RICCARDO TISCI “It was not work. It was a celebration — a celebration of life in the sense of a celebration of something. I believe it, I wear it, and I love and I respect it...” Riccardo Tisci's love of the Air Force 1 is long term. Not only is it an everyday staple for the sartorial trailblazer, but it’s a relationship entangled in his childhood. Growing up in Italy, most of his peers took to the pitch. Tisci, on the other hand, was drawn to the hardwood -- until a knee injury deflated his hoop dreams and accelerated his path to prominence within fashion. Still, as one of the most respected creative directors and designers in the world, Tisci’s fascination with roundball holds true. His collections often intersect sport and fashion. Women in couture beneath a basketball hoop and menswear showcased using the curvature of lines on a ball as a source of inspiration are a testament to his reverence for the game's aesthetic. Indeed, this love of the game, along with a vibrant aesthetic, is what makes the Nike + R.T. AF1 Collection so special.
