Nike blazer floral collection

It looks like Nike are trying to say it with flowers. And by 'it', we mean urbanised sunshine from the ankles down.

This is the Blazer Floral collection: three bright, summer-filled designs that draw on the identities of three major US cities.

The Los Angeles pair nod to the region's flora and fauna: lush green growth offset by splashes of birds-of-paradise colours. The Chicago-inspired pair feature the city's official flower, chrysanthemums (but you obviously knew that), while the New York City set go for dandelions - "a symbolic reference to wishful thinking and the quick pace of the Big Apple’s city-streets", apparently.

They're a daring collection of prints, but partnered with a calming pair of black jeans and a quiet t-shirt and a set of these Blazer Florals could go down a treat. Released on 31 May, you'll have to go hunting for them at select Nike Sportswear retailers.
