Classic sportswear by Italian brand Kappa
A leading brand in sportswear and lifestyle apparel, Kappa excels in creating easy-to-wear, comfortable styles for your leisurewear and activewear wardrobes. Sports gear is practical with movement-enabling materials and features, while streetwear styles reflect the brand's northern Italian roots.
Update your off-duty looks with clothing for men and women
Find comfortable, practical tracksuits, cotton tees and warm hoodies in our extensive Kappa clothing selection. With colourful and neutral shades, soft cotton-blend fabrics and easy-to-style shapes, these are wardrobe staples you'll turn to again and again. For a statement look, wear the label's classic poppered tracksuit bottoms with low-top trainers and a plain black vest top. Jackets and zip-through tops are handy to grab as you leave the house.
The casualwear range includes branded separates to combine with your favourite downtime wardrobe pieces. Pair a stretchy, black, long-sleeved top feauturing the Omini logo down the arms with loose-fitting jeans for a cinema trip or day out and about. Add a brightly hued bum bag from the range to add a pop of colour.
Kit yourself out in activewear for sports and leisure activities
The brand is the official supplier for professional football teams, and its expertise in creating sportswear is seen throughout the range. T-shirts and shorts are crafted from breathable pure-cotton or sweat-wicking polyester to keep you feeling comfy during gym sessions. For cold-weather jogs in the park, choose a zip-up tracksuit which you can undo once you're halfway round.
The swimwear selection takes in bikinis, swimsuits and shorts that give you a sporty look at the local pool. Women's two- or one-pieces have the Omini logo on the front and added elastane for a streamlined feel in and out of the water. Gents, take a tomato-red pair of trunks and combine with a pair of white pool slides from the range.
The brand's "Omini" logo – a man and a woman sitting back to back – was launched in 1969. Kappa created the image to show its new polo shirt was unisex, and it stuck. Look out for this distinctive silhouette on everything, from socks to swimsuits.
Kappa's footwear selection prepares your feet for sports, shopping trips and lunches with friends. Trainers in leather or textile come in neutral shades including black, white and grey. Comfort is the priority here, with padded insoles and flexible outsoles helping to keep your feet feeling good. Mesh sections add breathability while reinforced heels and toe caps are hard-wearing. Hiking boots and walking sandals have extra-grippy soles for traction on uneven terrain.
It's almost unbelievable, but the label was in fact launched entirely by error. After a sock company sent out a faulty batch, they replaced it with a new range which they labelled K for Kontroll. Soon everybody wanted a pair of the K-labelled socks – and Kappa was born.
Cool Kappa clothes for children who love to move
Dress children and teens in miniature versions of the label's much-loved tees, hoodies and tracksuits. With soft cotton-blend fabrics, elasticated hems and adjustable closures, these garments are ideal for hour after hour of play and movement. Cheerful shades appear throughout the range, whether in colourblock sweatshirts or in the contrast soles of trainers.
The kids' footwear range takes in hiking styles, padded winter boots and handball trainers as well as classic low- and high-tops fit for everyday use. Cold-weather boots are waterproof and have warm padding to last through long snowball fights. Handy drawstring fastenings make these styles easy to take on and off – especially for smaller hands.
