Nike Is Going Luxury with a High-End Collaboration
The athletic brand is pairing up with Louis Vuitton's style director for an ultra-chic line
Lace up your sneakers now because you're going to want to race to the launch of the new NikeLab collaboration with Louis Vuitton designer Kim Jones.
The ultra-chic collection is inspired by the everyday athlete on the go, and the pieces will fit as well into your carry on as they will in your gym bag. Chic example: The lightweight, water-resistant Windrunner jacket and matching Windrunner top can be tucked away in their impossibly small pouch and quickly unfolded for a rainy-day run.
And of course, Nike could never forget the basics. Your favorite kicks are getting a runway-worthy upgrade with a pair of Air Zoom LWP x Kim Jones sneakers, which are fit for the road, the gym, the studio, or you know, just walking around town. (With this new line and Beyonce's new summer collection for Ivy Park, consider that next paycheck put into an athleisure fund.)
The hybrid collection combining Nike's signature innovation and comfort with couture style will be available online and at NikeLab stores starting July 23.
