After working in the fashion industry for over a decade, Mimi Plange launched her namesake brand in 2010, showcasing pieces inspired by both traditional sportswear and the designer’s own Ghanaian roots. And today, just ten years later, Plange will soon be offering its own collaboration with LeBron 18 Low.
Dubbed “Higher Learning,” the colourway is part of a larger celebration of the varsity jacket, an American staple that is rapidly resurging. Plus, it’s a testament to its creator’s passion for style, which runs through all facets of the upper’s design. Even in the scheme, the pair visualize the collegial spirit, combining undertones of yellow and red as a likely nod to iconic Ivy League institutions. Elsewhere, both above the heel and in the middle, a number of patches take center stage, their tackle twill either plain in bold type or more aggressive with tiger designs.
Discover the partnership below. A release is currently slated for Nike KR on May 23. It is possible that some retailers and Nike SNKRS US will follow shortly thereafter.
