Shot at the historic Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, Lexi and Jinx exemplify the new collection as two grads of HBCUs themselves. “’47 is a brand that perfectly epitomizes the crossover between sport, culture and lifestyle. Working with them to honor these historic black colleges and universities, especially shooting this campaign at my alma mater Morehouse College, has been an incredible
experience,” said Jinx.
