Vanessa Bryant is launching a new clothing line named "Mambacita" to celebrate her late daughter Gianna's 15th birthday.

About a week after announcing that Kobe Bryant's estate has ended its 18-year partnership with Nike, the former model and widow of the late NBA star introduced a new clothing line that will celebrate the legacy of her daughter.

The line, which is available in kids and unisex sizes, consists of tie dye hoodies and joggers—both are available in two colorways. It was modeled by Bryant and her daughters Natalia, 18, Capri, 4, and Bianka, 21 months.
