In an Instagram post, Vanessa Bryant said: 

I am so proud of the limited-edition MAMBACITA x DANNIJO tie-dye sweat set capsule collection, which celebrates Gigi’s spirit in every little detail – even the placement of #PlayGigisWay on the right arm of each hoodie– her shooting arm. 

All items part of the collaboration on the Dannijo website are currently sold out. 100% of the proceeds from the sale will go to the foundation.

The Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation is a nonprofit organization “dedicated to creating positive impact for underserved athletes and young women in sports.” It was founded in honor of Kobe and Gianna Bryant, who were killed along with seven others in a helicopter crash in 2020.
