Ricardo Tisci for Nike
Ricardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy, collaborates this Spring with Nike. The Nike + R. T. Air Force 1 is the name of the collection. A unisex sneaker for all types of persons and styles. The sneaker comes in white with popping orange, yellow, blue and black details, with a brown logo. These colors are in line with the FW14 collection of Givenchy which he just showed in Paris. Sneakers are available as of March. Hunter Niels needs a new pair of white sneakers, perfect timing.
“The shoe is universal yet somehow very personal,” says Tisci. “I travel all over the world, and I see people wearing the Air Force 1, and they wear it in so many different ways. And so I was thinking, what is the essence of the Air Force 1? And how do I take that essence and make my own statement?” Tisci continues, “The Air Force 1 is not about gender, it’s not about a particular city, nor is it about a certain style. The community decides. It’s democratic. It’s love.”
