NikeLab and Olivier Rousteing team up for a “Football Nouveau” collaboration.
Balmain’s very own Olivier Rousteing is NikeLab’s newest collaborator. Creative directors like Ricardo Tisci (Givenchy) preceded him with very successful collections.
NikeLab is known for its innovate take on Nike’s classic designs. This time the Lab team created “Football Nouveau”, a new futuristic look for their iconic football silhouettes. With a little help from Balmain’s creative director they managed to merge the sporty Nike image with Balmain’s high-end lifestyle status.
The collection includes the N98 Football Jacket, sweatpants, shorts, and T’s. All in Rousteing’s signature black and gold look. Besides clothing the collection also includes four sneakers: The Free Mercurial Flyknit, Roshe Tiempo VI, Free Hypervenom 2 and the Footscape Magista.
The Football Nouveau collection will drop on June 2 at select NikeLab retailers and online.
For those who can’t wait, you can pre-order the collection here.
