Nike and Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci Collaboration Announced!
Isabel Marant – there’s a new high fashion
sneaker game coming to town!
Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci dropped a very broad hint this morning via Instagram, which was quickly confirmed: he and Nike will be collaborating! Nike has a history of tapping ‘influencers’ to work with them (most notoriously, a certain K. West), although Tisci is the first they’ve called out from the ateliers of haute couture. That said, Tisci’s designs have long had a street-style vibe to them, and apparently, the designer has worn the same pair of Nike’s for 16 years,
according to Style.com. The collaboration (which will likely include both shoes and apparel) hits stores in spring 2014.
