It’s not every day that high fashion and workout wear come together, but if there’s any duo that can pull off the partnership, it’s Riccardo Tisci and Nike. Vogue reports that after two successful stints designing sneakers for the brand, Tisci will now release performance wear with NikeLab.
The designer pairs the beauty of his Givenchy work with the practicality of sportswear, ultimately creating an elevated collection of men’s and women’s athletic clothing. “It was interesting … a little bit of a difficult process because to make something that is very dynamic, to do sport, and to do activity, and make it strongly recognizable—a fashion statement—is not easy,” Tisci said. “But we achieved something that’s amazing. There’s a lot of sensuality.”
Check out the first shot of the collection below, and keep scrolling to shop a few Nike pieces before the collection drops starting in July!
