wears new season
Passionate about human rights, a wizard on the football field and fiercely proud of his roots, who better to capture the new season’s spirit of optimism than Alpha Dia?

‘When I first arrived in New York it was -20 degrees. The only shoes I had were Vans. I won’t make that mistake again.’

‘I’m inspired by what Akon is doing at the moment, bringing [solar-powered] light to Africa. I’m passionate about fighting for human rights.’
