The designer celebrated his new collaboration with a sporty soirée

NIKE + R.T. Air Force 1 Collection Unveil with RICCARDO TISCI

What: The unveiling of the Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 collection, the chic sneaker debut from Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci.

When: Wednesday, March 20th.

Where: 151 Mercer Street in New York, where the collaboration will also be available for purchase starting tomorrow.

Who: Tisci was joined by models such as Joan Smalls, Jamie Bochert, Frankie Rayder, and Tao Okamoto, as well as sneaker fiends like football player Victor Cruz and hip hop artist Fabolous, for the evening. Not wanting to miss out, the artist Marina Abramovic was also present.

Why: A cocktail party where sneakers are not only allowed, they are encouraged? The invitation alone had us running.
