x OLIVIA KIM NXN WOMEN'S NIKE AIR FORCE 1 '07
Vice President of Creative Projects at Nordstrom, Olivia Kim, channels the spirit of 1990s, New York City nightlife, with the ‘No Cover’ collection. While the convergence of sportswear and fashion was firmly established by the time the 90s were in full swing, performance was still the driving force behind a majority of products, meaning that models disappeared when technological upgrades came along or were just never available in women’s sizes.
The No Cover collection is comprised of classic footwear silhouettes spanning the whole of the decade: the Air Force 1, Air Jordan IV, Air Mowabb, Air Footscape and Air Max 98, along with a range of apparel basics that were absolutely essential in 90s youth fashion.
Under Kim’s creative aegis, these pieces are transformed into an embodiment of the 90s ideal, with fashion forward, rule breaking, boundary transcending, defying easy categorization represented by the collection’s vibrant colors, bold patterns and distinctive flourishes.
For this special-edition Air Force 1, inspiration came from NYC’s rave scene in the '90s, combining funky, unexpected materials for a loud look that’s made for dancing the night away. The upper is completely covered in a classic blue corduroy, and is accented by a neon snakeskin heeltab and swoosh, which was adapted from 1996's Snake AF1. In these AF1’s though, you don’t even have to carry your own glow sticks to the rave—the sneaker’s midsole and outsole are glow-in-the-dark, swinging everyone’s attention to your suddenly radiant feet.
