The concept is simple take, call on 23 influencers from various walks of life, sit them down at a dinner table and open up a dialogue about the beautiful game. First there was Vegas, then Paris and just this past Monday, we hit Chicago for MLS All Star.
In conjunction with Mitchell & Ness, Jason Markk and Heineken, we hosted a dinner graced by the likes of Heath Pearce, Chicago Fire players, representatives, from Nike, Real Madrid, adidas, Instagram as well as several local Chicago influencers from the worlds of music and art. The conversation jumped from the explosion of soccer kits as fashion, to the influence of social media and the blending of cultures all within the beautiful game. Life-long soccer fans/influencers chopped it up with casual fans/newcomers, which created a uniquely fun and intimate dialogue about our beloved game. Check out our photo recap of the space and experience below. Also make sure to keep it locked for a video recap.
With MLS All Star festivities in full swing, we stop to take a detailed look at the kit which will be worn by America’s best when they face off with the back to back European Champions, Real Madrid. The strip harkens back to 94 when the USMNT dawned a similar design during the World Cup in the United States. With navy blue dominating the kit, clean white accents come by way of a classic v-neck collar, sleeves, branding and a star print with a few maple leafs as nod to the Canadian teams in our league. A bold MLS badge along with a special Chicago themed crest fittingly round off and pay homage to the host city of the All Star game.
The adidas 2017 MLS All Star Kit is available now at mlsstore.com
