Arsenal have joined forces with adidas Originals for a second retro-infused collaborative collection, featuring strong early 90s vibes in classic trefoil style. Throwing it back to an iconic time in the Gunners illustrious history, the Three Stripes deliver again with exquisite results.
Almost exactly one year on from the debut adidas Originals x Arsenal retro collection, the partnership delves into a second glorious series. The first capsule set the bar high with the successful relaunch of the famous Bruised Banana jersey and the latest collection carries on that throwback flavour as adidas continue to drop pure fire since they rocked up to the Emirates to replace PUMA.
The new collection takes fans back to the 1990-1992 years, with a range of statement pieces from that beautiful 90-92 home shirt to hoodies and track jackets that all feature that famed adidas Original trefoil logo which featured on all Arsenal replica at the time. Thirty years on and this retro-licked collection has gone full circle to being culturally relevant in lifestyle circles once more. Oversized logos, bold branding and block colours. You love it.
You might have seen the Arsenal men’s and women’s team wear the jackets in the fixtures against Burnley and Manchester City respectively at the week as the club teased the collection with a star studded video featuring current and ex-players. The tease is over, the collection has dropped. A timely lift for Arsenal fans, good luck picking just one piece, though.

As part of Audiomack’s committing to Ghana outside of just music and focused on giving back to the community and culture, the music streaming and discovery platform, in collaboration with Amsterdam-based fashion label Daily Paper, is funding the restoration of the football pitch at Accra Girls Senior High School after it sponsored this year’s annual football tournament.
This annual tourney by Daily Paper is a celebration of the ongoing initiative to empower the youth and give back to the Ghanaian community by reinforcing commitment through sports. Since 2017, Daily Paper, founded by three close friends, Hussein Suleiman, Abderrahmane Trabsini, and Jefferson Osei, has been consistent in showcasing and supporting Ghanaian youths. Audiomack is no different.
This year’s tournament took place inside the Accra Girls Senior High School and saw a great line-up of the best African creatives and athletes. Alongside Daily Paper and Audiomack, the teams included SmallGod, Eunice Beckham, La Même Gang, and members from Daily Paper, Free the Youth, Young, Melanin Unscripted, and Native Mag. The kits were designed by Daily Paper in collaboration with Puma.
Drawing attention to the creative arts in Ghana, outside of just music, Audiomack has also made it a point to help the community which has blessed the world with its music and culture.
David Ponte, Audiomack Co-Founder & CMO says, “We are thrilled to partner up with Daily Paper, Puma, and the Accra Girls Senior High School for this amazing event! Our mission at Audiomack is not only to move music forward but to also empower the youth so that they can continue to innovate and express their creativity on and off the pitch!”
Jefferson Osei, Co-Founder of Daily Paper, explains, “We are glad to collaborate with Audiomack, who shares in our vision to accelerate growth in the African creative industry. Giving back to the continent that inspired us to create our label has always been a dream for us, and we will continue to intensify efforts towards achieving that vision.”
“All [of] our collaborations are purposeful collaborations for community growth and youth development, so it is exciting to see Audiomack coming on board for this year’s tournament,” Osei continues. “Youth culture is part of Daily Paper’s DNA. We started the brand as a lifestyle brand and invested in empowering youth culture. Within Daily Paper’s global community the brand has always organically built authentic relationships with the youth.”
Daily Paper partnered up with Audiomack based on the organic connection made for the love of West and South African music: Afro Alté, Afrobeats, African hip-hop, African-American Drill, and Amapiano. “This was the base of the relationship. From here on, both entities explored possibilities to invest in the Motherland,” Osei adds.
London-Based Designer Tisloh Danboyi Debuts His Jewellery Piece With ‘Love,bites.’ Silver Necklace
Featuring an intentional separation with use of a comma that makes love the subject of the pendant, London-based designer Tisloh Danboyi has premiered his first piece of jewellry in the form of a new silver pendant necklace titled ‘Love, bites.’ The metaphorical play on the conventional phrase is the centrepiece of the necklace.
“There is always some form of sacrifice (a bite) which follows love” says Tisloh on the necklace, which sees the ‘Love, bites.’ motif pendant sitsting on an 18-inch, diamond cut trace necklace set in 925. Sterling silver.
Complex UK reported that, the motif is carried forward from ‘Prima Pars’, Tisloh’s debut collection launched back in 2018 inspired by the first part of Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologica. After making an appearance on t-shirts and knitwear, the phrase and is now casted in metal to compliment Tisloh’s recent ‘Where the Land Meets the Water’ collection.
Speaking about the new piece, Tisloh said: “In English, the ‘love bite’, hickey or hickie describes a notable bruise caused by the kissing, sucking and biting the skin of the neck. However, in this piece, there is an intentional separation with use of a comma. This is used to make love the subject. In this way, love itself is biting – a metaphorical play on the conventional ‘love bite’. I am trying to portray the idea that there is always some form of sacrifice (the bite) that comes with the love of something or someone be that your selflessness in human and romantic relationships or giving up leisure time to focus on a project.”
