Olivia Kim, Vice President, Creative Projects at Nordstrom, delivers fresh takes on five Nike, Inc. footwear canvases including the Nike Air Force 1, Air Mowabb, Air Footscape, Air Max 98 and Air Jordan IV, along with 16 apparel and accessory pieces for her latest Nike by Olivia Kim Collection.
The assembled pieces form a perfect confluence of classic Nike and Jordan designs and Olivia’s style — which is rooted in the rave and hip-hop styles defining ‘90s New York. The collection's name, "No Cover," is somewhat of a double entendre to a cover charge one would associate with New York nightlife. In Kim's eyes, this collection is meant for everyone - men and women, the young and the old - in order to promote no judgements and no rules.
Additionally, Kim’s selection of the silhouettes is predicated on her own latent desires: While she loves New York streetwear from the 90's, at a time when a majority of the fashion-forward styles and fresh colors were made for men and she could never find anything in her size.
Paired with the statement footwear designs that reimagine Nike icons of the era, the collection's apparel is reminiscent of Kim’s own free-spirited teenage wardrobe. The collection features vibrant pink, volt, blue, orange and red colors, with the fleece hoodies and graphic tees featuring mini swooshes in glitter pink.
Some of the pieces from the Nike by Olivia Kim apparel capsule include:
- Nike x Olivia Kim Classic Padded Sports Bra
- Nike x Olivia Kim Mock Neck Tennis Dress
- Nike x Olivia Kim Fleece Hoodie
- Nike x Olivia Kim Puffer Coat
- Nike x Olivia Kim Short Sleeve Striped Tee
- Nike x Olivia Kim Short Sleeve Swoosh Tee
- Nike x Olivia Kim Short Sleeve Air Max 98 Tee
- Nike x Olivia Kim Long Sleeve Peace Sign Tee
- Nike x Olivia Kim Beanie
- Nike x Olivia Kim Fanny Pack
"The collection, in a sense, very much matches the personalities of these people who inspire me," says Kim. "It’s amazing to have Megan Rapinoe, John Waters and Binx Walton as faces of the campaign."
The collection is available at Nordstrom x Nike boutiques, including the new Manhattan location at Nordstrom NYC, online at Nordstrom.com/xNike and on SNKRS on October 31, and will drop in additional North America stores and globally on November 8.
