As part of its Summer of Sport celebration, NikeLab partners with respected designer and creative director Riccardo Tisci to disrupt the traditional notion of training footwear and apparel.
Featuring bold new silhouettes and graphics, the NikeLab x RT: Training Redefined Collection marries Tisci’s creative vision with Nike’s innovative materials and sport knowledge.
Inspired by athletes training for the summer’s ultimate competition, the collection employs Nike performance technologies such as Dri-FIT and Flyknit. In addition, the modern silhouettes provide new performance solutions.
NikeLab x RT: Training Redefined will release in two unique capsule collections with strikingly different aesthetics. The first features a signature Tisci black and white color palette. The second is highlighted by a unique juxtaposition of floral and kaleidoscope prints. The floral print includes flowers from Oregon, the home of Nike; Taranto, Italy, the home of Tisci; and Rio de Janeiro, the home of the summer’s biggest sporting event.
The NikeLab x Riccardo Tisci Training Redefined Collection will launch during July 2016 at select Nike Sportswear retailers. A second launch will then take place the following month.
