Global athletic brand titan Nike has linked up with Chinese-born designer Sensen Lii of Windowsen to create a conceptual collection. Part of Nike’s Move to Zero sustainability-themed initiative, the dramatic collection is currently on display at the Nike House of Innovation concept store in Shanghai.
Offerings include a floor-dragging faux fur coat, tulle ballgown, bustier and futuristic gloves among other items, Lii’s looks put an avant garde spin on Nike’s sporty minimalist design ethos. The looks worn by mannequins are paired with Nike’s new VaporMax 2020 Flyknit sneaker, a shoe constructed of 75 percent recycled materials.
In addition to making a splashy design statement, the textiles and shoes used in the display are in accordance with Nike’s Move to Zero program, an effort first announced in September 2019 with a stated goal of moving the brand toward zero carbon and zero waste.
Press on the initiative reads, “It is a continuation of Nike’s deep commitment to sustainability and is driven by belief that protecting the planet means protecting the future of sport against climate change.”
