Channelling The Racing Spirit

Channelling The Racing Spirit

Since 1961 when it captured its first motorcycle world championship, Honda has been heavily involved in the motorsport world. The 1980s saw the most glory for the Japanese manufacturer though, with more than 70 F1 races won and six World Constructors’ Championships nabbed. To celebrate the rich motorsport history of Honda, the company has created Honda Vintage Culture – a lifestyle brand that shares the same dedication to incredible design and workmanship.

The latest 1983 F1 Collection from the brand takes inspiration from the colourful Honda team uniforms of the 1983 Formula 1 season, the year when Honda returned to the championship as an engine supplier after 15 years away from the sport. The collection consists of just three apparel items – a henley tee, a polo, and a hoodie. All the tops feature a red, white, and blue palette with period-correct artwork married to modern materials, cuts, and fabrics. The F1 racing team logo used from 1983 t0 1988 can be found on the front, while the Honda logo and the Vintage Culture 1983 logo adorn the left and right sleeves respectively.
