Duvin Design & Miami HEAT Join Forces to Unveil 1980s Inspired Capsule Collection

In March 2024, Duvin Design, a brand celebrated for its laid-back lifestyle apparel, and Court Culture, the Miami HEAT’s fashion label, is set to launch a limited-edition collection that’s a vibrant throwback to the ’80s Miami vibe. This unique partnership marries Duvin’s flair for nostalgic designs with the iconic style of the Miami HEAT, creating a collection that’s as much about celebrating the past as it is about wearing it.

A Nostalgic Journey Back to ’88

Picture the electric atmosphere of Miami in the late ’80s – a place of vibrant colors, dynamic sports culture, and the unmistakable vibe of spring break. This collection is an homage to that era, inspired by the HEAT’s eye-catching colorways and the spirited lifestyle of Miami’s locals and visitors. It’s like taking a trip back to 1988, but with clothes that fit the modern wardrobe.

The collaboration features 14 pieces, each with a story to tell and a design that speaks volumes about the era it draws inspiration from. The color palette is a sunset blend of pinks and oranges, accented by teal – a nod to Miami’s picturesque palm trees and ocean views. And the prints? They’re all about Miami life, from parrots and windsurfers to the iconic cigarette boats.

Austin Duvall, Co-Founder of Duvin Design, shared, “Merging our vintage Florida lifestyle brand with the Miami HEAT’s rich history felt like destiny. We dove deep into the archives to bring HEAT fans something special, a collection that’s not just wearable but tells the story of an era.”

From Beach to Bar: A Style for Every Occasion

The collection’s versatility is one of its strongest suits. With garment-washed tees, swim trunks, and Tencel button-ups, it’s designed for those who value comfort without compromising on style. Whether you’re hitting the beach or heading out for drinks, there’s something in this collection for every part of your day – or night.

Manuel Fabian, the Miami HEAT’s Creative Director, expressed his excitement, “We’ve admired Duvin’s work for years, so this collaboration was a dream come true. These pieces capture the essence of Miami’s golden years in a way that resonates with our fans and fashion enthusiasts alike.”

Available Exclusively in Miami

Starting March 22, 2024, fans and fashion-forward individuals alike can get their hands on this exclusive collection. Priced between $40 and $74, the pieces are accessible without sacrificing quality or design. For those looking to own a piece of this nostalgic capsule, head to the Miami HEAT stores located at various prime locations including the Kaseya Center and Miami International Airport, among others.

It’s a celebration of two brands coming together to share their love for Miami’s culture, sports, and fashion. By blending the old with the new, they’ve created a collection that honors the legacy of the Miami HEAT and the timeless appeal of Miami’s lifestyle.

As we await the official launch, it’s clear that this collection will not only appeal to fans of the Miami HEAT and enthusiasts of retro fashion but also to anyone who appreciates the art of blending sports culture with lifestyle apparel.
