Photo Recap: J. Cole in Bespoke “Dreamville” Jersey Created by Renzo Cardoni
J. Cole rocked a red bespoke Renzo Cardoni jersey while headlining his own Dreamville Festival on Saturday in Raleigh, North Carolina. With the words “Dreamville” and “North Carolina 19” made in exotic white snakeskin across his front and back of the one of a kind, red basketball jersey, the singer took the main stage in the late evening before a sold-out crowd of more than 40,000. Custom ordered by J. Cole for this inaugural performance from Detroit based fashion designer Rami Mona of Renzo Cardoni (@renzo.cardoni) who was inspired by NASCAR racing in the garment’s creation, finishing the look with checkerboard side panels and black and white stripe trims.
A true son of Detroit, designer Rami Mona has brought the worlds of fashion and sports together under his label Renzo Cardoni, founded in 2013 when he was just 21 years old. Renzo is a personal nickname, Cardoni is a nod to Detroit’s Cardoni Street where his late friend lived. Renzo Cardoni is a brand that ties together all the most personal elements of Mona’s life – his childhood playing sports, his design talent, his name, and his roots.
Since establishing Renzo Cardoni, the brand has created countless memorable moments with today’s biggest names in sports, music, fashion, and Hollywood and released impressive collaborations with Nike, Jordan Brand, Vogue and Starter, and Mona has become the most sought after name in bespoke sports team jerseys and sportswear. He’s become the go-to for handmade, customized jerseys for top athletes, created in the most luxurious fabrications and embellishments available from python to exclusive Italian leathers. Each Renzo Cardoni piece takes ordinary licensed fan attire and spins them into one of one works of art.
