Creed 2 fever hits Suzi Wong
After being involved in supplying boxing shorts and costumes for the first Creed film, we were delighted to be asked to be involved once again in the latest edition of the Rocky franchise. With the UK premiere set for tonight, there’s no better time than to give everyone an insight into our work for the film. Our sole concentration for Creed 2 has been centred round producing another dazzling piece for Michael B Jordan aka Donnie Johnson/Adonis Creed.
After defeat to our very own ‘Pretty’ Ricky Conlan (Tony Bellew) in the first instalment, he faces Viktor Drago, the son of his fathers’ old arch enemy, Ivan Drago. We stayed true to the roots of the story and the character Michael plays, with the new design a tribute to the late Apollo Creed and the simplistic American shorts worn when he faced the fearsome Drago in Rocky IV. The basis of the shorts are a red and white striped satin, both front and back. The side panelling is royal blue with 4 white stars either side, which continues to the bottom of each leg, this time with three stars per leg. The design is completed with a royal blue waistband, sporting the names ‘Creed’ and ‘Johnson’. Brought together, it is our modern take on a classic and increasingly popular style.
Once again, we have enjoyed working in conjunction with a Hollywood costume department and being given the opportunity to show off our work to a different audience.
A similar stars and stripe design is available to purchase from our boxing shorts section of online shop. The shorts can be fully customised with your own name, embellishments, logos and text to really make it stand out from the crowd. Creed 2 will be released in the UK this Friday (30th November).
