Riccardo Tisci has unveiled his latest work for NikeLab. The collection, which draws from the past, combines iconic pieces of sportswear to form a collection of four pieces for men, three for women and a series of accessories.
“I live for sports," said Riccardo. "There's always been sportswear in my style, and I believe the mix of sport, street and elegance is really good.”
The collection particularly draws upon the unbeatable style of basketball players, both on and off the court, with items emblazoned with the logo of fictional team, the Victorious Minotaurs. “In the 90s, basketball players became kind of like rock stars,” he said. “But now, they are more than rock stars. They’re superhuman — representative of historic mythology.”
The NikeLab x RT Victorious Minotaurs collection launches on 12 October in North America, 20 October in Paris and 21 October globally at NikeLab stores and nike.com/nikelab
