Jerry Lorenzo looks to the 1987 NBA finals as inspiration for his latest Fear of God capsule collection, fittingly dubbed "1987." That series saw the LA Lakers beat the Boston Celtics four games to two, and the signature green of Larry Bird's squad finds its way onto nine individual pieces, many of which are inscribed with contradictory "I Love LA" branding. The athletic silhouettes take the form of a track suit, pullover jacket, batting practice jersey, everyday hoodie, basketball shorts, graphic tees and made in Italy socks.

The Fear of God 1987 collection is scheduled to launch April 22nd through a special pop-up space at Back Door Bottega in Bologna, Italy.
