Olivier Rousteing x NikeLab Collection is Coming

Balmain’s creative director to follow in the footsteps of Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci

 

 

The images and videos of overeager shoppers running, falling and fighting each other as they tried to get their hands on Balmain and H&M‘s collaborative collection are still fresh in our minds. But Balmain‘s creative director Olivier Rousteing is already set to create another case of mass hysteria.

Rousteing recently announced on Instagram that he’s preparing for another collaboration. This time with NikeLab.

The American sportswear label is no stranger to collaborations. Previously, designer Riccardo Tisci has teamed up with NikeLab for two sneaker collections and an athleisure range. As for Rousteing’s upcoming collection, it seems like nothing has been confirmed yet. While waiting for more news, why not read our exclusive interview with Rousteing on his Balmain x H&M’s collection?

 

Update: Nike has since disclosed more information regarding the collection.

Dubbed “NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau,” it is inspired by the designer’s love for soccer. The clothes are “designed to meet off-pitch performance needs while pushing the sport’s aesthetic forward.”

The NikeLab Top x OR, for example, has an embroidered woven crest placed on the left side of the chest, which reminds us of a traditional soccer kit. The gold framing symbolizes the color of the champions.

The “golden touch” also appears on four new sneakers, namely Mercurial, Magista, Hypervenom and Tiempo.
