This past Saturday, Steven Harrington and Nike launched their collaborative “Magic Hour” exhibition in Los Angeles, California. The massive presentation featured a slew of diverse paintings, prints, sketches, and sculptures spotlighting Harrington’s signature motifs and a cast of characters from his oeuvre such as the tuxedo-clad Melo the dog and grinning Palm Trees. Another highlight is an outdoor mural located outside of the venue that spans 16 feet wide. Altogether, a total of 50 works are on display.
To further commemorate the event, the Swoosh enlisted the LA-based artist to design three classic pairs such as the Nike Air Force 1, Blazer, and Cortez. All kicks are predominantly adorned in white, embellished with vivid co-branded graphics across their uppers and insoles. Moreover, apparel and accessories also launched at the partnered showcase.

04.22.19 ? Available soon. My Flyleather collaboration with @Nike will be available on the Nike SNKRS app this coming Monday at 7:00am PST. I’m so happy with how this project turned out: not just because of how clean the footwear printed… or because of how much I’m in love w Nike… But because the whole collection is made out of recycled materials that would have otherwise been sent to landfills. ♻️ I’m really excited to be a part of the future of fashion/function. I also keep getting asked about the colors we used on the collection – I pulled swatches of custom mixed paint directly from the paint colors I used for the “Magic Hour” exhibition. Sea foam greens, misty purples and sunset corals… Swipe for more.?? And last, I just wanted to thank the whole Nike team for all the awesome work on this project- It really took a big team to make this project happen and I can’t thank u enough! I’m so excited to release this project w u all…?
