Nike and Jun Takahashi, the founder of Japanese brand Undercover, have teamed up again to release an exceptionally beautiful collection of technical running apparel and footwear. The Nike x Undercover Gyakusou collection pushes the envelope of modern, design-driven performance apparel in a way that can only be described as artistic and thoughtful. The autumnal palette, slightly heathered knits and honeycomb reinforced compression panels make our Active hearts sing.
Shot on location around the old temples in the Tofuku-ji and Kozan-ji area by photographer Katsuhide Morimoto, the images evoke a sense of well-being, as the concept of city-to-trail running is explored and reinterpreted with a zen-like quality.
The Gyakuso Collection will be available at Très Bien as of this week, and the last time we checked, it was almost sold out….sigh. – Jeanine Pesce
