Don C Appointed as Creative Director for Mitchell & Ness

Don C is in the headlines once again as one of Chicago’s iconic cultural tastemakers has etched himself in streetwear & fashion history.

Don C has been named as Mitchell & Ness’ Creative Director for Premium Products. The appointment is also Don C’s latest industry milestone as he was named the Creative Strategy and Design Advisor for the Chicago Bulls over a year ago.

The newly acquired position has been years in the making, dating back to 2011 with the release of the luxury Just Don Caps. Since the relationship’s inception over a decade ago, the two have collaborated on product lines like “NBA Jam,” “No Name,” and other premium apparel and headwear collections. 

Working with Mitchell & Ness is a dream come true.

I grew up on throwbacks and sportswear, so it’s an honor to be able to impact something that affected me so much through my creative journey and love of sports.

I’m looking forward to storytelling and creating more timeless products alongside the Mitchell & Ness team.

The appointment of Don C comes on the heels of significant growth and expansion for Mitchell & Ness as it was acquired by Fanatics last year.

With Don C at the helm in a new way for M&N, we can anticipate elevated storytelling and materials — the Just Don way.

One of the project’s first launches includes the MLB “Cooperstown Collection” in April surrounding MLB’s season opener which will include Just Don premium shorts celebrating the MLB’s most recent expansion teams: Colorado Rockies, Florida Marlins, Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Rays.

Additionally, Don C will be an integral part of rolling out the new collection of NBA shorts and headwear designed to celebrate some of basketball’s earliest and greatest foreign NBA players including the likes of Drazen Petrovich, Tony Parker, and Toni Kukoc. 

Don is truly an icon and visionary, and after having worked with him for many years we’re ecstatic to have him formally join the Mitchell & Ness family.

Fans of the brand can look forward to exciting new products across all leagues that will fuse the brand’s heritage with Don C’s cutting-edge creative vision.
