Jacquemus x Nike Drops This June
Jacquemus’s June 2022 runway will be a whole new game. After almost three years in the making, the luxurious brand will be dropping its first collaboration with the giant sportswear brand Nike.
Simon Porte Jacquemus has been a fan of Nike since the ’90s and has always imagined a world where outdoor pursuits and court sports comingle within a new, integrated aesthetic. Combining the rich heritage and expertise of Nike and the designer’s love of the outdoors and his body-conscious aesthetic both brands have joined forces to create some of the most technically advanced activewear in the world
“For this collaboration with Nike, I wanted to create a collection that reinterprets athletic women’s sportswear in a minimal way. I have always been inspired by vintage ACG pieces and Nike campaigns from the ’90s. Having this imagery in mind, we designed women’s athletic wear with sensuous details and neutral colors, along with my own interpretation of the Humara, my favorite Nike shoe. It was important for the collection to be accessible for all bodies, and to be a natural blend of Jacquemus style and Nike performance,” says Simon Porte Jacquemus.
Adding a French touch to Nike’s aesthetic was important to advance the brand forward and take its styles to a whole new level.
“We always seek to work with collaborators that offer up something we don’t have as a brand,” says Jarrett Reynolds, Nike’s vice president of Catalyst Apparel Design, which fosters the brand’s more innovative partnerships. “Simon’s superpower is the sensuality of his design and his emotion…he can take the mundane and make it really special.“
The collection that will begin releasing later in summer aims to invite sports style into everyday life.
Featuring 15 unisex pieces of footwear, apparel, and accessories the collection launches June 28 exclusively on jacquemus.com, and across Nike retail globally beginning summer 2022.
We can’t wait.
