Nike x Riccardo Tisci Reveal NBA Collab

After leaving his coveted role as Givenchy’s creative director earlier this year, Riccardo Tisci returns to his continuing collaboration with Nike. Following the monochromatic Summer Olympics-inspired line released in July, the pair came together again to design an entirely new collection in partnership with the NBA.  A basketball fan himself, Tisci decided to create his own team name– the “Victorious Minotaurs”– which is printed on various pieces in the collection to establish a cohesive team-theme throughout.  The Italian designer’s signature star symbol can be spotted with the signature colors of the NBA logo, merging the worlds of high-fashion and sportswear together.  

The NikeLab x Riccardo Tisci collection is available in North America and online on October 12.
