Nike launches the capsule with Virgil Abloh

The designer drew on the brand’s tradition in athletics to create a female line made up of sportswear and the Nike zoom earth kiger 5 model in three different colors

 

Nike unveils the new women’s collection created with Virgil Abloh and called Athlete in progress, a tribute to the international running community. For this capsule, the American designer was inspired by the women’s clothing of the sportswear brand dedicated to athletics (both the one technical and that dedicated to post-race) and to the racing sneaker.

«I started the conversation with Nike on this women’s running project last summer and at the time I was inspired by everything related to the aesthetics of the athletics champions . For this reason, I invited some of the best Nike athletic athletes to parade in Paris for the 2019 Off-white spring-summer collection as a natural anticipation of the collection, “said Abloh.

The capsule, composed of sportswear and the Nike zoom earth model kiger 5 in three different colors, debuted in Paris last September during the show for 2019 Off-white with the athletes Dina Asher Smith, Vashti Cunningham, Cecilia Yeung, English Gardner, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Nafi Thaim, Catherine Ibarguen and Rénelle Lamote.In a limited edition, it will be available globally starting June 27th.
