Ghanaian-born American fashion designer, Mimi Plange, is the designer behind the Mimi Plange x Nike LeBron 20 CEREMONY which launched on 7th September on her website and on 9th September on the official Nike website. With designs influenced by African heritage, she has worked with Rihanna, Serena Williams and the former first Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. She has also for the past couple of years, worked with Nike Basketball and LeBron James to outfit the LeBron 18 Low in colorways that celebrate culture. For 2023 she has disclosed along with James that they would be moving on to the LeBron 20 to make room for its soon to be successor — the recently-spotted LeBron 21. It draws inspiration from the Maasai people of Tanzania with its mixed media details that tap various weaves, textures and satin embroidery, paying homage to their mastery of pattern. The design also considers LeBron’s journey as the most anticipated draft prospect of all-time to a wise veteran and notes its similarities to the youth-to-elder transformation celebrated by the Maasai people of Africa.
With this rendition of the LeBron 20, “Bright Crimson” lights up the otherwise-white upper, with the silhouette’s typical knit treatment substituted for a more robust finish to its pattern. Additionally, various floral graphics are made to intertwine with the Swooshes, utilizing the aforementioned orange hue to enliven its presentation. Adding additional color, a purple Bold Berry peeks out from beneath the laces while the laces themselves are found in two different multicolored patterns with a co-branding which arrives at both the heel and sockliner while an all-white sole unit rounds out the look.
Despite popping up via Nike’s official imagery, neither Mimi Plange nor the Swoosh have shared any details regarding this forthcoming collaboration on the LeBron 20. With the LeBron 21 poised to launch in the coming months.
