Following a glimpse at the upcoming range with a behind-the-scenes video and the collection’s lookbook, Nike has officially unveiled its Fall/Winter 2012 collaboration with Japanese designer Jun Takahashi and UNDERCOVER for its latest collection of GYAKUSOU apparel. Tailor-made for the Team Gira runners and inspired by the likes of Japan’s forests and Nagano’s storied Togakushi Shrine, the latest running designs take cues from the natural environment and feature appearances from an autumnal cedar tree camouflage alongside hues of blue, green, maroon, grey, and brown on long- and short-sleeve tops, running tights, shorts, knight caps, wool hoodies, convertible jackets and more. Offering a decidedly technical edge, the collection makes use of Nike’s Durable Water Repellent (DWR) technology and features unique details like underarm slits, laser-cut ventilation, bonded seams and expert tailoring. Dubbed “Autumn Monks,” the UNDERCOVER x Nike GYAKUSOU Fall/Winter 2012 apparel collection will make its debut next month at select retailers.
