NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka by Riccardo Tisci Latest Update Features Bella Hadid Naked.
Our latest look at the NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka RT by Riccardo Tisci includes a seemingly naked Bella Hadid atop Tisci. NikeLab seems to have mastered the process of high fashion collaborations. From Louis Vuitton’s Kim Jones tech-fleece to Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing World Cup collection, NikeLab fashion collabs have been on fire. For the latest installment, the footwear empire teams up with Riccardo Tisci for the NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka RT.
Teasing the update is model Bella Hadid naked, or almost naked, sitting on Riccardo Tisci’s lap. Both Tisci and Bella are wearing the new NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka RT shoe, of course. Bella Hadid posted the pic on her personal Instagram account with the following caption. New RT X @nike !!!!! I 🖤You!!! #TeamNike #NikeLab #Tisci So proud ! Thank you @riccardotisci17 💓💓💓
However, this isn’t Tisci’s first time working with Nike. The Ricardo Tisci/NikeLab relationship dates back to 2014 where he revamped the highly popular Air Force One shoe. It was an instant hit and in 2016, Riccardo Tisci and Nike decided to rekindle old flames. The duo released a series of fashion forward collabs including the NikeLab Dunk Lux High x RT, the Free Train Force Flyknit x RT, the Transform Flyknit x RT and even a Chelsea boot, the Air Zoom Legend x RT.
This time around, Tisci updates his prior Dunk attempt. Unlike 2016’s NikeLab Dunk Lux High x RT, however, Tisci pursues a more retro 1980s vibe shaving the extra inches off the ankle thus creating a perfect mid-top silhouette. In addition to the slim profile, the Dunk Lux Chukka RT comes in two classic feeling color-ways: black/white and red/white. However, there are a few differences between the NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RTs and the original Nike Dunk shoe. Most notably, Tisci’s Chukka features no toe perforations, a classic design element of the originals. Of course Tisci didn’t resist making his mark on the Dunk Lux Chukka’s with a few luxe details. Tisci’s revamp includes enlarged foxing and eyestays, Lunarlon insole, debossed logo details on the heel and a custom RT logo.
Tisci shares his thoughts on the Dunk shoe and its place in fashion in an official release. “I think the Dunk has something that’s very special. It’s grounded in sport as well as in the street style culture. For younger generations it can fit as many different styles tribes as you can imagine. I think it’s one of the most iconic shoes that Nike has ever created.”
All eyes are on Riccardo Tisci after his surprise exit from Givenchy making the release of the Nike Dunk Lux Chukka RT highly anticipated.
