If you were asking yourself whatever had happened to Riccardo Tisci, here is an answer. The Itallian designer, and Givenchy’s ex Creative Director, is going back to one of his passions: sport. Tisci collabirates onec again with NikeLab to create a collection, named “Victorious Minotaurs” that celebrates the appeal of classic basketball apparel. Basket and classics merge to create a new style, elegant with strong street cred. The piece de resistance is a new take of the Air Force One sneaker, that in Riccardo’s own words is “clean and pure, but at the same time elaborate”. The capsule consists of 4 pieces for men, 3 for women and a series of unisex accessories.
“I live for sports,” says Tisci. “There’s always been sportswear in my style, and I believe the mix of sport, street and elegance is really good.”
The NikeLab x RT Victorious Minotaurs collection launches launches October 12 in North America, October 20 in Paris and October 21 globally at NikeLab stores and nike.com/nikelab.
