NIKE LAUNCHES HIJAB SWIMWEAR
The global message for inclusion keeps being adhered to as Nike launches a modest swim collection for the Muslim woman. After listening to the feedback of athletes like Emirati figure skater Zahra Lari, the design team came up with a head-to-toe swim set that “brings performance innovation to modest swimwear”.
In 2017, Nike introduced the Pro Hijab but has decided to release a full collection next year.
The “Victory Collection” which will officially launch online on February 1 features Swim Hijabs designed with a fitted headband and breathable mesh to ensure comfort and security for high-energy sports. Nike built in a bra in the Nike Victory Swim Tunic Top for extra support and the straight-leg silhouette of the Nike Victory Swim Leggings comes in a lightweight fabric that’s also cling-free so it won’t affect speed.
