CONTEXTUAL COLLABORATION (2018)
In 2016, refugees were invited to compete in the Olympics for the first time, as part of the Refugee Olympic Team in Rio. Though this team will not be invited to compete again in the 2018 games, LISNUP reimagined this concept and answered the question, what would it look like if refugees were invited to compete in the 2018 World Cup?
The “AWAY.” jersey is a statement – a reflection of the indisputable reality that refugees face, being far from what they know as home, with the number 21 representing the estimated 21 million refugees around the world.
Using inspiration from the official refugee flag designed in 2016, and classic World Cup kits of the past, the 2018 “Away from Home” capsule collection donated 50% of its profit to Makers Unite, a nonprofit organization in The Netherlands that connects newcomers and local makers to real opportunities.
