The New Nordstrom x Nike Collection Proves Streetwear Can Be Sexy – Nordstrom x Nike has teamed up with stylist Dianne Garcia for a nine-piece collaboration. Not only does the Los Angeles dress our favourite cosy girls like Ella Mai and SZA she’s also responsible for Kendrick Lamar‘s laidback look. For her collaboration with Nordstrom x Nike, she brought her streetwear sensibilities to Nike’s classic style.
Dianne Garcia is always on the go. Or as her Instagram bio so succinctly puts it, she’s “actually working.” The Los Angeles-based stylist is the mastermind behind the smooth, understated, and street-rooted style of Compton’s golden child, Kendrick Lamar. She’s also responsible for SZA’s dreamy aesthetic that’s equal parts girly and rugged tomboy, and the look of R&B’s newest sensation, Ella Mai. So yes, Garcia’s plate is full, but that hasn’t stopped the fashion wunderkind from delving into an exclusive ready-to-wear collection for Nordstrom x Nike designed with working women in mind.
The collection includes biker shorts, bodysuits, hoodies and fanny packs that are reimagined with a more futuristic aesthetic. White Swooshes are used to add contrast to the asymmetrical garments and accessories. Garcia and fellow stylist Danasia Sutton pose in the collection’s lookbook sporting the Air Force 1 Sage Hi, the ultimate winter shoe.
Nike debuted The 1 Reimagined series earlier this year, and now the Swoosh has taken the Air Force 1 Sage Hi and elevated it even further. This time around, the design gets a high-top boot look, with an upper crafted from a water-resistant material making them ideal for the Fall/Winter season. The seamless construction is finished off with a sturdy strap at the ankle, as well as a buckle and a full zip-up closure on the side. Coming in a monochrome design, the sneaker sports Nike’s signature Swoosh in a glossy finish as well as a thick, white platform to bring the boot together.

“My goal for this was to design something for the everyday modern woman who wants something comfortable, functional, and easy to put together on-the-go without compromising style. A lot of the materials used in this collection are similar in texture so they’re not competing. I think everything is also comfortable which gives it an effortless feel period. The shapes are dramatic, but once you put it on it’s quite comfortable – a comfortable but stylish woman reads effortlessness.” – Dianne Quoted Hypebae
