Brand: Fear of God x Nike

Season: Holiday 2020

Key Pieces: We're particularly into the vintage warm-up jacket pictured below. The piece draws inspiration from NBA warm-ups from the mid-1980s.

Release Date: November 19

Editor’s Notes: Fear of God and Nike have debuted their latest apparel collection ahead of next week's release. The collaboration finds Jerry Lorenzo and company reimagining basketball style.

“These garments provoke a subconscious desire,” said Lorenzo. “Each references an authentic piece of an athlete's wardrobe; these are functional items that have become iconic because of the effortless cool of the people who wore them in the ’80s and ’90s.”

With the collection, Lorenzo hopes to elevate the mesh practice short to the level of an American classic, à la five-pocket denim. Fear of God x Nike Holiday 2020 isn't just about basketball garments, however. More specifically, the collaboration harkens back to a time when style was defined not by the pieces themselves, but how they were worn.

“This is how we think players should come to the arena — we're really trying to take it back to more honest times,” Lorenzo added. “It was different then, it wasn't so much about the garments in the way that it is today. It was really about the guys. They could have been stepping on the backs of their shoes, because they just didn't feel like putting them on ...but it just looked so cool.”

At the core, the new Fear of God x Nike collection reimagines classic NBA warm-ups and practice attire, combining old- and new-school elements. The holiday capsule releases globally on November 19.
