The six-piece collection, which is the first partnership between the three, and the retailer’s first project with an athlete, is comprised of an oversize T-shirt, hoodie and overcoat, track jacket and pants, and a sweatpant trouser, all ranging in price between $125 and $395. The collection will also be available at Nike Lab 21 Mercer and Chicago and the Nike Lab web site on Dec. 5.
“I’ve always loved fashion and the creative process when it comes to designing. When the opportunity came for me and Jordan Brand to collaborate with another brand, Opening Ceremony was a perfect match,” Westbrook said. “I liked the idea of doing something with bold color patterns and adventurous silhouettes and I’m excited to see this collection come to life.”
“When Russell and I sat down together to design, it started a creative dialogue and synergy of true collaboration,” said Opening Ceremony cofounder and creative director Humberto Leon. “The resulting collection shows how together we reworked our favorite Air Jordan essentials into new garments and we’re looking forward to seeing how the public puts their own spin on these pieces by incorporating them into their daily wardrobes.”
Opening Ceremony is also launching on Nov. 15 a collection with Walt Cassidy, also known as Waltpaper, for his new book New York: Club Kids. The collection will also be available at Opening Ceremony stores in New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
