RICCARDO TISCI X NIKE COLLABORATION
Riccardo Tisci and Nike have announced a collaboration that’s all about the ball life. Tisci even created a fictional sports team for the collab, which he named Victorious Minotaurs. The collection features shirts, t-shirts, a bomber jacket, accessories, and Tisci’s version of the Air Force 1 sneakers. With the pieces looking as if they came straight out of a best-dressed NBA player’s closet, we’re sure to see them on and off the court.

JW ANDERSON X CONVERSE POP-UP SHOP
October 12 | London, United Kingdom
Ahead of its promised release in early December, JW Anderson opened a surprise pop-up shop for its shoe collab with Converse, the Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 Grid Pack; the shoe was also previewed during the label’s Fall 2017 show in Italy. The pop-up shop carried only a limited number of the Chuck Taylor All Star, and to make it worse for those with serious FOMO tendencies, it was open for only a day.
If you didn’t make it to London this weekend—let’s be real, who did?—you can get your own pair from the JW Anderson website in early December.
