Designer Riccardo Tisci may have departed his post at Givenchy this year, but from the looks of it, he’s certainly been staying very busy. This weekend on Instagram, Tisci posted a black-and-white image of himself behind the iconic Nike Swoosh, with the insignia “R.T.” and a star on the lower righthand corner, alluding to a sneaker collaboration with the brand.
“Dreams come true #NikeRT #NikeBasketball #NikeNBA #comingsoon #nyc,” the designer captioned the photo.
Beyond revealing that Tisci like a hashtag, it appeared from the post that the shoes are going to be basketball related and we had questions.
But Tisci answered at least some of them in a follow-up post featuring a cool red, white, and blue R.T. Nike logo.
“I'm honored to be part of this important moment as @Nike reclaims its partnership with the @NBA #NikeRT#NikeBasketball,” he enthused.
Nike + NBA + Riccardo? This is a big deal, guys, and we can’t wait to see what the shoes will look like!
