Nike becomes the first brand to collaborate alongside Olivier Rousteing as a designer outside of Balmain, and today the first images of the collection have been unveiled.
After the first partnership within NikeLab’s Summer of Sports series – the NikeLab x RT collection – NikeLab and Rousteing unwrap these first images of the release, which they have titled the “NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau” collection.
Decked out in Rousteing’s characteristic black and gold, the collaboration features among others the NikeLab N98 Jacket x OR with styles for men and women, a NikeLab reinvention of the N98 Football Jacket with gold framing, and an embroidered woven crest placed over the heart, the NikeLab Top x OR and four pairs of sneakers. The lifestyle sneakers are a spread of four distinct football silhouettes: the Footscape Magista, the Free Mercurial Flyknit, the Roshe Tiempo VI, and the Free Hypervenom 2.
Below you can find some side-by-side comparisons of Rousteing’s creations versus their on-the-pitch counterparts.
The NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau collection drops on June 2nd in NikeLab retailers and its online store.
Nike has also reworked the Magista in these new colorways.
