2016 is proving to be a year focused on bridging the gap between artistry and fashion, making creative collaboration easier, and more fashionable, than ever. Balmain designer and creative director Olivier Rousteing has teamed up with NikeLab to honor French football in the NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau collection. Growing up, Rousteing loved football and idolized its players, and as an homage, the sleek line focuses on the physique and artistry of the game. This collection is the second of it's kind, a part of the Summer of Sports series over at NikeLab, blending together love for sports and Rousteing's masterful vision.

The minds behind the athletic collection made sure to keep the pieces rooted in versatility and authenticity. The pieces are magnificently sculpted to honor the athletic build; signature pieces include the versatile NikeLab N98 X Or jacket, a zip-up collared piece, and the Nike Lab Top X Or, a sleek tight-fitting shirt - both are garnished with gold accents and matching embroidered crests.

The NikeLab X Oliver Rousteing: Football Nouveau collection will be available starting June 2 online and at select stores.
