Nike and Virgil Abloh have continued their longstanding partnership with the unveiling of the second installment of the women’s “Athlete In Progress” collection. The new capsule follows on from a release earlier this year, which included the Off-White™ x Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 5 and was launched with a campaign featuring Caster Semenya.

For the second capsule in the collection, Nike and Abloh have worked with World Champion 200-meter sprinter Dina Asher-Smith to model the range. The athletic-influenced collection sees a number of pieces in yellow, including track tops and running leggings. Elsewhere, the capsule features lightweight outerwear, a tonal black technical vest-meets-backpack and pieces in a yellow, black and white tie-dye effect.

Additionally, the latest “Athlete In Progress” capsule sees the introduction of three Off-White™ x Nike Vapor Street colorways, which were first teased during Off-White™’s Spring/Summer 2019 before getting a closer look earlier this year. The sneaker features a translucent overlay with textile underlays, React foam cushioning system and a range of signature Virgil Abloh design touches. The three colorways set to drop are “Black/White/Black/Laser Fuchsia,” “Polarized Blue/Tour Yellow” and “Tour Yellow/Black/Light Bone.”

Launching the collection, Abloh explained the origins of the project: “I started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer and at the time, I was very much inspired by the aesthetic and style of track and field athletes. As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my SS19 Off-White runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection.”

The second installment of the “Athlete In Progress” collection — including the Off-White™ x Nike Vapor Street — is set to arrive at select stockists and the Nike web store on November 14.

In other Nike news, the brand has recently revealed the all-new React Infinity Run.
