Editor’s Notes: Following the first collaboration between Nike‘s Jordan Brand and French football giant Paris Saint-Germain in 2018, the Swoosh unveiled a second collection at Paris Fashion Week. Like the first, the collection consists of co-branded apparel and a range of footwear, including the long-rumored PSG x Nike Air Jordan 6. Check it out in detail below.
Alongside the Air Jordan 6, the second collection includes the recently-released Air Jordan 1 Low and versions of the new Jordan Mars 270 and Jordan React Havoc. The lifestyle apparel comprises a number of tops, sweaters, jackets, and bottoms, all of which feature bold branding and graphics inspired by the Air Jordan 6.
“There’s a phrase ‘Paname’ on some of the product. That’s what the Parisian youth refer to as ‘the city on the edges of the city.’ They told us that the energy and the youth culture is found at the edges of the city,” says Jordan Brand VP of design David Creech. “We asked them about their favorite Jordan and they said the 6. It was the graphic on the outsole, but also the “Infrared” — it’s a bit bolder and more declarative. That is what resonated with them.”
When the OG collaboration was announced in September 2018, PSG star Kylian Mbappé told Highsnobiety, “It’s an exceptional opportunity to present Jordan in Europe and the whole world.”
