Nike x Jacquemus celebrates sport and style

Nike and Jacquemus have partnered to create an unmissable expression of sport and style through a collection and campaign that features the city of Paris and Nike’s portfolio of athletes as the ultimate muses

Nike has again partnered with Simon Porte Jacquemus and his eponymous fashion brand to create an unmissable expression of sport and style in celebration of the ultimate muses: the city of Paris and Nike’s global portfolio of athletes.

The brands’ third collection continues to reimagine women’s and men’s sportswear — celebrating style in motion and championing a fluid relationship between performance and fashion.

Included in the collection are 10 distinct lifestyle pieces, such as reimagined tracksuits, T-shirts, statement bras and long skirts. The brands’ third footwear silhouette, the Nike x Jacquemus Air Max 1, infuses a Nike classic with a rounded, cubist Air unit and Jacquemus’ signature effortless style. And the now iconic Le Swoosh bag, which fashions Nike’s trademark visual into a handbag, is back in three new colors and available for the first time across select Nike retail.

“This collection is born from the inspiration I find every day in Paris and in Nike’s athletes and the sports references I have always loved,” says Jacquemus. “I see the collection as a mix of sport, fashion and culture in the most beautiful city in the world, where Nike athletes will take center stage this summer.”

The collection builds on a longstanding partnership between Nike and Jacquemus. The brands first collaborated in 2022 by mixing elevated silhouettes with athletic ready-to-wear pieces for a debut collection inspired by vintage ACG and ’90s Nike campaigns. More recent collaborations, such as 2023’s J Force 1 — inspired in part by the Air Force 1, an icon of both performance and style — look equally at home in an art museum as they do in lived-in spaces in the outside world. Most recently, the Spring 2024 collection debuted the Le Swoosh bag, a first-of-its-kind accessory that represents Nike, as imagined by Jacquemus, at its purest.

This summer’s collection nods to Jacquemus’ French roots and comes in red, white, blue and silver colorways. Launching with the collection is a campaign and short filmJ’aime Paris, which marks Jacquemus’ directorial debut and features a cross-generational cast of global athletes; French icons; and vibrant muses across contemporary culture, including Serena Williams, Juliette Binoche, Central Cee and Lila Moss.

“When in Paris, the world simply feels different: more romantic, artistic and beautiful,” says Jacquemus. “J’aime Paris is an ode to the city I adore, drawing out all I love about this vibrant place and how those inspirations manifest in my third collection with Nike. This video is a blend of Jacquemus’ icons and unique mix of talents that represents French culture.”

The Summer 2024 collection launched July 10 across and Jacquemus retail, including an exclusive silver colorway of the Nike x Jacquemus Air Max 1. The collection will become available on Nike platforms July 23, when the Le Swoosh bag and Air Max 1 drop on SNKRS and the apparel collection launches across On July 25, the full collection will be available across and at select retailers.
