Speaking on the collection and the SS20 runway show which saw the pieces debuted for the first time, Virgil Abloh says “I started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer, and at the time, I was very much inspired by the aesthetic and style of track and field athletes. As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my SS19 Off-White™ runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection.”
The collection is expected to hit shelves November 14th, take a look at the campaign
