UNDERCOVER founder Jun Takahashi combines the simplicity of color aesthetics with the functionality of Nike to launch the Nike Gyakusou SP19 collection, which continues to pair Takahashi’s style with Nike’s latest running apparel advances. This includes garments designed for packability, as well as Those formed through body-map engineering to ensure sharpest functionality.
The Transform JKT, as the name suggests, “transforms” the jacket by unzipping the front and stuffing the top part of the jacket into its pocket. The Gyakusou version of the jacket gives the lightweight woven outer shell that protects runners from wind and rain a distinct color and graphic treatment. While the soft Dri-Fit base is designed to wick sweat, a second jacket – the Lightweight JKT – employs skin temperature maps to ensure properly placed laser cut holes to maximize breathability.
The men’s tight and women’s short are built with scientifically-informed knit (based on vibration maps) that reduce seams and deliver targeted compression where most needed. Complementing the apparel are muted colorways of the Nike Vaporfly 4% and the Nike Pegasus Turbo.
The Nike Gyakusou SP19 collection pre-releases in Nike Harajuku on Saturday, 16 February and globally releases on Thursday 28 February.
