For Spring 2009, Nike Sportswear is collaborating with Paule Marrot, a French textile company that has been creating textiles since the 1920’s. Both the shoe and the design are more flirty and feminine, as they've been designed for women by a French company known for their feminine patterns.
The Nike designs include a gold and white pair covered in small butterflies, a blue pair with cherries and a red pair with leaves that look like they're floating. What a perfect homage to spring, and a perfect collaboration.
The Queen has already given her approval of the Paule Marrot brand, and with this modern take on feminine design, a whole new era of women will similarly know the name.
