A RICH AND ELEGANT DISRUPTION OF ICONIC SPORT STYLES DESIGNED TO COME ALIVE AS YOU MOVE.
The fruits of NikeLab’s collaborative spirit are blooming just as winter thaws into spring with a explorative fashion x performance collection from renowned Japanese designer Chitose Abe of sacai. Inspired by the Nike archive of running, tennis, and American football heritage sportswear, the NikeLab x sacai eight-piece capsule collection playfully weaves delicate detailing with sportswear fabrics into fashionable silhouettes, accentuating form with fluidity.
Notable details of the collection include the comfortably loose nature of fleece designed with openings and underlays revealing peeks of special mesh lace hem specially developed by Nike and Abe to adorn the front and rear trim of the collection’s tops, the combination a feminine flair to a sporty aesthetic. Similarly, athletic knee highs transition into fishnet detailing in the back, while plissé-style pleating outlines a feminine shape from the amorphous structure of fleece. It’s only while in motion the juxtaposition of athletic function and fashionable detailing come alive to underline the body in motion, an edgy hybrid that looks worthy of both a run and the runway. – Designmilk.com
