Nike is set to team up with Sk8thing and Toby Feltwell’s Cav Empt imprint. Taking cues from street fashion and core sportswear classics, the C.E and Nike capsule looks to blend references from both Japan and London.

Coming in the form of a track suit, jersey, cap, vest, and a special iteration of the Air Max 95, the capsule sees the majority use of navy blue mixed with tan. From the images we can see that Cav Empt’s signature name embroidery on the shoulders is present on the vest; C.E‘s coded graphics and patterns also make their way on the uppers of the 95s. Other details include a cinching behind the knee of the tracksuit pants, changing the silhouette from a straight leg to a more updated fit.

As Toby Feltwell comments “In the early 2000s, a Nike Tracksuit paired with Nike Air max was the uniform of the London Streets. We started C.E. a decade later, and though we were in Tokyo, images from that time and place have been consistently with us. We looked at this opportunity to work with Nike as a way to interact with these images more directly. We are engaging in a sort of time travel. The project with Nike has allowed us to work in the present to redesign our past.”

The Nike x Cav Empt collection is slated to drop on Cav Empt’s online store and Tokyo retail store on January 5, with a wider release taking place January 10.
