Nike's Latest Collab With Liberty Is A Major Sportswear Move

We'll say this much — Nike is truly kicking things up this summer. The sportswear brand has just announced an explosive collaboration with famed Brit pattern-makers Liberty, set to be released just in time for summer. But, you won't find Liberty's trademark floral prints this time — instead, the brand's design team has unearthed the Merlin print, a dazzling configuration of retro geometric shapes and panels that was originally designed for a silk scarf back in 1972. From the looks of it, Merlin got a fresh update for Nike's silhouettes. Click on through for a peek at the forthcoming sneaker and apparel collection. And, be sure to mark your calendars for May 15 (or May 4, in the case of one style), when these goods will be up for grabs.
