180grammes of Parisian Nike

Nike Paris collaborates with cool dyers 180grammes to produce a colourful retro Bastille sports range.

Text by Martina Randles

180grammes are the French fashion designers who create hand dyed, hand painted and customised garments. Their beauty lies in the distinctive finishes created from their unique dying techniques and the breadth of colourways they offer.

The collaboration with Nike takes the classic Bastille range to give it the 180grammes treatment; the result is retro sportswear customised with chiffon and ribbon; hand painted trainers with leather laces and comfy lambskin quilted lining. The designs are available in a multitude of colourways, 15 colours in total, each having their own number taken from the 180gramme range.

The limited edition collection is available in the Nike Paris store from 09 April 2009.
