Simon Porte Jacquemus has revealed his continued collaboration with the iconic American sportswear giant, Nike. The French design maestro is set to introduce a sophisticated new iteration: the low white Jacquemus x Nike J Force 1.
Jacquemus, who has always been at the forefront of fashion innovation, has been hard at work with Nike, crafting a truly distinctive sneaker that left a lasting impression on 2022 and shows no signs of slowing down in 2023.
Last summer, the dynamic duo tantalized the fashion world with not one, but two sensational releases: the earthy-hued Jacquemus x Nike Air Humara in beige and brown, and a chic apparel collection that effortlessly married French elegance with sportswear functionality. The unveiling of these pieces led to an expected frenzy, swiftly leading to a total sellout.
Their creative partnership blossomed further with the introduction of an audacious sequel: the Jacquemus x Nike Air Humara Pink Flash. This unexpected alliance reinvigorated the sneaker scene in 2022, as devotees of the French brand snapped up the stylish offerings.
This year, Jacquemus is set to put his unique stamp on a revered classic, the Air Force 1. The full design, steeped in Jacquemus’s aesthetic genius, has finally been unveiled and is predicted to be the “must-have” accessory of the upcoming summer season.
The sneaker features a clean, white leather exterior and a mesh tongue and lining, an ode to the time-honored AF1 design. On closer inspection, the details reveal a high level of craftsmanship: a white braided sole lends an air of sophistication, influenced by Jacquemus’s favored Nike ACG Terra.
The metal lace locks bear the moniker “JF1”, aligning perfectly with a miniature metallic swoosh. Subtle co-branding is embossed on the heel tab, and a distinctive waffle outsole, adorned with the Jacquemus logo, rounds off the Nike JF1 White.
In line with the enduring full white and full black Air Force 1 tradition, a chic black iteration will accompany this release.
The Jacquemus x Nike J Force 1 Low LX White is set for a June 13 debut on Jacquemus.com and priced at €170. Tune in for more updates.
