Nike X Liberty London Summer 2011

Hey All, me again.

Opposites in fashion are rife; department stores & independent boutiques, vintage & current season, fast fashion & Haute Couture… and functional & decorative. Quite often, especially in recent seasons, these elements cross paths to create something really impressive.

Three years ago, Nike and Liberty of London collaborated on a trainer collection that resulted in a hugely successful, sell-out line, which, due to very limited (should that be exclusive?) production, pretty much no-one got to wear.

But joy, April 1st, 2011 saw the launch of a second line. Liberty have again lent their infamous, quirky, floral prints to some of Nike‘s classic trainer styles. The collection comprises 12 pairs in 5 styles, including the High Skinny Premium Dunks, Blazers, and the Air Force Ones.

Prints are mainly floral, including the abstract dandelions of the ‘Umbel‘ print and the delicate posies of ‘Tatum. However, it’s the bi-planes and Spitfires of the ‘Tom’s Jets print that floats my boat.

Though maybe it’s the shape of the shoe too, because I love the Kara’s Trees’ High Skinny Premium Dunks almost as much.

The collection launched exclusively in Liberty (April 1st) and it looks like they’re pretty much sold out already. BUT, the collection is set to launch in Office stores and various independent boutiques globally May 1st. Prices are £65-£80 so please cross your fingers I get to own a pair (and the € price isn’t too mental).

Yours

P.S. If you haven’t been to the mock Tudor magnificence that is Liberty of London, near Carnaby Street, I hope you won’t mind if I recommend it.
