The collection is noteworthy because Ambush creative director Yoon Ahn is the first female designer to partner with Nike on an NBA collection.
Offered in either the Lakers or the Nets team colors, offerings include a button-up nylon jacket, tear-away warm-up pants featuring a contrast colo double waist band along with a stretch, long-sleeve top.
The collection is highlighted by a pair of Nike Dunk High sneaker (style code: CU7544-001) in white/black-spruce aura detailed with Swooshes whose tails extends beyond the back of the shoe.
The shoe takes inspiration from Japanese motorcycle, car and truck culture with the extended Swooshes mimicking the design of bike pipes. “I thought, ‘How can I make the shoes almost look like this moving thing?'” explained Yoon.
In press on the ’90s-themed effort, Ahn stated, “The project began with a conversation about making women feel proud to represent their favorite teams. We were considering how to balance the culture of the sport without losing style.”
