Continuing their highly successful Gyakusou collection, Nike and Undercover are back with another range of sportswear designs for the Holiday 2014 season.
Similar to previous releases, this collection takes a very serious approach to activewear, as the garments blend Nike Running and Research Lab innovations with Undercover designer Jun Takahashi's own performance insights. This season, however, there is much more emphasis placed on technical components as every detail provides a running-specific function. So not only do the clothes look performance-ready, they’re actually beneficial to the wearer’s movement.
Intended for layering, the new collection features sleek, understated designs that utilize technical fabrics that ensure breathability, flexibility, and weather resistance. And although there were no sneaker designs for this particular season, Gyakusou still offers up a solid selection of activewear essentials ranging from compression tights to thermo vests to woven hoodies and shorts.
But the standout item has to be the Engineered Sleeve Composite Jacket. Created with Storm-FIT technology, this item features laser-perforated underarm ventilation, laser-cut concealed-zip hand pockets, as well as a stand collar and sealed seams for extra protection.
Take a look at the range below. The Gyakusou Holiday 2014 Collection is set to launch Oct. 23 at NikeLab locations and online.
