Sixteen-year-old David Banda is paying homage and channeling his mother Madonna’s impeccable fashion style as he wears a recreation of her famous 90’s Adidas dress for a night out.
The red and white-stripped dress is a collaboration between Adidas and Gucci which will hit stores on June 7. And of course, the look was a serious fashion statement as mom and son enjoyed fight night at the WBA World Lightweight Championship in New York City.
Gucci calls the look a “past-meets-present moment.” The Italian fashion house proudly posted on Instagram about Banda’s look, explaining the collaboration even further.
“Attending the WBA World Lightweight Championship in New York, David Banda wore an adidas x Gucci dress in a past-meets-present moment – his mother, Madonna, was captured in 1993 wearing the dress it was inspired by. 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.”
As you can see, the Material Girl sported the same look back in 1993 to the premiere of Sleepless in Seattle with actress and friend, Rosie O’Donnell.
The singer told British Vogue in an interview back in 2019 that her son is “…the one I have the most in common with. I feel like he gets me; he has more of my DNA than any of my children so far.”
David is one of six of Madonna’s children. The music icon shares the 16-year-old and his older older brother Rocco Ritchie with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie. Banda was adopted by the couple at 13-months-old from Malawi.
Madonna is also mother to 25-year-old Lourdes Leon, 16-year-old Mercy James and 9-year-old twins Stella and Estere who are also from Malawi.
