Driven by fan demand, Marvel collaborates with African brand MIZIZI on an exclusive Black Panther inspired Baseball Jersey
The release of Black Panther has become a cultural phenomenom and fans of all ages are demanding fashion – forward, unique products to celebrate their love for the film; the Marvel x MIZIZI baseball jersey was created because fans and customers demanded it.
Crafted from high-quality, long-lasting materials, the unisex baseball jersey is adorned with the necklace of Bodil around the collar and embroidered with “WAKANDA” across the chest.
On the collection, Ghanaian-American founder and visionary Paakow Essandoh said “”The Wakanda Baseball Jersey was originally inspired and birthed by our followers on Twitter. Around the time the Black Panther Trailer had dropped, a few of followers were talking about how they wanted to wear MIZIZI to the release and some even mentioned we should design an official Wakanda Baseball Jersey. After juggling the idea around a bit, I started doing some research and saw how remarkable the opportunity for synergy was. Our mission has always been to authentically connect members of the diaspora so they can represent their roots and passions through fashion. Although some may not know where their roots originated, they can feel a sense of pride or belonging in the fantasy world of Wakanda. Through Black Panther, many people are finding their roots, and we want to immortalize that connection.”
The jersey will be restocked on June 19 on www.mizizishop.com in adult size XS – 5XL starting at $79.99
