When Undercover’s Jun Takahashi and NikeLab joined forces in 2010, the iconic brand broke with sportswear convention to directly enter the streetwear scene. Integrating Takahashi’s rebellious, high-minded and singular creative sensibilities into the fabric of Nike’s DNA, the collaboration’s comprehensive menswear line-up spans tops, trousers, shorts, footwear, and outerwear, achieving new aesthetic heights alongside performance upgrades and utilitarian design features. Easily packable jackets and vests showcase a dual commitment to athletic functionality alongside a distinctively urban, futurist aesthetic. The NikeLab AAE (Advanced Apparel Exploration) collection, meanwhile, reproduces body information and digital mapping to create fluid forms backed by big data. Dri-FIT and AeroReact fabric technologies, body-mapped graphics, and smart pockets are deployed in unison to eliminate bulk and distracting details, streamlining the modern runner’s kit down to essentials. Inspired sneaker designs grant elevated performance alongside exceptional form, presented in a range of distinctive silhouettes and monochromatic designs.
