Madonna and her adopted son, David Banda, show off the WBA World Lightweight Championship style at the Barclays Center on Saturday, May 26th. Embracing an on-theme silhouette for the occasion, Banda is wearing a sporty low-cut red-and-white maxi dress with Adidas signature stripes on the body and sleeve lining. Interestingly, the design was unveiled at the first Gucci Fall 2022 Catwalk, a show that marked the beginning of a close collaboration between the two powerhouses during Milan Fashion Week. And it also pays homage to a memorable red-and-white Adidas dress that her mother wore in 1993, when she posed with comedian Rosie O’Donnell at the premiere party for “Sleepless in Seattle.”
Madonna wore her own dress with a deep-seated neckline and a high slit on the left (the band slit is on the right), but fans were eager to point out the nostalgic fashion connection, which Gucci described as a “past-meeting-present moment”. In an Instagram post: “The archival original was part of an official collaboration between sportswear brand and label NYC’s Laura Whitcomb, and Alessandro Michelle re-imagined it in her great Gucci collection.”
The band’s dress saluted her mother’s iconic moment at Adidas, which she finished with red suede puma sneakers. Meanwhile, Banda has given his own look a contemporary spin with the Balenciaga Speed Recycle Knit Sneakers black and white, gold necklace and silver bracelet layers, a retro pair of yellow sunglasses with blue lenses and a black shoulder bag with graphic characters.
Madonna, who took part in the game and recorded the night on her Instagram page, wore a black-and-white Adidas track jacket and pants, accessorized with layers of silver necklaces and pink sunglasses.
