Sportswear and luxury can coexist harmoniously. Case in point: Let's take a closer look at Riccardo Tisci's NBA x Nike collaboration. In Tisci's latest for NikeLab, the designer reimagines basketball stars as heroes and creates a fictional team called the Victorious Minotaurs.

The collection's star player is obviously the Air Force 1 in a very patriotic red, white, and blue colorway. The rest of the pieces, including the Oxford shirt, track pant, and varsity jacket, appear uniform-like for off-court occasions. Although the styles are pretty unisex, Tisci designed three items just for the ladies as well as a series of accessories.

You can shop the Riccardo Tisci NBA x Nike collaboration starting October 12 in North America, October 20 in Paris, and October 21 worldwide. Until then, browse the lookbook right here.
