Maria Sharapova promotes new NikeLab x Sacai collection


Vogue announced on November 3rd that Maria Sharapova is the face of designer Chitose Abe’s NikeLab x Sacai collection, a new line that aims to fuse the comfort of active wear with style. Abe (pictured below) hopes to bring in classic Nike looks along with defining elements from her own Sacai label.



Instead of being overtly trendy and daring, however, the line’s specialties include timeless wardrobe staples such as the cardigan or the windbreaker jacket. Variations in color, pleating, and silhouettes are what bring an innovative feel to the classic pieces. A recurring feature is an oversized, billowy back to jackets and tops in the collection, as seen in the pictures below. The flared back in Maria’s neon yellow and navy jacket seems ideal for stylish comfort, while the pleated back in the second model’s look plays with varying textures and makes more of a statement.


Maria, who has also announced that a book about her life and career will hit stores in 2017, lauds the pieces for being versatile and easy to layer together for new looks across all seasons. If the fashionista herself thinks so, there’s a chance others may as well. Perhaps we will see more of NikeLab x Sacai on tour this coming season.

  1. Did Serena wear one of those jackets back during Madrid? [link expired]
    The one she’s wearing here looks a lot like them. I don’t think she wore it for the rest of the tournament, just for the first match

  2. Ga, wow you have a sharp eye! And excellent memory! It definitely is the same silhouette, but I doubt it can be the same collection, since this Sacai one has been launched recently. Or maybe Serena wore like a trial piece? :/
