Nike x Undercover: Gyakusou S/S 2013 Collection

Nike recently announced the launch of its latest collaboration with cult fashion brand, Undercover – creating Nike’s most premium running performance collection to date. Designed to battle the Summer heat with breathable, lightweight, running-specific designs, the new collection from Nike and Undercover fuses performance tech with stylish craftsmanship.

Just when you thought Summer was over with its cooler chills coming through during the working week (And making me feel a little under the weather!), the sun has again made a nice appearance this weekend with its 30 degree weather in Sydney.

This gorgeous warm weather is the perfect complement to the new Spring/Summer collection from Nike and their collaboration with cult fashion brand, Undercover.

“A signature fusion of function and utility, the Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Spring/Summer 2013 collection infuses Jun Takahashi’s ‘less is better’ design philosophy with the latest Nike innovations to present a technologically advanced and sleek running line. Designed specifically to address the cooling requirements of summer runners in Brazil and worldwide, it employs unlined, breathable, and supremely lightweight materials from head to toe, providing athletes with the ability to pursue their passion despite sweltering conditions.”

Ladies! Some good news for you all: For the first time, the ladies’ line will be available in Australia! Woohoo! Standout pieces in the women’s line include the Convertible Jacket and the signature Woven Skirt.

Something that sparked some interest to me though is the advanced technology that Nike have used in the entire new collection: think moisture wicking DRI-FIT knit, mesh and lightweight material to ensure ultimate breathability. Nike always takes into consideration both comfort and functionality.

Perfect for those ladies training for the Nike She Runs event in May! 😉

The fellas haven’t been forgotten though, because they also get the same kick-ass innovative technology with their new line this Spring/Summer. The standout featured pieces are looking to be the 5 Inch Short and the Composite Hoody.

“Extending to the feet, both collections present complimentary versions of the Nike LunarGlide+4 running shoe, featuring breathable, single layer mesh upper and a two-part midsole for stability, comfort and cushioning. Finished off with the signature Gyakusou logo on the tongue and insole, their unique colour combinations are consistent with the apparel side of the collection.” I’m really loving the colourway on these shoes!
