After Riccardo Tisci took to social media to tease a collaborative project with Nike, the sportswear brand has officially announced they’ll be joining forces with the designer again.
Following the wider convergence between sport and fashion, Tisci combines sport and high-fashion, using basketball as the foundation of the collection. The lineup includes a range of basketball-inspired products including track pants and varsity jacket, completing a set of four items for men and three for women. Accessories join the fold as well to round out its apparel.
Tisci also presents his interpretation of a significant basketball treasure, the Nike Air Force 1. Boasting a red, white and blue colour way, the design pays homage to the NBA logo. The creativity doesn’t end there, as a selection of graphics throughout the upper highlight the designer’s fictional team, Victorious Minotaurs.
The NikeLab x RT Victorious Minotaurs range will drop on October 12 in North America and October 20 in Paris. This will be followed by a global launch at NikeLab stores and online on October 20.
