“sacai’s vision is to take classic styles that are familiar to everyone, such as the cardigan, shirt or jacket, and play with the fabrics and silhouettes,” offers the label’s founder and designer Chitose Abe, as her latest collaborative project with NikeLab drops.
“I want everyone to touch, feel and enjoy the collection,” she continues of hook up number three; “(I’m) expressing the style of Nike that everyone knows through sacai’s eye.”
Modelled here by the Russian athlete Darya Klishina and lensed by Craig McDean – Brit born, New York based Karl Templer styles – the new NikeLab x sacai collection riffs on themes familiar to the two preceding partnerships, as per the aforementioned sacai aesthetic.
Gone however, are the bright colours of earlier interpretations, replaced now with a more conservative grey, navy and white palette. Elsewhere the Nike Tech fleece features, plus a Destroyer Pleated Back Jacket and matching skirt.
