The New Nordstrom x Nike Collection Is Taking Streetwear to a Whole Other Level
Read: Looks like high fashion, feels like activewear.
In today's exciting collaboration news, Nordstrom x Nike have teamed up with stylist Dianne Garcia to create a nine-piece capsule collection that's all about making streetwear sexy. ICYDK, Garcia is the brains behind singer SZA's tomboy-chic style, the ultra-cozy aesthetic of upcoming R&B fave Ella Mai and, of course, Kendrick Lamar's highly recognizable laid-back look.
For the Nordstrom x Nike collab, she combines everything mentioned above to create a comfortable and functional line complemented by Nike's classic style.
"My goal for this was to design something for the everyday modern woman who wants something comfortable, functional, and easy to put together on the go without compromising style," Garcia told HypeBae of her inspiration. "A lot of the materials used in this collection are similar in texture so they're not competing. I think everything is also comfortable, which gives it an effortless feel, period. The shapes are dramatic, but once you put it on it's quite comfortable-a comfortable but stylish woman reads effortlessness." (Related: The 10 Best Instagram Accounts to Follow for Athleisure)
The collection itself features oversize jackets, biker shorts, bodysuits, hoodies, fanny packs, and more-all emblazoned with Nike's iconic white swoosh. Garcia herself poses in the collection's lookbook sporting the Air Force 1 Sage Hi, the ultimate winter shoe.
