Ariel and Shimon Ovadia of Ovadia & Sons teamed up with the Bob Marley Family to create a capsule collection inspired by the multi-faced and talented Bob Marley. Marley was a style and music icon, soccer player, and most importantly a true pioneer in using his voice to spread messages of love, equality, and justice. The collaboration launched on February 22, 2019.
The Ovadias produced this collaboration to share their respect and appreciation for Marley, a one-man revolution who never failed to speak with conviction and truth. The lyrics from his song Zion Train, “don’t gain the world and lose your soul; wisdom is better than silver or gold,” specifically resonate with the Ovadias, words that still hold true meaning today. The collaboration includes bring yellow and green colors and successfully captures Marley’s dynamic talents ranging from music to soccer, by using images of Marley.
