Yes! Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci is following up his Nike Dunks with a full apparel collection for Nike.

Two athletic capsule collections, actually. NikeLab x RT: Training Redefined will be out this summer, first with a black and white collection and then a collection that's a mashup of floral and kaleidoscope prints.

That second collection has a tenuous tie to the Olympics since some of the flowers in the floral print hail from Rio de Janeiro. Other flowers are native to Nike's homebase in Portland and Tisci's home in Taranto, Italy. That's sweet.

The black and white collection will be out in July and the print version will be out in August. The RT collab will incorporate Nike's performance fabrics and technology like Dri-FIT and Flyknit.

Track star Sanya Richards-Ross and her out-of-this world abs model the collection in the preview pic, along with decathlete Ashton Eaton.
