Virgil Abloh and Nike have officially unveiled their next collaboration with the arrival of the Nike c/o Virgil Abloh “Athlete in Progress” collection which salutes the unbreakable confidence held by runners.
For the “Athlete in Progress” collection, Virgil Abloh taps Nike’s rich heritage in track and field. The assortment balances performance product with post-run apparel and footwear inspired by Nike’s storied running shoe designs.
“I started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer and at the time, I was very much inspired by the aesthetic and style of track and field athletes. As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my SS19 Off-White runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection,” says Abloh.
Nike c/o Virgil Abloh “Athlete in Progress” debuted in Paris last September as part of the Off-White SS19 runway show with athletes Dina Asher Smith, Vashti Cunningham, Cecilia Yeung, English Gardner, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Nafi Thiam, Caterine Ibarguen and Rénelle Lamote.
Now, with 800-meter champion Caster Semenya, it readies for the initial limited release inclusive of a run top and tight and the Off-White x Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 5.
The Nike c/o Virgil Abloh “Athlete in Progress” collection releases globally on June 27.
