Today sees the launch of a collaborative womenswear collection from Nike and designer Chitose Abe of Japanese label Sacai. If you love rocking your gym wear as regular day to day wear then this collaboration was made for you. The Nike x Sacai collaboration is about the redefinition of sports classics; designed for the body in motion the collection presents pieces that are all about traditional sportswear with a fluid trendy touch to them, playing on femininity and modernity.
The eight-piece collection draws inspiration from traditional sport pieces and silhouettes from the Nike archives that Sacai reworked to create functional yet feminine sportswear which incorporates bright colours and playful design details. Sacai designer Chitose Abe put her signature aesthetic on the collection remixing sportswear originals and creating pieces like a gray Tech Fleece hoodie with a reverse navy peplum shooting from the back, and using the same fabric in the form of a royal blue crew top with an accordion-pleat fanning out. Nike classics liek the Windrunner also remain: revamped with a plissé pleat in the back, or with a paneled skirt with accordion pleats in bands of green and blue. Of course the favourites are in including sweatpant,s which show up sleek and polished but still all-over athletic, sweatshirts emblazoned with Nike sliced down the back and more.
