BEL-AIR ATHLETICS

UNVEILS NEW LIMITED-EDITION COLLECTION – “BEL-AIR MIAMI”
New Collection Inspired by Founder Will Smith’s Personal & Professional Connections to Miami

Bel-Air Athletics announced the launch of its newest, limited-edition collection – “Bel-Air Miami (Home/Away).” The 24-piece collection is inspired by Bel-Air Athletics founder Will Smith’s longtime affinity for Miami, and is available exclusively at www.belairathletics.com.
 
“Miami just agrees with me spiritually, vibrationally and emotionally,” said Smith, who has starred in several Miami-themed films and recorded music about the city. “I just believe places have that for certain people and it’s an X-factor.”
 
The unisex collection features an array of colorful looks, punctuated by tropical hues, animal prints and a color palette that draws from 1980’s and 90’s Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes uniforms. Standout pieces include the ‘Bengal Varsity Jacket,’ which is limited to just 50 pieces; the ‘Alma Mater’ sweatshirt and sweatpants set; the ‘Split-Time Hoodie’ which comes in three color-blocked versions created by cutting apart three sweatshirts and reassembling them; the ‘VK Miami’ tees, which pay homage to Virginia Key Beach as an important Miami landmark to the civil rights movement; the ‘Bel-Air Bengal’ tee, which introduces Bel-Air Athletics’ new mascot for the first time; and the colorful, tiger-striped ‘Bengal Socks.’ 
 
The “Home/Away” concept represents the intersection of one’s comfort zone (home) and the excitement/risk associated with new adventures (away). The theme embodies Smith’s personal and professional journey, which started in Philadelphia, moved to Los Angeles, and gained international acclaim in part because of Miami.
 
“From music to movies, Miami has always been Will’s second home and we wanted to showcase that special connection with this collection,” said Samyr Laine, the Brand General Manager for Bel-Air Athletics. “It was important for us to capture Miami’s distinct look and feel while merging it with our brand’s signature style.”
 
Smith’s link to Miami began in 1995, when he starred in the renowned film “Bad Boys” as a Miami-based narcotics detective. The success of the film resulted in two more Miami-based sequels – Bad Boys II (2003) and Bad Boys for Life (2020). Additionally, Smith released his smash single “Miami” off his multiplatinum album, Big Willie Style (1997).
 
Please find collection photos, campaign video, and high-res product images here. Additionally, Miami Heat star and NBA All-Star Bam Adebayo was named one of the ambassadors for the “Bel-Air Miami (Home/Away) and pictures of him in the collection are available here.

CITY GIRLS × BILLBOARD

City Girls have done things few female hip-hop duos or groups have managed, and as their momentum continues to rise Billboard magazine chose to recognize them as the face of what’s to break in 2020 as they continue their trail-blazing winning streak and reach new heights.

The duo, comprised of JT and Yung Miami, has become one of the most successful female hip-hop duos in the history of the Billboard charts. Racking up more than 1.3 BILLION streams, a pair of certified-Platinum Top 40 hits, becoming the #6 most played artist on urban radio (with singles “Twerk” and “Act Up” reaching #1 at Urban Radio), and raves from critics world-wide. City Girls will continue to dominate in 2020. They recently released “You Tried It” off their highly anticipated album which is coming soon.  

Ratchet, brilliant, and sometimes both at the same time and sometimes neither at all, these women are showing up and doing the work, wrote The New Yorker. The ascent of the City Girls is one of the most unlikely success stories of the past years, with JT sitting in federal prison in Tallahassee, Fl, turning herself in for fraud in July 2018, the same day Drake’s massive #1 smash “In My Feelings featuring the City Girls was released. Yung Miami held down the group: touring, performing festivals, the BET Awards mainstage and MTV Spring Break, Alexander Wang’s fashion week party, doing interviews and accepting awards as City Girls – and always with a shout-out to her best friend with a heartfelt “Free JT!”

These City Girls would not be derailed nor defeated. With the brash, raw, uncensored swagger rooted in the queens who came before them, the duo released music and videos they had banked knowing JT was turning herself in and kept rising and rising up the charts. The accolades and nominations piled up: 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards Nominations for “Best Hip Hop Video” + Single Of The Year”; 2019 BET Awards Nominations for “Best Group” + “Best New Artist”; BET Social Awards Nomination and Won “Issa Wave” Award; Nominated for Billboard Awards’ Best New Artist.

In September Yung Miami happily announced her pregnancy, showing the world what a working woman was capable of. In October, JT was freed, and the internet exploded, with City Girls holding eight of the top 25 trending topics on twitter – not just trending but trending under eight different topics! (#2 JT FREE; #6 JT HOME; #11 JT IS FREE; #15 JT IS HOME; #16 Caresha; #19 Yung Miami; #20 JT OUT; #23 SO JT). Never ones to rest, City Girls returned that same day with the hard-hitting “JT First Day Out;” The City Girls’ rapper takes aim at her opposition and makes sure they know City Girls are here to dominate hip-hop with the legal mess finally behind her. “Left prison with a pimple, not a scratch,” she raps. 

JT and Yung Miami are uncensored and unapologetic sharing a commitment to their hood roots and a bold insistence that the culture they come from shouldn’t stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie. One of the most provocative female hip-hop duos in years, JT and Yung Miami are trailblazers of the next generation of female who speak out as raw and confident — and with as much swagger as the boys and working twice as hard to be recognized.

Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “P” Thomas of the renowned Quality Control Music label discovered the girls and took their first song “Fu*k Dat N****” from a regional hit to a national smash when it appeared on the seminal Quality Control Presents: Control The Streets Vol 1 compilation.
