Vanessa Bryant is continuing to honor the memory of her late daughter, Gianna.
On Friday, Kobe Bryant’s widow announced that she will launch a Mambacita clothing line on May 1, which would have been Gianna’s 15th birthday.
Bryant, 38, and daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 21 months, modeled the collection’s tie-dye sweatsuits on Instagram; along with Gianna’s nickname (a play on Kobe’s moniker), the pieces are adorned with her jersey number inside of a heart, along with a small winged star.
The collection will be available in unisex and children’s sizes, according to Bryant, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, the nonprofit founded in Kobe and Gianna’s memory to help fund sports programs in underserved communities.
Kobe and Gianna were among nine tragically killed in a California helicopter crash in January 2020. Kobe was 41 years old, while his daughter was just 13.
Tons of celebrities immediately showed their love for the Mambacita line, including Snoop Dogg, Mario Lopez, Gigi Hadid, La La Anthony, Naomi Osaka, Khloé Kardashian and more.
The new launch comes on the heels of the announcement that Bryant severed ties with Nike amid frustration over the limited quantities of Kobe sneakers available to purchase, especially in children’s sizes.
