Inside Billie Eilish X Nike’s Upcoming Drop
| LAST UPDATE 04/14/2022
Billie Eilish is not only killing the music industry, but she's continuing to take her talents to the world of fashion! The bad guy artist took to the 'gram to announce the highly-awaited details of her upcoming collab with Nike. Here's what to know.
The collection will feature Nike's classic Air Force 1s - reworked with a Billie twist. The young superstar has dominated the fashion industry with her eclectic Gen Z-inspired looks, influencing her fans everywhere to follow suit-wearing bright and mix-matched designs and colors. The artist is also famously known for dying her hair green - talk about making a statement. Naturally, this young trendsetter is ready to join the world of fashion with her recent collaborations with H&M, Bershka, and Urban Outfitters. She even just dropped a debut fragrance, "Eilish." But now she's entering the sneaker game. Being a sneakerhead herself, her partnership with Nike only feels natural. Joining many other celebs who have partnered with Nike in the past, the artist initially linked up with the brand in September 2021 - when she designed two pairs of sneakers, futuristic Air Jordan 15's and lime green Air Jordan 1s, that sold out instantly.
Keeping the collection as ecofriendly as possible, the Billie x Nike Air Force 1 "Mushroom" collab uses environmentally preferred materials and recycled materials. The monochromatic light brown AFIs showcase Eilish's style with the shoe's chunky midfoot straps, inspired by the Alpha Force Low and Air Trainer 3's. "The challenge and opportunity with this collection was to respect the originals, but make them my own," Eilish noted. "It was also important for me to mix in environmentally preferred materials where we could and present them in a way that felt fresh." The beige kicks will rep both the classic Swoosh and Eilish's name embedded on the footbed.
Not only will the power duo be dropping sneakers, but matching apparel will also be available that represents the singer's oversized looks. Keeping with the same color scheme, the collection will include a beige hoodie, sweatpants, and T-shirt - all embossed with "Billie Ellish" graphics. The Nike Air Force 1 "Billie" and apparel will be available April 24 globally on SNKRS and on the singers' website. But if you're looking to cop a pair, get in line because the shoes are already in high demand...
