COLLECTION DEBUTS WITH EVERLAST x GIAN GALANG GLOVE CAPSULE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 14th, 2018
New York, NY – March 14th, 2018 – Everlast Worldwide, the world’s leading manufacturer, marketer and licensor of boxing, MMA and fitness equipment, is proud to launch the Everlast Capsule Collection, an exclusive product line of limited edition gloves, debuting with the Everlast x Gian Galang Capsule.
The Capsule Collection is comprised of uniquely designed gloves, available in limited quantities and released periodically throughout the year. From athletes to artists, each collaboration celebrates the reverence and passion we share with some of the most distinguished names in fight sports.
The Everlast x Gian Galang Capsule consists of 150 pairs of 10 oz. Everlast fight gloves printed with an original design by Brooklyn based artist, illustrator, and fight sports enthusiast Gian Galang. Known for his unique artistic style and expressive athlete portraitures, Galang based the gloves’ design on his painting entitled “Super Punch Out” – an original fighting illustration inspired by the classic 1980’s video game.
“I want my work to express deeper action that you can’t get from a photograph by taking iconic moments to another level,” says Galang. “I worked back and forth with Everlast to make the composition of my Super Punch Out painting work on the glove whether stand alone or in motion.”
A print of Galang’s original painting is featured on a signature Everlast patch and stitched onto the cuff of every glove. Each pair is hand numbered 1 through 150, signifying which set has been received.
“We’re excited to launch the capsule collection with Gian Galang,” says Chris Zoller, Everlast’s Director of Marketing and Product Development. “Our goal is to work with innovative visionaries that share the same passion for fight sports. We love that people can use the gloves or display them, all while paying homage to our fight sports community.”
The Everlast x Gian Galang Glove Capsule will be available for purchase on March 26th, exclusively on www.everlast.com. Stay ready for the next drop by following Everlast on social media @Everlast on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.
