Riccardo Tisci has a finger in every pie – the fashion designer revealed his new shoe for NikeLab this week in a photo posted on Instagram with model Bella Hadid.
The NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT comes in two colour schemes; black / white or red / white with the retro design inspired by sports culture, skating and the 80s basketball era. It was available for sale in New York City yesterday and will be released globally on the 23 Feb.
This is the fourth collaboration for Tisci and NikeLab and the seventh shoe in the Dunk footwear line. The first six were released in 2016 including the NikeLab Dunk Lux High x RT, two training shoes, the Free Train Force Flyknit x RT and the Transform Flyknit x RT and a Chelsea boot, the Air Zoom Legend x RT.
Tisci has been the talk of the fashion world for the past few days. Following a recent departure from his role as art director for Givenchy where he spent the past 12 years, Tisci is soon-to-sign with Italian fashion house, Versace. Although no official comment has been made, an announcement is rumoured to arrive later this month.
