For the past ten years, under the Gyakusou banner, Undercover designer Jun Takahashi has created conceptual performance collections for Nike. The Gyakusou imprint’s mission statement is cutting edge technological function that naturally blends into and becomes a part of its urban surroundings, a natural melding of dynamic motion and static environment.
For Spring 2019, the latest advancements in performance running are paired up with a stylishly earthy palette. The interaction and the blurred distinctions between user and environment are expressed with multifaceted, transformable garments designed for easy packability, and location specific performance attributes based on body-mapped engineering.
The Nike Gyakusou Transform Jacket takes designer Jun Takahashi’s run-informed approach to fashion and creates a garment that brings together different technologies so you can adapt to a sudden change in the weather. The 2-in-1 design delivers a wind- and water-resistant outer shell that can be removed to reveal a long-sleeve top.
