No, not Cappadonna the rapper from Wu-Tang Clan who went to prison and got replaced by Method Man’s fine ass. I’m talking about “Kappadonna,” and yes, I made that word up on the spot. Back in Junior High, urban fashion was the dominant style among the youth. You had Jay-Z taking flight with Rocawear, Russell Simmons with Phat Farm. I remember seein a group of kids wearing tracksuits with a stripe on the side of both arms and legs. The brand was called Kappa and it was founded in Italy in 1916 by accident. The logo showcases a man and a woman leaning against one another, which I couldn’t understand why for the longest time. Turns out the meaning behind the logo is showcase equality amongst men and women and that both genders were put on earth to support one another.  Bet you hypebeasts didn’t know that.  During my Jr. High days, soccer fanatics would rock Kappa tracksuits while juggling a soccer ball while others wore it as a fashion statement and well, to flex for that matter. 10 years later, the brand gained notoriety thanks to streetwear pages like Hypebeast, Highsnobiety and Hypebae which is cool but at the same time, it goes to show that trends that were hot back then, will eventually become revamped for the youth. Kappa shortly became reinvented in 1959 with the brand Kappa Kontroll with the purpose to add a more “street” vibe with garments such as hoodies, denim jackets, jumpers, and the newly designed shirt that I am wearing above. With streetwear constantly on the come up, hopefully Kappa can remain consistent. And to all you hypebeasts reading this, do ya research before you flex ya fit.
