LeBron James x John Elliott Apparel Goes Coastal

Nike LeBron James x John Elliott Apparel Collection 1
Nike LeBron James x John Elliott Apparel Collection 4
Nike LeBron James x John Elliott Apparel Collection 2

Debuted in August 2018, the Nike LeBron James x John Elliott Icon Collection is a tripartite study in head-to-toe versatility. Highlighted by the Icon QS, a fresh lifestyle approach to basketball footwear, the full assemblage of apparel also considers basketball basics with a new perspective. The second drop, including hoodie and longsleeve T-shirt, pushes it all a little farther by introducing subtle colorways that are more evocative of nature than of the gym.

The earthy tones are informed by the landscape of Elliott's youth. "I'm always trying to tell authentic stories that relate to my experiences," he says. "For this season, I knew I wanted to show the ICON QS on the runway during New York Fashion Week for what was our 8th show. The story for our current season is rooted in the idea of a 'dream home,' which for my mom and our family was a coastal ranch house in Northern California."

The latest ICON collection hues are birthed from this place, where the sea meets open land. Blanketed by fog, it is a starkly rugged, gorgeous space. The color scheme relays time spent in this climate, allowing for textures created through single colors, and morphing depending on how the item is worn. 

"It's really exciting, because you put a technical shoe through an earthy lens and complete the look with the apparel too," says Elliott. "When I approach anything with Nike my goal is to create something that is timeless. The shoe, as a project, wasn't easy. It required a lot of trial and error, but it has helped us find a way to form something that brings basketball culture more fluidly into our overall style choices." 

The Nike LeBron James x John Elliott hoodie and longsleeve release October 9 from John Elliott, nike.com and select retailers.

A Pro Club Throwback for ’70s Hardwood Nostalgia

Nike Pro Club White Space Sweater  0
Nike Pro Club White Space Sweater  2
Nike Pro Club White Space Sweater  1

Based off of Phil Knight’s creation of the Nike Pro Club on March 21, 1975, as a way to venture the newly-formed company beyond the track and onto the basketball court, Nike Sportswear presents the Pro Club sweater.

The Nike Pro Club “team” was fashioned from 10 original members as a way to aid the company in its continued development and improvement of basketball product. Participation in the club meant that professional players were given exclusive apparel.

The sweater evokes the company’s early connection to the sport of basketball by paying homage to the Pro Club throughout. Complete with a chain-stitched “Phil” for the company’s co-founder, the sweater is inspired by product worn by the original club members. The numbers “7” and “5” are featured on either sleeve to commemorate the year in which the Pro Club was founded. The design on the back of the sweater pays tribute to one of the original players in the club, complete with a Swoosh knit into the shoes.

The garment is housed in a custom, collectable retail box that highlights the Nike Pro Club story and includes a Nike cloud Swoosh pin.  

The sweater drops November 26 to Nike Members on nike.com.

Jordan Brand x Russell Westbrook x Opening Ceremony 17

Russell Westbrook and Jordan Brand are collaborating with Opening Ceremony to release the latter's first athlete-design project.

“I’ve always loved fashion and the creative process when it comes to designing. When the opportunity came for me and Jordan Brand to collaborate with another brand, Opening Ceremony was a perfect match,” says Westbrook. “I liked the idea of doing something with bold color patterns and adventurous silhouettes, and I’m excited to see this collection come to life.”

The apparel pieces — including an overcoat, a pant-trouser hybrid, a color-blocked track jacket and more — modify classic Air Jordan looks with new proportions and details based on the point guard's irreverent personal style.

"When Russ and I sat down together to design, it started a creative dialogue and synergy of true collaboration," says Opening Ceremony co-founder and creative director Humberto Leon. "The resulting collection shows how, together, we reworked our favorite Air Jordan essentials into new garments. We're looking forward to seeing how the public puts their own spin on these pieces by incorporating them into their daily wardrobes."

The Opening Ceremony x Jordan Brand x Russell Westbrook collection is available November 11 at openingceremony.com and Opening Ceremony stores in New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. The collection will also be available in North America on Nikelab.com and at Nike Lab 21 Mercer and Chicago doors December 5.

Cody Hudson's Latest Running Collection Depicts Motion on Bold Print

Wisconsin-bred, Chicago-based graphic designer Cody Hudson brings power, humor and memorable narrative to simple shapes in his second installation as part of Nike Running’s A.I.R. (artist in residence) program.

This collection is an updated take on ’60s counter-culture through bold colors, graphics and text. With thoughtful color and arrangement, Hudson employs a pattern of loose circles to convey constant motion and togetherness. 

"The hand-painted dot pattern that is used through the line was meant to convey a feeling of movement and motion, but in a less-than-perfect way," Hudson says. "To me, the dots feel like individuals all coming together to form something bigger when you see it as a larger pattern."

The Cody Hudson Artist Collection is available October 3 in North America on nike.com and select Nike stores.

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.

Fall 2019 NikeCourt New York City collection 1

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.

Nike ACG apparel is designed to provide convenient solutions for an unpredictable outdoor landscape. One example: the almighty pocket, a feature that the fall 2019 collection refines through styles like the ACG Overalls.

"We think about pockets a lot in ACG — everything is considered," says Nur Abbas, Design Director for Nike ACG. "How big should they be? How easy are they to access? Do you want to see the contents?"

Another pillar of the ACG line is the use of bold prints, which undergo a twist within the seasonal line through designs inspired by rock formations and former ACG midsole foams.

Rounding out the collection is a matte-black colorway of the ACG React Terra Gobe, sitting atop a black rubber toe and toothy outsole for durable traction.

The first drop of the fall 2019 ACG apparel collection releases August 9.

