Designer Riccardo Tisci, late of Givenchy, is set to launch a new collection with NikeLab, one that celebrates hardwood athleticism and retro sports style through the creation of a fictional basketball team, the Victorious Minotaurs. On the apparel side, there are four distinct pieces for men -- including an oxford shirt, track pant and varsity jacket -- and three for women, as well as a line of accessories. The footwear silhouette takes the form of the NikeLab x RT Air Force 1, the designer’s second take on the silhouette, featuring a logo on the toe box that mimics the NBA's longstanding trademark. The NikeLab x RT "Victorious Minotaurs" collection launches October 12th in North America, October 20th in Paris and October 21st globally. The goods will be available at NikeLab stores and
