Sports may be a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean team loyalty has to suffer. RSVP Gallery, known for being a “conceptual retail experience” in Chicago, IL, has taken extra steps to keep fans happy. RSVP Gallery, which offers everything from hoodies to skateboards to hand sanitizer, has partnered with Modelo Beer to honor Chicago sports history the best way they know how: custom gear.
Illinois native, and RSVP Founders, Don C and Virgil Abloh, has always been driven by “the intersection of art, music and fashion in Chicago since its inception in 2009.” Abloh who is among many things, involved with Louis Vuitton as the artistic director of men’s wear. While Don C’s focus on influential streetwear, and many years of artistic management for Kanye West, led to creating his own brand, Just Don.

Known as a capsule collection, the limited time release launched November 19th via a virtual roundtable at the RSVP Gallery in Chicago. The clip features some of Chicago’s top sports names including Ryan Arcidiacono from the Chicago Bulls, Eloy Jiménez from the Chicago White Sox, Alex Brown from the Chicago Bears, and Connor Murphy from the Chicago Blackhawks. Each of the four pieces in the capsule collection was inspired by one of the four teams representing Chicago’s nod to iconic all-American sports.
For Modelo, the partnership was simple. “As the number one beer in Chicago, Modelo has long stood for tenacity and grit, which aligns with the passion fans exhibit for their hometown teams.”
