Designer Kerby Jean-Raymond will create a new fashion line for Reebok.
Acclaimed Haitian-American designer Kerby Jean-Raymond will create a new fashion line for reebok, his label announced Tuesday, as the struggling sportswear manufacturer seeks to revive its brand.
Jean-Raymond, whose work has highlighted police brutality against African-Americans, will serve as artistic director of a new division called reebok Studies, Pyer Moss said in a statement.
Jean-Raymond rose to fame at New York Fashion Week in late 2015 when Pyer Moss's spring 2016 collection took inspiration from the Black Lives Matter movement, which campaigns against racism towards black people.
He is considered one of the best fashion designers of his generation and his designs regularly feature references to African-American culture and the community's role in the history of the United States.

Reebok's turnover fell 3.0 percent on-year in 2018, data showed in March, continuing a struggle for growth that has persisted since Adidas took it over in 2005.
It has been collaborating with Jean-Raymond since 2017.
