Simon Porte Jacquemus took his eponymous label to Arles in the south of France to present Jacqeumus’ Fall/Winter 2022 “Le Papier” and while the dramatic backdrop of the Salt Mountains in Camargue Park was undoubtedly the main talking point of the show, the official The runway revealed its partnership with Nike (NYSE: NKE + 3.10%). was the most important moment. Unsurprisingly, the collection sold out the second it was released exclusively on Jacquemus’ website on June 28, but don’t worry because there will soon be other ways to get involved in the collaboration.
Speaking about the collaboration, Simon Porte Jacquemus said: “For the collaboration with Nike, I wanted to create a collection that reinterprets sportswomen’s wear in a minimal way. I’ve always been inspired by the retro ACG work of the 90s and the Nike movement. With this imagery in mind, we designed women’s sportswear with sensual details and neutral colors, as well as my own interpretation of Humara – my favorite Nike shoe. It was important that the collection be easily accessible, fit all bodies, and be a natural blend of Jacquemus style and Nike performance.
As Jacqeumus says, this collection is for all bodies. So the pair wanted to give many others another chance to get collaborating, which included everything from the highly sought-after Air Humara sneakers in a variety of inclusive sizes to sportswear-derived pieces like the Dri-FIT tennis skirt and dress, and of course the hoodies and bucket hats that stole the hearts of fashion lovers.
The hoodie was a particularly key item in the collection, as it followed the “Le Papier” runway theme. As such, it is presented in a natural cream color with brown drawstrings, combined with Jacquemus’ interpretation of the Nike Mini Swirl, finished with a touch of gold for sophistication. It is exquisitely simple with the bucket cap, perfect for pairing with the Air Humara, assuming you can handle them.
With this in mind, Nike will be re-supplying its collaboration with Jacquemus on Nike’s website SNKRS and a range of retailers around the world from July 7 onwards. You can visit the dedicated Nike website for more information about the release in your area. Check out the collection on the runway and some detailed shots above, and respond quickly when the 7 falls again, with apparel prices ranging from $40 to $175 and footwear prices ranging from $170.
