Billie Eilish unveils the new Nike collection | arts and entertainment
Billie Eilish unveiled her new collection with Nike, featuring a pair of Air Force 1s and more.
The 20-year-old Grammy winner designed a durable AF 1 High Mushroom sneaker, which is a “fresh” take on the iconic shoe.
She said in a press release: “The challenge and the opportunity with this collection was to respect the originals, but to make them my own.
“It was also important to me to mix eco-friendly materials where we could and present them in a way that felt fresh.”
The beige shoes feature the Billie’s Bloshsh logo on the lace linings and the insoles feature the slogan: “It’s hard to stop it once it’s started.”
In addition to Air Force 1s, the “Happier Than Ever” singer has a number of loungewear items on the way, including a fleece hoodie, tee and track pants in the same neutral tones.
The Billie Eilish x Nike Air Force 1 High Mushroom apparel line will be available for the first time on April 24 via Billie and Nike’s SNKRS website on April 25.
Last year, Billie launched a collection of vegan Air Jordan sneakers.
The “Lost Cause” singer created two silhouettes, a version of the Air Jordan 1 KO and the Air Jordan 15 in lime green and a nude color.
The megastar said it was a “surreal experience” to collaborate with the Jordan brand on his own iconic shoe designs made famous by retired basketball champion Michael Jordan.
Alongside two promotional snaps of herself wearing the shoes, Billie wrote on Instagram at the time: “So excited to finally share my two air jordan silhouettes with you!! Always loved @jumpman23 and it was so amazing and surreal the experience of creating them, especially in a sustainable way (100% vegan with over 20% recycled materials). store.billieeilish.com and 9/30 on the nike SNKRS app! and you can go behind the designs on SNKRS now for more!! heheheee (sic)”
The Oscar-winning actor followed in the footsteps of Travis Scott, Drake and J Balvin by collaborating with Jordan Brand.
