The highly anticipated follow up to “Fresh Greens” is here. Goorin Bros. introduces its
second collection of hats, meticulously designed with NBA All-Star, Carmelo Anthony.
This Fall ‘18 collection features seven bold styles, each handmade in the U.S.A. using the
finest materials available.
Each hat in the collection comes in a bright red box with a metallic embossing of
Carmelo’s signature on the inside. The hats are blocked from a variety of materials
including wool and leather; each featuring a burgundy satin lining with Carmelo’s
signature and motto in copper leafing. These designs incorporate various finishes
including swirled dyes and camo effects. The red palette ranges from deep burgundy to a
soft rosé, keeping consistent with the wine theme and also pays homage to Carmelo’s
new venture as a Houston Rocket.
If you wish to track down one of these hats, do so with haste as the production run is
limited to just 50 units. The hats are available only through Goorin.com and in-store
exclusively at their West Village Hat Shop, beginning Wednesday, October 17th,
at 5pm EST.
Carmelo recently showcased a successful soft launch of this collection during New York
Fashion Week, with various celebrities and influencers in attendance, including fellow
Houston Rockets teammate, James Harden.
During this event, Carmelo provided his inspiration surrounding these hats and his
Melo Made projects for NYFW; “I’m a self-taught sommelier. I wanted to bring some of
that refinement into this hat collection, with a focus on hues of red and named after my
favorite wine grapes. Melo Made is one of my biggest fashion projects. There were a few
brands that were interested in creating capsule collections. I wanted to put it all together
and create this moment.”
Carmelo also collaborated with several other brands this Fall for his Melo Made
collection including Rag & Bone, Jordan, Rochambeau, and Famous Nobodies. With the
NBA season kicking off, this release marks a key milestone for Carmelo as he pursues
winning a championship with the heavily armed Houston Rockets.
