UNDERCOVER x Nike Gyakusou Holiday 2014 Collection

October 6, 2014








Nike once again teams up with Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER for another coveted collection tapping into the designer’s devout approach to urban running. When designing the collection, the two brands contemplated on what a running uniform might look like in 1,000 years. This thought process eventually led to the development of the Utility Long Tights – a combination of running shorts and running tights. A looser fit on top incorporates pockets and recalls classic sport shorts, while the integrated full-leg coverage of tights provides necessary warmth. This same forward-looking concept also led to the Engineered Sleeve Composite Jacket. Instead of using a single fabric to form the outerwear layer, the unlined jacket incorporates multiple materials. The body of the garment is constructed of a composite Storm-FIT that provides weather protection, whereas the sleeves and neck are formed from an engineered knit that allows for mobility and adapts to the arm in motion.

The collection launches October 23 online and at NikeLab locations worldwide.
