For nearly 10 years, UNDERCOVER founder Jun Takahashi has teamed up with Nike to produce his GYAKUSOU line — a line spearheaded by functional athletic wear that articulately blends high-performance wear with urban landscapes. Now the designer and sportswear brand have come together to showcase a uniquely colored range for its Spring/Summer 2019 collection.
Within the new collection, Takahashi has created a new Transform JKT; a transformable piece that can be stuffed into one of the jacket’s pockets. The jacket utilizes a lightweight nylon-blended outer which allows for rain and wind protection, paired with a sweat-wicking Dri-Fit inner. The Lightweight JKT employs a variety of holes that maximize the breathability of the garment. Also included in the apparel range are the men’s compression tights and women’s short, which see reduced seams for maximal comfort.
Also included in the range are three upcoming footwear kits – the knitted-upper Zoom Vaporfly 4% as well as two distinct iterations of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo. The aforementioned knit shoe arrives in a distinct Burgundy and White colorway, offering branding hits on the ankle ribbing with various hits of yellow scattered throughout. The Zoom Pegasus Turbo colorways arrive in a unique blend of Yellow, Green, and Burgundy, employing branding along the separating strip that runs down the sneaker’s toebox. Various 3M details are scattered throughout the shoes’ exterior.
Take a look at the upcoming footwear range above and the apparel collection below, and be prepared, as the collection is slated to drop globally via Nike’s web store on February 28.
