The tennis champion Naomi Osaka switched from Adidas to Nike last year and her collaboration with this brand is a gift that keeps on giving. Her new NikeCourt collection is here and she’s using each and every garment to pay homage to her multicultural background.

According to Nike’s official statement, this line was inspired by “Naomi’s unique outlook and playful style” and its design features a “one-of-a-kind pattern made by plugging in the coordinates for Japan, Haiti, and the USA.”

By doing so, this collection is paying homage to Osaka’s roots and the new logo is there to embody the spirits of her three continental backgrounds. The letters N.O. obviously represent the tennis player’s initials, but they also draw inspiration from the Japanese flag.

The items from Osaka’s Nike collection became available for purchase on the brand’s official website on November 16. The line features a range of casual pieces, including polos, T-shirts, sweatshirts, sports tops, and tennis shorts, but it also comes with several accessories you can wear outside the gym, including fanny packs and beanies.
