The brands have come together for the release of a headwear capsule, dubbed the “Retirement Series”. It consists of the brand’s 9FIFTY and 9TWENTY styles in purple, yellow or black colorways. Each sports special embroidered designs paying homage to Kobe’s days as number 8 and 24, while sporting luxury details like ostrich on the visor and an 18K gold pin.

Just eight pieces of the luxe cap will be on sale at the Staples Center for $5,824.08 USD, while the remainder of the collection will sell for $24 to $36 USD when it drops on Dec. 18 at
