One of the most anticipated shows each year during New Zealand Fashion Week is the Jockey show, with this year being the fifth year that All Blacks and All Blacks Sevens players have strutted their stuff down the runway in their Jockey underwear. The full lineup including All Blacks Damian McKenzie, Brad Weber and Angus Ta’avao, joined by All Blacks Sevens players Kurt Baker, Scott Curry and Black Ferns player Charmaine Smith. The sports stars, alongside Kiwi freestyle skier and TV presenter Anna Willcox, debuted the pieces that make up the Tokyo range.
The new range, aptly named Jockey Tokyo, was inspired by the bright, neon lights of the famous bustling city. So it was only fitting that the new collection provided much of the inspiration for the show which saw a traditional runway re-imagined into a downtown Tokyo street complete with neon lights and big screen TVs at every turn.
The Jockey Tokyo range is made up of five pairs of men’s trunks, plus two women’s crop tops and underwear sets and a robe. The six different prints draw inspiration from the iconic city with names such as ‘Kanagawa Waves’ and Shibori Shake’.
Jockey Tokyo will be available at Farmers and Rebel Sport in Newmarket.
