Riccardo Tisci's New Nike Collection Dresses Fictional Basketball Team

Taking inspiration from Greek mythology, Tisci created the Victorious Minotaurs, a mythical basketball team that explores the dichotomy of good versus evil. In the spirit of the game, the NikeLab x Tisci Collection is a nod to the camaraderie of sport, which mirrors the union between Nike's longstanding history in sportswear and Tisci's fashion-forward vision of sport. Branded team apparel is incorporated into the lineup as a representation of this concept. The idea behind the collection was creating comfortable-but-bold pieces that pull from on and off-court basketball style. At the forefront, more Tisci-designed Air Force 1s, a continuation of his execution that debuted last fall. Look for the collection to begin rolling out in North America on Friday, Feb. 16th.
