Vanessa Bryant honoring daughter Gigi with Mambacita clothing line
Vanessa Bryant is celebrating her daughter Gigi's birthday in a special way this year. Fifteen months after Gigi died in a tragic helicopter crash along with her father, Kobe, Vanessa announced the launch of a clothing line that's actually named after Gigi: Mambacita. And it's launching on May 1, Gigi's birthday.
Vanessa Bryant and her oldest daughter, Natalia, modeled the clothes on Instagram, and the sweatshirts have Mambacita, Gigi's nickname, emblazoned on the front. The number 2, Gigi's jersey number, is enclosed in a heart on the front of the sweatpants.
The clothes will be available in not just adult unisex sizes, but kids sizes as well. Bryant wrote on Instagram that 100 percent of the proceeds will be going toward the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, which supports Kobe and Gigi's legacy through charitable endeavors in sports.
Vanessa continuing to honor Kobe and Gigi
Bryant has continued to find new ways to honor the legacies of her late husband and daughter since their deaths in January 2020. She dressed her youngest daughters, Bianka and Capri, in No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys in mid April.
She also got a Mambacita tattoo in late March, and even appears to be wearing prototypes for the Mambacita clothing line in the videos.
