Following the Air Force 1 “City” collection, Nike has teamed up with Brazilian designer Pedro Lourenço to present a new women’s training collection inspired by the emerging desire for luxury in sport performance gear. Designed to transition from workouts to everyday wear, the range represents a play on proportions and layering and includes three looks and two footwear options designed to be worn together. Throughout the collection Lourenço employed materials that perform, yet also are soft and feminine.
For example, the collection features a neoprene jacket that is crafted with ‘60s-era couture tailoring techniques while incorporating present-day technologies. Lourenço also uses Nike technologies as a functional aesthetic detailing. Gradient flocking in black and nude colors identifies areas of enhanced breathability. The addition of a skirt panel to the training tight flatters the form, while reflective details throughout the collection help keep athletes visible at night.
The Nike x Pedro Lourenço collection will be available at NikeLab and NikeLab DSM locations, as well as online, beginning November 13.
