With the release of the Off-White™ x Nike “Football, Mon Amour” collection is just around the corner, we now have a closer look at the essential Magia Match Ball from the special range. A key item of the collaboration, the design found on the Magia Match Ball straddles a nuanced expression of fashion while displaying the visceral nature of sport branding.

Building on Nike‘s first ever soccer ball produced in 1984, Virgil Abloh borrowed the French artistic technique of Trompe-l’œil to deceive the eye into a new perspective. Utilizing a contrasting black-white color scheme accented by a heavy weathering design process, faded branding and an off white tone dominating adds depth to the field ready item. Complete with a co-branded holder and special packaging, the Off-White™ x Nike “Football, Mon Amour” Magia Match Ball is set to release June 14 at select retailers.
