Just in time before Christmas, Villa and Starter continue the VILLA x Starter “Legacy” Series by re-issuing the North Carolina Starter Jacket. The exclusive design draws its inspiration from the rich history of excellence in the University of North Carolina’s men’s basketball program.
“There are many debates about which school has the greatest basketball program of all time. However, there is one undisputed champion when it comes to the greatest colorway to ever don a basketball court. From James Worthy to MJ to Rasheed Wallace to Vince Carter, we all remember the first time we saw early greatness soar to new heights in Carolina Blue.” says Patrick Walsh of VILLA. “VILLA is excited to partner with Starter to bring this remarkable product story to the world in time for the holiday.”
North Carolina has consistently produced some of the NBA’s most elite talent including Michael Jordan, Vince Carter and Rasheed Wallace. VILLA’s design features the iconic Carolina Blue as a base color and includes the two original UNC logos patched onto the arms. VILLA aimed to create a timeless design that matches the university’s tradition of basketball greatness.
The “Carolina X-Mas” VILLA x Starter Collection launches December 15th. The jacket will retail for $100 and will only be available exclusively at select VILLA locations nationwide and online at Villa.com
