Nike x Undercover Gyakusou spring-summer 2013 collection
Since 2011 Nike collaborates with the Japanese designer Jun Takahashi, founder of the cult brand Undercover, to release a high quality clothing range dedicated to runners. Once again, the two of them renew this partnership for spring-summer 2013 season with a range of technical and reliable products based on Nike know-how and Jun’s particular taste for functional aesthetics. “Because running during the summer is a fight against the heat”, pieces of this collection are made of ultralight and breathable materials from head to toe, reducing discomfort during extreme running conditions. For the season, the creator chose colors according to a certain vision of the urban runner (as he has always did since the very beginning of his collaboration with Nike), then touches of brighter color were added this time: orange, lush greens, fuschias cheering up those pieces one could find colorless. In more concrete words, the collection is made of windunners, t-shirts, shorts and pushers, then two models of running shoes: the Lunarspider LT+3 (with a crazy orange colorway) and the Lunarglide 4.
