FKA twigs has directed a two-minute film for Nike which celebrates the power of movement in forging identity.
She’s picked 12 artists in different fields – from Olympic fencing to krumping –who are given a chance to show their talents. And show the NikeWomen’s Spring Zonal Strength Tights in action.
She wrote: ‘When Nike reached out to me about collaborating on this project, I saw it as an opportunity to inspire people who want to use their bodies in a positive way. We cast a group of amazing people who take their physicality seriously and have their own sense of style, to push people to be healthy and understand, through any genre of sport, they can be the best versions of themselves.’
She also said ‘People don’t always see dancers as athletes, but we are.’ When you some some of the incredible moves in the video you’ll understand what she means. The clothes look good too.
This makes Ivy Park look pedestrian.
The photographs were taken by the talented David Uzochukwu – he’s been on our radar for a while.
