AIR JORDAN I “CALIFIA” BY ALEALI MAY
Heat Check 14. April, 2021
Aleali May, stylist, model, and L.A. native, is set to debut her fourth collaboration with Jordan Brand. One of the chosen few to repeatedly team up with the Jumpman, May has thematized various personal stories, L.A. style, the intersection of basketball and skateboarding culture as well as high-fashion in her previous collaborative efforts.
For her fourth joint collection, dubbed “Califia”, Aleali May and Jordan Brand focus on women’s empowerment, referencing Califia, the Black queen who potentially influenced the naming of Aleali’s home state of California. The line, that for the first time also includes apparel pieces, combines the school colors of Hillcrest (blue) and Inglewood (green), whose drill and cheer teams had significant influence during May’s formative years.
