Nike has launched their collaboration with Liberty London, which fuses tradition and sport for a bold summer statement. The collection sees some of Nike’s most celebrated footwear and apparel styles transformed by an array of timeless Liberty London floral prints for a cool summer look that is rooted in sports culture
The footwear collection is a mix of heritage and modern Nike styles. The culture of running is celebrated via the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Nike Roshe Run, and for the first time, vintage running favorite the Nike Internationalist receives a Liberty treatment. Also included are the basketball classics Nike Blazer and the Dunk Sky Hi — a feminine take on the classic Dunk.
Each style has been wrapped in an assortment of three of Liberty London’s signature fabric designs: Anoosha, a 1930’s print featuring blossom and bell flowers; Lora, a print based on a 1970’s version of William Morris’s “Willow” pattern; and Crown, a design based on various paisley block prints from Liberty’s Merton print works from the late 19th to early 20th century.
The Nike X Liberty footwear and apparel collection launches exclusively in Liberty London on April 7, and at Nike retailers globally starting May 7.
