Sportswear brand NIKE and pop superstar BILLIE EILISH team up for NIKE x BILLIE capsule collection that features new Nike Air Force 1 plus apparel pieces. For the collection Eilish reinterpreted Nike Air Force 1 with recycled materials, and in a universal color palette. The apparel collection, that was inspired by the singer’s signature oversized style, features hoodie, sweatpants and T-shirt.
The challenge and opportunity with this collection was to respect the originals, but make them my own. It was also important for me to mix in environmentally preferred materials where we could and present them in a way that felt fresh. – Eilish
“For the AF1, Eilish chose a synthetic nubuck material, which uses 80% recycled materials, for a super soft look and feel. Her signature oversized style is emphasized through the shoe’s chunky midfoot straps, an element inspired by two other Nike classics, the Alpha Force Low and Air Trainer 3. These straps cover the shoe’s laces and are finished with tabs that mirror the Nike Grind midsole. The full package is complete with a striking but simple tonal mushroom color.” – from Nike
The collection will be available from April 25th.
