What if Nike became a high-end apparel brand dipped in leather?
NIKE'S SWOOSH is as acclaimed as the brand's products themselves, having its own legion of fans such as the Bigger Swoosh Movement. But this Milanese graphic designer wants to take it further than just changing its size.
DAVIDE PERELLA took the sportswear giant and turned it into a luxury brand with drops like Stüssy x Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 heels, a leather-stitched loafer, (not so) classic handbags, and an ode to the Dior's Saddle bag.
And we do need to highlight the Stüssy's heels. This particular design makes Davide's vision pretty clear. Even in heels form, the sporty collab Stüssy x Nike carries a high-performance heritage of the Nike's Running style. This time around, though, it includes suede detailing to add that forever-lush feel.
One thing that connects every design is how the designer was able to reinvent the Swoosh but still making it look like it carries that Nike's signature energy.
These are just renders taken off Perella's imagination, but we can think of a lot of people who would like to see this capsule deluxe collection come to life. Are you one of them?
