After joining forces earlier this year to resurrect the ’80s Nike Eagle, Black COMME des GARÇONS and Nike come together once again for a series of tees and tote bags — offering an updated line of everyday basics. BLACK CdG was founded by Rei Kawakubo back in 2009 as a response to The Great Recession. As the name suggests, the sublabel focused on cycling popular CDG styles in black within small spaces under 40 sqm in a process dubbed “speed merchandising.” The result was the introduction of accessible and energetic pieces that fans could quickly scoop up.

The latest Black CdG x Nike collaboration calls for a more caring world with overlaid retro branding of the biblical quote “Love Thy Neighbour” and “Calm In Your Heart.” Tees feature co-branded tags and totes come with short carrying handles.

The latest collection will arrive online and at BLACK COMME des GARÇONS stores on August 26. Prices range from ¥11,000 to ¥12,100 JPY (approximately $80 to $88 USD) for the tote bags and T-shirts respectively.
