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