In welcoming the vernal equinox and first rain dew of Spring 2012, Nike Sportswear once again consulted with the expansive archive at Liberty of London for some floral inspirations. What it came away with was Liberty’s Lagos Laurel print, a bold fusion of 1960s psychedelic patterns and floral silhouettes. Like the infinite spacial forms of Mandelbrot Set, the elaborate graphic becomes more vibrant when added to backdrop like University Gold, Sport Red, or Imperial Purple. Part of Nike Sportswear Spring 2012 Collection the Nike Sportswear x Liberty – Nike FREE 5.0, along with Cortez and Air Max One, will all be available at select Nike Sportswear retail locations starting April 2nd.
Release Date: April 2nd, 2012 (Tuesday)
