As the collection were slowly revealed, the initial inspiration from the basketball theme were demonstrated with the designs and materials closely referenced to the surface of the ball characteristics produced in this season’s abstract prints. The spherical shape of the ball and it’s ribs configured the details at the hips of pants and rounded puffer jackets with silver zipper embellishments resemble the black rib groves of a basketball. Graphic button up cotton poplin shirts with reference with other basketball elements and bauhaus inspired colour lines are a tactic sketches used by basketball coaches. A pull over top crafted out of what could have been hoop netting and a team jersey knitted out of fluffy angora wool were other inventive ways to expand the sporty inspiration.
Without a doubt, all of the looks were finished off with a pristine pair of Nike basketball trainers. After all Tisci is now collaborating with the sportswear giant. It is the finale score for Riccardo Tisci’s dreams made for high-street sartorial. See below: The current resemblance of the Givenchy’s high-top sneakers in comparison with the Nike Airforce 1.
