Riccardo Tisci Teases His NikeLab Training Redefined Collection

Just before its summer release.

After learning that Riccardo Tisci and NikeLab would be teaming up again, we’re presented with another look at the upcoming collection. Previous collaborations were footwear-focused, the designer lending his high-fashion aesthetic to the classic Air Force 1 and Dunk silhouettes, but this capsule sees a full range of athletic apparel for men and women.

Above, Tisci and Olympic gold medalist Sonya Richards-Ross preview the training-ready line, which is part of Nike’s Summer of Sport celebration and in anticipation of the Rio 2016 Olympics, full of heavy graphics influenced by his own edgy motif of skulls and stars, along with floral prints inspired by his Taranto, Italy hometown and Brazil.

Working with Nike’s patented Dri-FIT fabric was a challenging departure from the silks, knits and lace Tisci employs at Givenchy. “In the beginning I was, like, Oh, my God. Designing something that is superdynamic, light and easy to wear is sometimes difficult for a fashion mind,” he says. “Usually I dream the shape and then I do the fabrics. [This time] I learned about the fabrics, the technology, the weight, the movement, and then I started working on my design.”

Releasing in two drops this summer, Training Redefined will retail from $40 to $225 USD in NikeLab stores and on Nike.com.
