Will Smith is channeling his Fresh Prince past with a new collection, Bel-Air Athletics, inspired by the NBC sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
The 26-piece limited collection nods to Bel Air Academy, the fictional prep school that Smith attended with his cousin, Carlton Banks, and later Ashley, with burgundy and gold graphic Ts that read Bel-Air Athletics, and a tracksuit that has a paisley lining and can be worn inside-out, much like how Smith wore his uniform in the show. Additional graphic T-shirts include a cartoon version of Smith with the phrase “Will Power” and a retro tie-dye shirt with a past photo of Smith.
Accessories such as socks, caps, a navy and paisley basketball called the “Money Ball,” a gym bag, air freshener and a phone ring round out the collection that also has a cropped hoodie and gym shorts for women and apparel options for kids.
Bel-Air Athletics is the second collection Smith dropped through Westbrook Inc., a holding company that Smith formed with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and Miguel Melendez and Kosaku Yada. Westbrook also launched “Red Table Talk,” the original talk show with Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris on Facebook Watch.
The Fresh Prince famously wore his school blazer inside out — and now fans can do the same!
"See what I'm saying?" Smith asks as he reverses the track jacket and shows it off with paisleys on the outside.
The collection, which is available on Smith's online shop, also includes T-shirts, shorts, socks and a gym bag kit, all with a custom insignia boasting the letters "FP." Prices range from $6 for an air freshener to $200 for the gym bag kit. (The aforementioned jacket is $95.)
Naturally, every piece is perfect for chillin' out and maxin' and relaxin'. (Not to mention doing "The Carlton"!)
But keep in mind, the Bel-Air Athletics collection is available only through Oct. 14, with prices ranging from $6 to $200.
