Sporting Kansas City defender, menswear designer Aurelien Collin opens AC78 store in KC | SIDELINE

Aurelien Collin is a two-time MLS Best XI defender, a two-time MLS All-Star and winner of last year's MLS Cup MVP award.

Now, after opening up his first lifestyle clothing store, Collin can add entrepreneur to a list of expertise.

Collin launched his very own AC78 line of menswear in 2013 as part of the MLS All-Star Game festivities in Kansas City. After a successful year of getting the brand's name and clothing onto the streets of KC and the world, the Paris native, along with business partner Tom Paolini, opened his Country Club Plaza store on Friday of last week.

Since opening its doors, the AC78 store has seen no shortage of current and former Sporting KC players making their way through its doors to show support for a friend.

The AC78 store is located at 4725 Wyandotte St., Kansas City, MO.
