Editor’s Notes: Ten years strong, and Nike and Jun Takahashi continue their partnership on into Spring 2019, presenting the latest Gyakusou collection. Per usual, we find Takahashi blending high-performance wear with the urban landscape.
Takahashi reveals, “I intentionally include earthy colors. It is important to bring together my aesthetics with Nike’s functionality.”
For Spring 2019, Nike and Takahashi showcase the brand’s latest running apparel advances, including packable garments and pieces formed through body-map engineering. The Transform Jacket, for example, unzips in the front, as the top part of the outerwear can be stuffed into a pocket. The jacket features a lightweight woven outer that protects runners from wind and rain, while the soft Dri-Fit base wicks sweat. In addition, the Lightweight Jacket utilizes skin temperature maps, allowing precisely placed laser cut holes to maximize breathability.
Furthermore, the new Nike Gyakusou men’s tights and women’s shorts are constructed from scientifically-informed knit that not only reduces seams but also delivers targeted compression to more vulnerable areas.
Alongside the apparel, Nike and Jun Takahashi present the Vaporfly 4% and the Pegasus Turbo in muted colorways.
The Nike Gyakusou Spring 2019 collection is scheduled to launch worldwide on February 28.