Signature jock tags adorn the majority of pieces in the collection.

Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson is the latest participant in Nike Running's A.I.R. (artist in residence) program. Extending Nike's longstanding connection to graphic arts, this program pairs a creative talent with a range of contemporary silhouettes (both apparel and footwear) in the spirit of creating playful and energetic product capsules. 

When cultivating the design for this collection, Hudson wanted it to feel naturally artistic yet polished and purposeful. His conceptual design is brought to life through bold colors, simple graphics and clean text, creating a modern ensemble for the modern runner.

The products are an expression of Hudson’s artistry in which he emphasizes organic shapes and colors. “The loose circle pattern to me is about constant motion and movement, but in a less than perfect way,” he says. “The bold and graphic shapes are meant to be abstract and open-ended enough where the viewer can start to bring their own meaning to them."
    
The Cody Hudson Artist Apparel Collection is available July 18 in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Greater China, and September 5 in North America.

Before Nike was Nike, it was Blue Ribbon Sports, founded in 1964 on a handshake between Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight.

In 1967, BRS opened its first retail door in Los Angeles. The one-of-a-kind space quickly became a hub for runners, then "oddball athletes," who met, sought advice and swapped stories — and eventually inspired the next generation of running.

Recently, Nike re-opened its original door again a community space for local runners to gather, talk and run — just as they did in the late '60s.

The Nike BRS Pack honors this heritage with a modern take on Blue Ribbon Sports's original logo and a red, white and blue color palette. Each piece in the apparel capsule collection (a hat, jacket, T-shirt, tank, pant and short) is intended to outfit the fictional Blue Ribbon Sports Track Club that is open to all runners.  

The Nike BRS Pack will be available beginning May 9 on nike.com.

Nike ACG apparel encourages getting out and having fun. "We want you to go hiking. We want you to go camping," says designer Rebecca Aleman.

Of course, there's more to it. Like its complementary footwear, ACG apparel balances technical solves for all conditions with an energetic spirit. In other words: The gear is deliberate about protecting wearers from the elements while simultaneously being more fun than serious in aesthetic.

"Handmade prints and patterns can lend a sensory experience to a garment," says Aleman. "We bring in elements of Nike heritage through color and graphics and mix an analog feeling with contemporary cuts and fabrications to make ACG apparel what it is today." For example, though the men’s short has a slight drop-crotch and the women’s is cut shorter, the same pattern carries across both. 

Designing with this in mind continuously results in collections that celebrating outdoor life in a youthful and vibrant way (without veering into silver-haired holiday makers on safari territory. It’s a fine line.).

Fun and humor is what Los Angeles-based artist Nathan Bell says he wanted to bring to his first capsule with Nike Running. 

A run, for him, mirrors the creative process. “You experience all these constant insecurities and failures,” he says. “Love it at one point, and you could also hate it and want to throw it in the trash the next minute.”

His art takes runners through that mental rollercoaster with quirky doodles (a love-me-love-me-not flower and stop sign, for example) and phrases (such as cold air warm lungs and I can’t feel my legs) that appear on performance apparel and footwear. The graphic designs celebrate the brilliant highs and lightheartedly acknowledge the challenging lows of running — providing doses of motivation, commiseration and a little LOL when needed.

Three Reasons to Cheer the Latest ACG Collection  1

A playful throwback print from the Nike ACG archives balances retro vibes with ultra-soft insulation in the Men’s ACG Jacket.

In 1989, Nike launched ACG (All Conditions Gear) as a vehicle for outdoor solutions. Thirty years later, the gear is still built to take on sun, rain and everything in between. Here are three ways the latest drop is celebrating ACG's legacy in aesthetic and technical innovation.

1. Retro prints are back. Created by Nike's Art Department, which was founded in 1983, the prints used for the '89 debut of ACG and then through the '90s manipulated petroglyph art, rock formations, plants and more. Viscerally memorable and etched in Nike lore, these patterns cemented the brand's status as an apparel design juggernaut. (Learn more about Nike's history in prints here.)           

2. Women's styles are being introduced. Base layers and pants, fitted specifically for ease of movement, ensure that the wholly trinity of apparel — function, fit and feel — is achieved.

3. A three-step layer system returns. Moisture wicking Dri-FIT wool base layers, fleece insulation and GORE-TEX® fabrics combine to provide protection against most conditions one might face on the street or trail.

The Spring 2019 Nike ACG apparel collection releases January 24 on nike.com and at select retailers in Asia and North America, and on February 21 in Europe.

The spring NikeCourt collection brings '90s-inspired color blocking and a wave of NikeCourt heritage embroidery to Melbourne. Some of the references are instantly clear from within the DNA of Nike Tennis. The sublimated denim and checkered print, for example, were both rocked by two famously irreverent stars, while the bright colors and crinkled nylon are reminiscent of Nike’s watersport line from the '90s.

But another detail from the collection is felt by touch alone: materials that serve up a vintage texture, but are made for the physical dynamism of today’s game.

This comes direct from player insight. Speaking with athletes during preparation of the Melbourne collection, the NikeCourt design team found something important: Cotton T-shirts are a favorite for practice attire – far from a material of the future.

“A lot of our players are used to practicing in cotton tees,” says Abby Swancutt, global apparel design director for NikeCourt. “They like the way it absorbs the sweat, how it protects them from the sun and how they feel more comfortable."

The goal of NikeCourt designers was to combine performance benefits with the heftier vintage textures that players loved. While the sweater-knit past of tennis was once its ceiling for performance, Nike’s innovation of materials means that textures of all feels can amplify competitive play, not cancel it out. Like Swancutt says, “Our material development has come so far that we’re able to get these materials that feel cotton-rich, but still wick away the sweat during gameplay.”
