Heron Preston looks to be having the best start to 2019. After teasing his first sneaker collaboration with the swoosh at Paris Fashion Week, Nike has now unveiled a complementary apparel collection. Inspired by the football fields, the Heron Preston x Nike apparel collection will see the multi-faceted creative put his own twist on football paraphernalia.

The collection will feature football jerseys, a short-sleeved hoodie, football gloves, hand warmers, and a chrome-dipped football. Heron Preston branding can be found on all of the pieces, including his iconic Russian logo and brand tag. Other details include stacked swooshes, a heron graphic and a modified Nike logo. The branding and detailing are in orange, accenting the primarily black and white garments. Number 87 is featured prominently on the apparel, being Preston’s jersey number when he played American football back in high school. Nike has noted that the football jerseys are intended to be layered over a long sleeve shirt. The Heron Preston x Nike Huarache EDGE sneaker that debuted at his fashion show earlier fits seamlessly into the collection.
