limited-edition capsule collection celebrating FC Barcelona’s Barca Foundation. The capsule represents an exciting continuation of Thom Browne and FC Barcelona’s partnership, with all proceeds from capsule sales directly benefiting the Barça Foundation.
The Foundation was established in 1994 as a way for Barcelona locals and fans to live the club’s motto of “More Than a Club,” providing developmental tools and programs to work for the inclusion of vulnerable children and youth through sport worldwide.
The capsule collection highlights the shared values of the Thom Browne brand and the club: humility, effort, ambition,respect and teamwork. All proceeds from the capsule will contribute to support necessary adjustments to the Foundation’s programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through these adaptations, we will ensure that the children participating in the Foundation’s programs can stay involved and active from the safety of their home, at a time when connection is vital to their physical and emotional well-being.
Thom Browne is a proud sponsor of the Barça Foundation’s Social Inclusion Program in New York. The Social Inclusion Program— is made possible through a partnership between the Barça Foundation, the NYC Department of Education, and the support of Thom Browne. The program implements the FutbolNet methodology developed by Barça using sport as a tool to help students in participating schools develop and strengthen social-emotional skills.
The club and brand are joining together to ensure that, now more than ever, no child is left offside. FC Barcelona’s gold, maroon and blue and iconic crest is envisioned across a special edition Thom Browne x FC Barcelona wool short suit, button-down cardigan and white oxford shirt. Along the same colorway, accessories for the collection include a club tie, socks, knit hat and scarfs all emblazoned with the club’s signature crest. A special edition Thom Browne folio in pebbled black leather with the crest and grosgrain zip pull completes the offering.
This collection represents Thom Browne’s continued empowerment of the missions of athletes, on and off the field, paralleling their narratives through design. Through the Foundation’s four lines of action– youth violence prevention, access to education, social inclusion, and social innovation, this charitable alliance positions sport as one of the principal agents of social change. Thom Browne x FC Barcelona Barça Foundation Capsule Collection is available now at the boutique in the Miami Design District.
