Nike Sportswear x Delta Netherlands Team Kit
Next up in the Nike Sportswear collaboration series for the upcoming soccer worldcup is a the Netherland Team Kit. They worked with iconic graffiti artist Delta on the kit.
Graffiti artist Delta, aka Boris Tellegen, has created a geometric world with his art that is a colorful reflection of the constructivist movement that brings to mind both block-like cities as well as pixelized digital environments. A rabid football fan, he was especially excited to play with the colorways on The Netherlands’ new kits. His artwork for the assortment is an extension of his blocky visual language: The boxy mascot is a simple-yet-dynamic running man, the crest is a cubic puzzle of numbers, and the font is unlike anything before it – heavy as concrete, but somehow agile through its italicized forward lean.
The Nike Sportswear x Delta Netherlands Team Kit includes the AW77 hoodie, polo shirts, the Air Max BW Gen II, Air LunarLite Rejuven8 Mid and Dunk High AC.
