The Subtle Sides of New York City Revealed in the NikeCourt Fall Collection

Fall 2019 NikeCourt New York City collection 0

The NikeCourt Slam Tennis Jacket and Pant is inspired by the tear-away design of classic basketball warm-up attire. Sloane Stephens [above] is seen wearing a modified Air Jordan VIII, a silhouette released during her birth year, with a midsole and outsole derived from the NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero.

An area of breathability on the chest of the NikeCourt Advantage Men's Tennis Polo, seen above on Frances Tiafoe, creates a brick pattern inspired by the streets of New York City.

Oil-slicked streets at night, a lone graffiti strip on a wall, the pronounced embroidery on a basketball jacket decal — these quiet details give the fall 2019 NikeCourt collection an introspective flavor.

The intent is to communicate the essence of New York City through subtle signals. “There’s so much going on around Flushing Meadows, but even though that playing atmosphere is well-known, we knew we could expand our notions of what the city can mean to the people who live there, and to the players,” says Abby Swancutt, Global Design Director of NikeCourt.

A black jacket and pant inspired by vintage basketball warm-ups highlight the collection, which is filled out by the distressed art patterning of the faux V-neck polos in gradient violets and neon greens.

Athlete on-court looks continue the tonal theme. Serena Williams, wearing a custom NikeCourt bodysuit, will tie up a Flare Knit Low with an iridescent heel drawn from the city's oil-slicked streets. Printed on the heel are Williams' career wins at Flushing Meadows. 

The NikeCourt fall 2019 collection releases August 19 on nike.com and at select retailers.

The Nike SB x NBA Collection draws from basketball’s enduring influence on skateboarding. Highlighting classic silhouettes, the collection unites two cultures with distinct crossovers in style and function — a fact skaters themselves know well.

“Growing up in Southern California in the '80s was what got me into basketball,” says Nike SB skateboarder Eric Koston. “I was getting deep into skateboarding in high school, but having the Showtime Lakers as my home team was so exciting to watch. They were at the peak of their championship wins, they had their rivalry with the Celtics – it was compelling, competitive, flashy basketball.”

The collection’s two pieces of apparel — the Nike SB x NBA Satin Bomber and the Nike SB x NBA Hoodie — are adorned with an oversized Association logo, an iconic symbol of style, individuality and fandom. 

Classic basketball silhouettes compose the footwear assortment, including the Nike Bruin, Blazer and Dunk. In the shoes’ earliest forms, key features like padded ankle collars and flat soles were a natural fit for skateboarders who needed protection and tight boardfeel while riding.

“As a skateboarder, I’ve always looked at those early basketball shoes from an aesthetic standpoint — because the style was always cool — but also from a technological standpoint, because of the similarities in our need for impact and support,” says Koston. 

The Nike SB x NBA Collection releases October 13 on nike.com and at select retailers. The pink Nike SB x NBA Bruin and pink Nike SB x NBA Hoodie release December 1 on nike.com and at select retailers.

The Nike City Ready Collection Motion Adapt Bra supports an athlete’s needs with an avant-garde silhouette, inspired by the curves of the female form. 

The Nike City Ready tights are designed to accentuate and flatter the female body with a curved waistband and exaggerated curved seamlines; they’re also made from a high-performing material that wicks while sculpting and flattering.

Inspired by a vintage ski jacket, the Nike City Ready Collection Crop Jacket is both lightweight and water repellant.

With Nike City Ready, the debut launch from Nike Women's Collections, Maria Vu, Senior Creative Director Nike Women's, and an all-female design team deliver a balance of forward-thinking innovation and directional silhouettes.

"The Nike City Ready Motion Adapt Bra is a great example of our promise," explains Vu. "Our challenge was how to take our incredible motion adapt technology, and make it beautiful and really push it through a transformative aesthetic lens without compromising the performance." 

This same lens is applied to a full 9-piece collection of apparel and footwear, including bras, crews, pants and, of course, shoes.
