NikeLab is adding another revered fashion designer to its list of collaborators — Kim Jones, the style director of the men’s division of one of Earth’s most vaunted labels, Louis Vuitton.
Like previous team-ups with renowned designers — Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy and Olivier Rousteing of Balmain spring immediately to mind — the Kim Jones x Nike collection is officially a team-up between the Swoosh and the designer, meaning Louis Vuitton will have no formal involvement. Of course, Jones’s sartorial sensibilities are undeniably intertwined with LV’s, informing everything the brand does, meaning much of that same élan will be on display in the Swoosh-clad series.
Details are still scarce, but Vogue did offer an early look at the Kim Jones x Nike collection back in March, pictured below. Other than that, stay tuned; the line is set for a July launch, meaning an unveiling could come any day.
