Riccardo Tisci's next move for NikeLab involves an imaginary NBA team
The designer gets his head in the game for an upcoming NikeLab drop

Riccardo Tisci has been hard at work since his departure from Givenchy. Joining forces with NikeLab for a second release this year, at the core of the collaboration is a fictional NBA team — the Victorious Minotaurs — for whom Tisci has designed a special logo to immortalise the collection. 

NikeLab x RT Victorious Minotaurs will turn out four products for men and three for women, with an accessory range tacked on slated to retail end October. An oxford shirt, track pants, varsity jacket and Air Force 1 sneakers have been revealed to be part of the offering. The designer said of his inspiration, "In the '90s, basketball players became kind of like rock stars, but now they're more than that. They're superhuman — representative of historic mythology."
