Homme+Femme Partners with Churchill Downs for Kentucky Derby Collaboration

Homme+Femme announces collaboration with Churchill Downs for Kentucky Derby collection launching Friday May 5th, 2022. This collaborative capsule elevates the rich and historic traditions of the Kentucky Derby through the unique, modern lens of streetwear fashion. Designer Drew Evans pulls from the legacy of Black horsemen and the Kentucky Derby as a main source of inspiration recognizing that 15 of the first 28 winning jockeys of the Derby were Black.

The collection includes letterman jackets, workout blazers reminiscent of varsity sweaters, t-shirts, and trucker hats offering an inclusive entry point into the world of elite horse racing. The designs uses imagery of roses, horses, horseshoes, and trophies incorporated into Homme+Femme’s signature streetwear pieces. This collection celebrates the prestige of the Kentucky Derby while calling back to the Black legacy of the Run for the Roses™.


“Kentucky meets Compton with a collab for one of sports’ most iconic events” says Homme+Femme Founder, Drew Evans.

Homme+Femme Designer, Drew Evans, and Kentucky Native, Valerie Bruce, formed an unlikely duo when teaming up for the collection. Valerie shared her love and knowledge of the Kentucky Derby with Compton-raised Evans to inspire him to pursue a collaboration with Churchill Downs. Valerie’s diverse knowledge of the sport pairs with Evans’ vision to create a collection rooted in celebrating the tradition of the Kentucky Derby, the sport of horse racing, and the Black legacy at Churchill Downs.

“Being able to highlight the Black legacy of the Kentucky Derby through this capsule is special to me and my brand. I am very thankful to be the one with the opportunity to do that,” says Homme+Femme Founder, Drew Evans.
