Needing to get back into the gym, but uninspired with your workout options? Now you have no excuses. Givenchy creative director and style savant, Riccardo Ticsi has just announced he will be collaborating with sportswear icon Nike, for a collection entitled Nike RT.
The partnership while unexpected, is not an unnatural one. Tisci has referenced street wear culture many times in his work, and always have gained instant cult-status, thanks to friends and clients like Kanye West. Speaking on his latest endeavour, Tisci elaborates further on how the partnership came to be. “When I got the call, it sounded so strong, so perfect for my DNA. It’s a big honour for me, especially because they’re always working with sports people”.
Tisci offered a first glimpse of the collection in a short film, wearing a swoosh and star laden sweater bearing his initials, giving fans a taste of what will be on offer. Little is known about the scope of the collection, or what it will include, but the collaboration is due to hit stores and online on www.nike.com this autumn.
