Madonna's Son David Banda Wears an Updated Version of Her Iconic '90s Adidas Dress
Madonna and her adopted son, David Banda, showed up in style to the WBA World Lightweight Championship at Barclays Center on Saturday, May 28. Embracing an on-theme silhouette for the occasion, Banda wore a sporty, low-cut red-and-white maxi dress with Adidas's signature stripes lining the bodice and sleeves. The design was first unveiled on the Gucci fall 2022 catwalk — a show that marked the debut of a buzzy collaboration between the two powerhouses during Milan Fashion Week. The dress also pays homage to a memorable red-and-white cotton Adidas dress his mother wore in 1993, when she posed with comedian Rosie O'Donnell at the premiere party of the film "Sleepless in Seattle."
Madonna's own garment featured a deeper plunging neckline and a high slit on the left (Banda's slit is positioned on the right). Fans were quick to point out the nostalgic fashion connection, which Gucci described in an Instagram post as a "past-meets-present moment": "The archival original was part of an official collaboration between the sportswear brand and Laura Whitcomb of Label NYC and re-envisioned by Alessandro Michele within his Exquisite Gucci collection."
Banda's outfit saluted his mother's iconic Adidas moment, which she finished with red suede Puma sneakers. Banda gave his look a contemporary spin with Balenciaga's speed-recycled knit sneakers in black and white, layers of gold necklaces and silver bracelets, a retro pair of yellow sunglasses with blue-tinted lenses, and a black shoulder bag with graphic letters.
Madonna, who also attended the game and documented the night out on her Instagram page, wore a black-and-white Adidas track jacket and pants, accessorizing with silver necklaces and pink sunglasses.
