Speaking about the collab, Jacquemus said: “I have always been inspired by vintage ACG pieces and Nike campaigns from the 90’s. Having this imagery in mind, we designed women’s athletic wear with sensuous details and neutral colours.”
“When we collaborate at Nike, it’s always a 50-50 union where each partner comes together to advance the other forward in ways that couldn’t have been done alone,” explained Jarrett Reynolds, Nike VP of Catalyst Apparel Design.
“With Jacquemus, we drew from vintage ACG inspiration, the interweaving of Nike DRI-Fit fabric, and considered footwear like the Humara, to create a nexus of sport and style that could only be done through the shared lens of Nike x Jacquemus.”
The collection is expected to include classic Jacquemus straps with Nike motif details, while Jacquemus himself has also promised a series of trainers in the collection including his own interpretation of the Humaram, which he described as his favourite Nike shoe.
The collection will be launching on 28 June for Summer 2022. Set those alarms!
