Previous collections have been characterised by pretty florals from all colours of the spectrum, but this drop is proudly blue, punctuated only by trimmings and laces in beige.
The Roshe Run (£75) and Dunk Sky Hi (£120) styles
For the first time, Nike’s Internationalist trainer is getting a Liberty of London makeover and the style embraces all three prints from the collection: Anoosha, a ’30s print featuring blossom and bell flowers; Lora, a print based on a ’70s version of William Morris’s ‘Willow’ pattern; and Crown, a design based on various paisley block prints from Liberty’s Merton print works during the late 19th to early 20th Century. The style will retail at £75.

The Internationalist, £75
Otherwise, it’s a tough call between the Air Max 1, Roshe Run, Air Max 90 and Nike Blazer. Those who like their trainers with a wedge heel however, will be regaled by the Dunk Sky Hi (£120).
What’s more, enthusiasts of the re-hashed prints can pepper their wardrobes with a pair of running shorts, hooded jacket and a sleeveless jacket.

Clothing starts from £50 for a pair of shorts, ranging to £80 for a jacket
