Inspired by athletes training for this summer's Olympic games, the collection uses Nike's performance technologies such as Dri-FIT and Flyknit, and modern silhouettes provide new performance solutions with a fashionable edge.Like, the NikeLab Kaleidoscope Dri-FIT 2-in-1 Short x RT blends the performance of full-length tights with the styling of shorts. Despite the two layers, the garment features just one waistband for a zero-distraction feel.

"This collection represents an entirely new way of thinking for Riccardo," says NikeLab Senior Design Director Jarrett Reynolds. "It is engineered for performance, which is unfamiliar territory for him. But that's the beauty of collaboration — we can help bring Riccardo into the world of sport performance, which is our expertise. On the other hand, Riccardo's vision pushed our design to a place we wouldn't have arrived at on our own."

"It was interesting…a little bit of a difficult process because to make something that is very dynamic, to do sport and to do activity, and make it strongly recognizable — a fashion statement — is not easy," Tisci says. "But we achieved something that's amazing. There's a lot of sensuality." 

The NikeLab x RT: Training Redefined collection will arrive in July 2016, with a second release scheduled the following month.
