ModaLisboa WORKSTATION: Fora de Jogo – UNI-FORM FDJ x TINTEX SS22 CAPSULE
Menswear designer Fora de Jogounveiled his new collection ModaLisboa AND NOW WHAT?! Continuing on the elementary study of identity, UNI-FORM is driven from Fora de Jogo’s (FDJ) own codes translating them into a new dimension in which the original essence and definition of uniform are rethought and rewritten. Focusing on the concepts of community, union and what means to belong to a certain group, with this capsule collection FDJ dives into an idea of what its uniform could potentially be.
Reflecting on personal freedom, rebellion against the established system and the sense of self, FDJ continues on the pursuit of eradicating concepts such as toxic masculinity and fragile masculinity that are deeply rooted within our society and culture and directly linked to the world of football.
