Virgil Abloh and Nike have officially unveiled his latest “Football, Mon Amour” Collection that will release on the same day as the kick off to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The collection consists of footwear and apparel, including the Off-White x Nike Zoom Fly Mercurial Flyknit in both Black and Orange color options.
According to Nike, Abloh drew inspiration for the collection from memories of his youth, like playing hip hop tracks on his way to soccer matches, and fusing them with his lifestyle interests and sports branding. Pieces reference Abloh’s own playing years—all of the numbers were worn by him personally. The jersey’s black and white checker board print is a nod to Czech strips and a logo depicting a lion juggling dots pays homage to ubiquitous crests.
