The Tokyo Olympics are officially going down this Summer, and in the spirit of the global competition, Nike is linking up with four international labels in sacai, Off-White™, UNDERCOVER and AMBUSH on sport-focused apparel collections. Chitose Abe, Virgil Abloh, Jun Takahashi and Yoon Ahn all bring forth their inimitable perspectives to the table and engineer sporty-yet-sleek garments, all of which are designed to unify people through sports.

Leading the way is Virgil Abloh and his popular Nike x Off-White™ apparel collection. Dropping alongside his trio of Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% collaborations is a full range of apparel pieces including that of short-sleeved tees, crop tops for the ladies, utility pants, shorts with built-in compression shorts, tight shorts and socks.

Chitose Abe of sacai has worked with the Swoosh on athleisure items including bomber jackets, cropped tanks and windbreaker jackets that can be used for both performance and lifestyle purposes.

Yoon Ahn from AMBUSH panders to futuristic and Tokyo-friendly colors for her pieces. Moto-style pants and jackets are what have been previewed so far, all of which are dressed with neon pink/black and neon green/black color-blocking. “I wanted to try something new and take a risk”, Ahn says when speaking on her collection. “The fun thing about fashion is that all these different elements can co-exist with functionality.”

Lastly, UNDERCOVER takes a dip into the realm of hoops by merging vintage basketball silhouettes with Japan’s streetball culture. Jun Takahashi creates a new “league” of his own titled the UBA and slaps this onto various jerseys and shorts along with the brand’s signature “CHAOS” and “BALANCE” wording.

Be on the lookout for the Off-White™ products to drop on July 23, the UNDERCOVER items to launch on July 28, the AMBUSH offerings to release on July 30 and the sacai pieces to arrive on August 4.

Elsewhere in fashion, Nike recently unveiled its snakeskin-covered kits for Inter Milan for the 2021-2022 season.
