K-way and Kappa to dress the Alpine F1 team for the next three years

After a name change last year, Alpine, the Renault group’s motorsports subsidiary, recruits a new supplier this year. Its drivers and teams will don Kappa apparel in the Formula 1 World Championship’s paddocks and wear K-Way garments while out in the city.

Both brands belong to the Italian group BasicNet, which has formulated a tailor-made solution for the team while simultaneously introducing its brands into the globally attractive world of motor sports.

"This is the first time we sign a sponsorship agreement that reaches an international level," explained Rémi Garnier, sales and marketing director of the Italian brand in France. “In France we already have a network of 250 distributors, Intersport and Sport 2000, multisport stores and specialists in this industry. This is as an opportunity for us to position the brand higher. We are present in soccer, rugby, skiing and now in motorsports with Alpine F1, as well as in endurance and e-sports competitions."

The Italian-based Kappa studio has designed two lines. One is to be worn by the teams which includes T-shirts (€55), polo shirts, sweatshirts and soft-shell jackets (€140) in blue and in black featuring a tricolored stripe on the shoulder. The line is complemented by accessories and two different shoe models. The second is an accessible offer for fans including round-necked T-shirts in blue, white, and red (€35). The brand also slipped in a blue jersey resembling a soccer jersey (€75) into the collection. 

"We aim to gradually bring our expertise as a lifestyle brand to the world of Formula 1 and to enduro (off-road motorcycle sport, editor’s note) and e-sports, which we also equip. The four capsule collections per year will allow us to offer many different options. The permanent collection has around 30 pieces and with the additional capsule designs, we will be able to offer about 60 products throughout the year,” explained Garnier. At the same time, the group could seize opportunities in the motorcycle racing industry in line with its arrival in motorsports.

Outside the paddocks, the Alpine teams will have another wardrobe. BasicNet has entrusted K-way with the athletes and team members’ outfits for events in the city. For the first Grand Prix of the season in Bahrain on March 20, the Alpine team led by drivers Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon will be able to choose from a dozen pieces ideal for travel, including windbreakers, bombers, T-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts, as well as a suitcase in the team’s colors. The lineup is completed by a selection of caps and hats designed by New Era.

The BasicNet group, owned by the Boglione family and headed by Federico Torino, announced a turnover of €949 million for its various production and distribution licenses, including nearly €710 million for its marketing licenses. Its consolidated turnover is close to €297 million, with an EBIT of €31.6 million. Details of its results will be released on March 3.
