the first Nike NBA collab with a female designer
AMBUSH is celebrating basketball culture with this new Nike NBA capsule collab made with female basketball fans in mind, AND IT'S MARKING THE FIRST TIME THAT A FEMALE DESIGNER HAS WORKED IN TANDEM WITH NIKE AND THE NBA.
YOON reimagined the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets apparel, focusing on the colors of the teams to draw on her multidimensional, multidisciplinary point of view. In a street-meets-sport style, the two influential teams from different coasts met YOON 90s references, and so the collab took shape.
Although the color-blocking of the yin and yang is naturally, purposely simple, the construction is not. The high-cut Nike Dunk comes in white and black leather, with a signature feature arriving through rubberized midfoot Swooshes that jut out far behind the heel, and the overall silhouette is both elongated and heightened.
The 💣 is set to release Dec 11 at Nike's webstore and Nike SNKRS.
