On February 29th Nike in collaboration with Precinct 5 and Cafe Cox hosted the exhibition game between Holland and England. For this occasion the cafe was decorated in full A.V.E.-style with a giant screen set up to broadcast the live match. Unity was displayed by the invited guests donning the brand new away kit and custom made Nike A.V.E. Destroyer jacket. Check out the full photo report taken by Dennis Branko below.
This past Monday, Nike launched the rather mysterious A.V.E. or Allen Voor Een-campaign at Precinct 5, which had been dressed up for the occasion: Black top to bottom walls, lifesize manifesto tablets and lion head-logo's made things feel even more secretive. After some drinks and chats, MC Lentini and Dutch actor Nasrdin Dchar addressed the invitees and demystified a couple of things. Come to find out, this campaign has been created to unite street culture, music, media, fashion and sports, all in support of the Dutch National football team who are set to play at UEFA Euro 2012. All people in attendance were given the opportunity to mark down a date for a photoshoot sporting the all new 2012 Dutch team jersey. In addition, a very limited Nike A.V.E. Destroyer jacket has been produced for a few lucky ones. Check out the photo recap shot by Dennis Branko below and stay tuned for more information!
