Yesterday, Olivier Rousteing took to Instagram to confirm rumours about his upcoming collaboration with NikeLab, the sports brand’s high-end project that has previously tapped designers such as Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, Kim Jones and Undercover’s Jun Takahashi to create exclusive collections.
Olivier Rousteing poses in a collection preview shoot for Dazed.
Judging from the photos that Rousteing posted earlier today, the newest NikeLab collection, coined Nike x OR, will display the signature dark glamour aesthetic of the Balmain creative director. Featuring a black-and-gold colour palette, the collection feels luxe while retaining the functional, sporty designs that Nike is known for – and we’re betting #BalmainArmy regulars like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner will be rocking these pieces soon.
Check out highlights from the collection below. NikeLab x OR will be available for purchase starting 2 June at nike.com/nikelab.
