When it comes to contemporary Japanese streetwear, few items are more recognizable from a distance than NEEDLES‘ signature track suit. Thanks primarily to celebrity co-signs, the garment has gone from a quirky spin on retro sportswear to an essential transitional weather layering piece. Thanks to retailer nano universe, however, the set will soon be summer-ready, as it has requisitioned NEEDLES for new, extra-breathable iteration of its most famous item.

NEEDLES’ seasonal retailer exclusives range in style from store to store but this nano universe drop is a first for the label, in that the track suit has metamorphized into a brand new silhouette available only at the one company’s Japanese stores.

Comprising a soft polyester work shirt and basketball shorts, this capsule is no less sporty than the usual NEEDLES tracksuit, but its shapes are wholly unique. Each is realized in versatile dark navy and trimmed with unmistakable gold stripes and that ever-present butterfly logo. Thanks to the special poly weave, the shirt and shorts are glossy and soft, finished with relaxed cuts and a drawstring waist for easy hot weather wear.

The exclusive NEEDLES shirt and shorts are available for ¥19,800 JPY and ¥17,600 JPY, respectively (approximately $190 USD and $166 USD) via nano universe’s web store

This isn’t even the only special NEEDLES joint effort to launch in recent weeks, as the apparel label only just introduced its collaborative capsule with Wrangler Japan.
