The 196 was the year of the so-called Calzificio Torinese, which began to apply the famous "K-Kontroll" tag on his products just few years later to certify their high-quality - and here comes the Kappa name in 1967. The Kappa logo - also known as the "Omini logo" - has a special spot in sportswear history: the picture consists of two naked guys back to back during a photo shoot and is dated back to the '60s, when Kappa came up with Robe di Kappa,adding a lifestyle and casual apparel collection to its already sought-after underwear and socks manufacturing. This brand built a strong relationship with soccer athletes too, developing iconic jersey one season after another: oversize logos, vertical stripes and cutting-edge styles have made Kappa an authentic terrace legend. Anyway, printed side bands with repeated logos has been the distinctive feature of each Kappa collection since day one, making a good impression both on jackets and nylon track pants. Kappa tracksuits reflect the sporty approach of this glorious Italian company, that keeps a strong aesthetic identity in every single item, ranging from plain Kappa T-shirts to all the 222 Banda gears - a series of minimal garments with a loud side branding. The fashion business has recently brought back the classy background of Kappa Kontroll and the casual soul of Kappa Authentic revealing many consistent collaborations, proving once again the central role of this sport-heritage brand within the streetwear history. Loose fits and side stripes still remain the major aspect of taped logo pants, Kappa sweatshirts and of the remaining coveted pieces.
