Angel City FC has partnered with star forward Christen Press’ brand re–inc on a new apparel line, set to be released Friday.
Press founded the lifestyle clothing brand in 2019 with teammates Tobin Heath, Megan Rapinoe and Meghan Klingenberg, and now she’s bringing the brand to her NWSL club.
The collection, titled the “New Everyone Club,” will include “gender-free” T-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts and socks, Angel City FC announced Thursday. The clothes are meant to celebrate and embrace underrepresented groups, the club said in its news release.
“I’m so proud to bring the ‘New Everyone Club’ to life with both my team and my business,” Press said. “This is about creating a new and inclusive way forward, bucking the old norms, and disrupting the status quo. Angel City and re—inc have such beautiful and diverse communities, and with the ‘New Everyone Club,’ we celebrate what’s at our very core: reimagination.”
Of the proceeds from the collection, 10 percent will be donated to the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles. The partnership also includes Klarna, an online payment-processing company which will match whatever amount is donated. The Downtown Women’s Center works to serve and empower women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.
“Angel City and re—inc are both mission driven brands that were fundamentally built to create a positive social impact,” Angel City co-founder and president Julie Uhrman said. “Working alongside Christen and the re—inc team is something we have been discussing for a long time, and we are excited that it has come to fruition.”
