NIKELAB GYAKUSOU UNVEILS SILHOUETTES FOR SPRING

The New NIKE Training Kit

For over half a decade, Jun Takahashi, founder of the apparel brand Undercover, has comfortably worn three hats — that of a runner, designer and Nike collaborator, consulting on the NikeLab x Undercover Gyakusou collection. It is a rare fusion, explains NikeLab Senior Design Director Jarrett Reynolds. 

“Jun is a real runner,“ Reynolds elaborates. “I’ll sit down and ask him how he‘s been running, what has changed, what‘s working and what‘s not. I’m able to get insight that could only come from him because he has an insane eye for design and is a passionate runner.“

This confluence means that after 12 collections, NikeLab and Takahashi are still tackling new challenges by blending Nike innovation with Takahashi‘s ever-evolving running insights and signature aesthetic.

For Spring 2016, they dig into weather and temperature, be it that of the environment or the runner, with data-informed placement of water-resistant materials and pockets that allow for quick and efficient storage of outer layers. The latest offering also features silhouettes designed for both men and women.
