New Era teams up with legendary filmmaker Spike Lee for a special collection for its Heritage series, dubbed “The 1996 Collection.”
The release celebrates Lee’s request in 1996, in which he asked New Era CEO Chris Koch for a scarlet Yankees cap. He obliged and he worn the unique cap during a World Series game.
Now that cap returns, along with three others, as a tribute to the historic event.
“The Heritage Collection is a homage to the greatest professional sports team: the New York Yankees,” says Lee. “When you wear the hat, you’re bragging and you’re proud of it too.”
All four caps in the collection releases July 17 at select European retailers (such as Overkill, Selfridges, colette, size?, Corso Como and Caliroots,), alongside New Era flagship stores in London, Birmingham, Paris, Berlin and Frankfurt.
