Nike are gearing up for Tokyo 2020 by partnering with five international icons of style: Yoon Ahn of AMBUSH, Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER, Chitose Abe of sacai, Matthew Williams of ALYX, and Virgil Abloh of Off-White.
The designers are set to celebrate the ways sport manifests, with each piece promising to express the inherent style of athletes and athletic apparel – with themes approached from different points on the sporting spectrum.
According to Nike, the initiative signifies the unifying value of sport as a spark of imagination, possibility and vibrancy.
‘Whether touching on the edges of sport culture, the rebellious spirit of barrier-breaking, the formation of new archetypes, the cutting edge of sports science research or the exuberance of fandom, all lanes combine in honour of intentional movement.’
You can expect the full collections to release this northern summer. Stay tuned for updates.
