News: Nike X Undercover Gyakusou Collection

Despite many people’s protestations that they would start to run at the beginning of the year, the unseasonably wet few months that we’ve suffered have probably put a fair few people off. Now that the weather is improving (finally!) there really is no excuse (unless you CBA, which is an excuse in my eyes). You’ll need some fancy new running gear, obvs, and that’s why should check out this awesome collab between Nike and Undercover and the latest Gyakusou collection.

Japanese designer, Jun Takahashi‘s Spring 2014 collection visually represents the joy and pain felt from running, utilising contrasting colours and materials. The collection takes inspiration from the latest technology including thermal body mapping. Using this as a base, Takahashi incorporates Nike Sweat Map ventilation, an engineered jacquard weave with pinpoint laser perforations.Similarly, the footwear is lightweight with breathable mesh and a tonal python embossed leather.
