We all have idols, figures that inspire or have inspired our work or our lives and it is precisely to these characters that we must recognize the importance and centrality they deserve.
Gratitude is a value.
Jerry Lorenzo, founder of Fear of God, did just that.
On the occasion of the launch of his new collaboration with Nike and the new colorway of the Nike Air Fear of God 1 “String” he wanted to celebrate the figure who influenced him more than any other, Allen Iverson.
Iverson was one of the greatest basketball players in NBA history.
183 centimeters of pure talent, MVP of the Regular Season in 2001 and out of the ordinary player.
Thanks to the work of photographer Gary Land, author of the photographic book “The Iverson Book”, the editorial that Lorenzo and Land put together is a true “magnificat” of the historic number 3 of the Philadelphia 76ers.
Land reinterprets some of the iconic photographs taken at AI with Lorenzo as the protagonist focusing on the importance that Iverson has had in the life of the American designer.
Nike Air Fear of God 1 “String” will be released on February 14th exclusively in Chicago where the All Star Game 2020 will take place.
