Riccardo Tisci and Nikelab Team Up Again for Athletic Apparel Collection
Nikelab x RT: Training Redefined.
Finding motivation to get up and go to the gym can be tough, but Riccardo Tisci and Nikelab have teamed up to solve your workout woes. Equal parts sporty and stylish, the Nikelab x RT: Training Refined activewear collection is their latest collaboration, following February’s release of the Dunk Luxe Hi, which will feature both men’s and women’s pieces.
“It was interesting…a little bit of a difficult process because to make something that is very dynamic, to do sport, and to do activity, and make it strongly recognizable — a fashion statement — is not easy,” Tisci says. “But we achieved something that’s amazing. There’s a lot of sensuality.”
In line with Nike’s Summer of Sport celebration and anticipation of the Rio 2016 Olympics, Nikelab x RT: Training Redefined will drop in two distinctive capsule collections: one sees striking black-and-white designs; the other, as modeled by track-and-field star Sanya Richards-Ross and decathlete Ashton Eaton, has kaleidoscope and floral prints inspired by Oregon, Tisci’s home of Taranto, Italy, and Rio de Janeiro.
The first collection will release in July 2016, and the second comes the following month.
