Virgil Abloh and Nike have teamed up once again to release a collection of footwear and apparel for Serena Williams in celebration of the 50th U.S. Open tournament.
The collaboration began when Abloh and the NikeCourt design team met in Paris to discuss a performance dress for Williams. Nike sent a body form designed specifically for Williams’ figure to Italy to explore options with materials, then it was flown back to Indian Wells, California, where Williams could pick the features of the dress that spoke to her.
Highlighted by its footwear lineup, that includes special colorways of the Nike Air Max 97 and Nike Blazer Mid, while Serena will wear a PE version of the Nike Court Flare 2. Each model is completed with the signature Off-White detailing.
Official release information has yet to be confirmed, but you can expect more details for “The Queen” Collection to come very soon.
