In her new Nike collection, designer, Martine Rose, has created gender-free tailored apparel pieces for football (soccer). The collection was created for footballers to wear ahead of this summer’s premier sporting event.

“When a woman wears a suit, it expresses strength, resilience and beauty,” says Rose. “I want women to feel powerful in their suits like men do. More than that, although I’m using women to tell the story, there’s no gender attached to the suit. Anyone can wear it. I hope one day we’re not talking about gender in sports and are just talking about the sport. Once everything is stripped back, it’s just the game that’s left.”

The Nike x Martine Rose Collection features a player’s suit jacket, trousers, trench and shirt; accessories, including stockings, gloves and sunglasses and the latest iteration of the Nike x Martine Rose Shox Mule MR 4.

“I love the mash-up that sports and fashion and culture has become, and as an athlete, I’ve always wanted what we wear to stand for more,” says Megan Rapinoe, Nike athlete, United States Women’s National Team member and muse for the Nike x Martine Rose Collection. “I think Martine, as a designer inspired by sports culture, is able to pull so much meaning into her work, and for her to be able to express herself through this moment that is so special to us is really cool – and obviously the pieces are just dope.” 

The collection will be available exclusively on Martine-Rose.com on July 25, on the Nike SNKRS app and at select specialty stores on July 27.
