Nike & FKA Twigs Partnered On An Ad That Is Not Your Typical Athletic Commercial — VIDEO
Lately sportswear brands and celebrities are teaming up for some serious advertorial home runs. I mean, there’s Puma and Kylie Jenner, then Puma and The Weeknd, and now, Nike’s decided to get in on the action, as well. Nike teamed up with FKA Twigs to create a campaign, and fans of both the brand and the singer are losing their minds over it.
According to Fashionista, FKA Twigs wasn’t involved in the design process for any products featured in the collab, but was instead in charge of creating the video advertising Nike’s latest product. Refinery29 reports it's the Zonal Strength Tights that are being advertised here, but this is much more than your average athletic gear commercial. The video features an original song from the singer herself and a slew of dancers and athletes. The campaign’s slogan is “Do You Believe In More?,” and it’s all about what our bodies can do.
“I put together a cast of 12 incredible athletes to show that it’s about what you do in fitness gear. It's about how you train. It's about how those things help your movement,” FKA Twigs said in a press release.
The range includes training tights, sports bras and more. It’s available to shop on the Nike website now.
Nike X FKA Twigs is showing us what it's like to be fierce.
I mean, wow.
This type of approach to athletic campaigns couldn't be cooler, and Twitter is appropriately enthusiastic.
