Nike has been packing up FIFA World Cup 2010 ammunition for a while now, and are steadily releasing them into the world to whip soccer lovers and fans into a frenzy. After having launched the Mercurial Vapor SuperFly II just last month, Nike had followed up with national team kit releases (where Brazil sported the first drop with the Brazil Black Pack).
Keeping things busy in the south American nation, Nike Sportswear will be launching the True Color Brazilian Kit in Milan this coming Tuesday with a special performance from collaborator NUNCA. The “True Colors Brazil” Pack is a mini-collection dedicated to the Brazilian leg of Nike Sportswear’s Spring/Summer 2010 “Six Collaborations”.
To refresh memories, Nike 6 Collaborations is an extensive collaborative project between Nike and 6 different artists. Each artist is called on to design a special team kit for his or her nation participating in this year’s World Cup. As for Brazil’s kit, the artist featured is Nunca, who had taken inspiration from Incan symbolism and a primitive style of graffiti known as “Pixacao” for his collection. Nunca aims to connect Brazilian culture and her people with the sport they care most about footballâ€”together through his designs on the collection of performance apparel and sports shoes.
Check out some pictures of street artist Nunca at work, and stay tuned for more information from the Brazil True Colors launch at Special in Milan next week. via: freshngood
