Today, Nike Sportswear revealed their latest collaborative effort with LeBron James.

Aptly named the Diamond collection, it hints at LeBron’s career forged by heat, time and pressure. However, despite the name, the collection is less about sports and more about what you do off the court. 

The diamond collection will include the LeBron Peacoat Destroyer, Virtus Hoodie, LeBron 6 Crew and Varsity Shawl Collar Cardigan, all of which use high quality cottons, wool, hi-density twill and leather.

Led by the LeBron Peacoat Destroyer, the collection incorporates beautiful materials and tailoring. The peacoat features a wool body and leather sleeves, while signature peacoat buttons, zonal Nike Sphere lining and a longer length distinguish this jacket.

The LeBron Varsity Shawl Collar Cardigan is a cotton sweater knit cardigan that embodies a heritage-rich look with classic varsity stripes and shawl collar construction. A kangaroo pocket and the collection’s signature embroidery help elevate the cardigan.

The LeBron Virtus Hoodie stays true to the iconic AW77 hoodie style, with details like a hi-density jacquard label, embroidered lion on the left chest, and a center-back direct embroidery that adds a combination of satin stitched and twill appliqué.

The LeBron 6 Crew brings elegant touches to a laid-back, off-court crew, including a left-chest cut and sew detail that off-sets a classic yarn die stripe.

“Earned, not given,” a motto of the three-time MVP, carries to the LeBron Earned Not Given Tee.

The “Diamond” collection hit Nike Sportswear stores yesterday in the US, and will eventually be made available at NSW retail locations globally.
