Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci has exclusively revealed to Style.com that he has collaborated with Nike. The partnership, which will feature the logo NIKE RT. will arrive in stores and on Nike.com this Spring.
“For me, Nike represents a lot: my childhood, America,” Tisci said. “In Europe, America is the flag, McDonald’s, Marlboro, and Nike, for a kid it’s very important.” The respect goes both ways. “We were impressed by his vision,” Ian Ginoza, Nike’s Global Footwear Director, said. “I personally wear some of the t-shirts; that’s something that Riccardo does well, blurring the lines with street fashion.”
