NEW NIKE X UNDERCOVER GYAKUSOU COLLECTION REVEALED

Nike has officially unveiled its Fall/Winter 2012 collaboration with Japanese designer Jun Takahashi for its Nike x Undercover Gyakusou apparel collection. Dubbed “Autumn Monks,” the line will make its debut next month at select retailers.

Takahashi’s designs offer a powerful technical edge with running-specific details and respect the need of mobility. The styles take inspiration from nature and show appearances from an autumnal cedar tree camouflage alongside hues of blue, green, maroon, grey, and brown.
The Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Fall/Winter 2012 line includes a pleated convertible skirt for women, long tights, convertible and lightweight jackets, hoodies, long- and short-sleeve tops and a knit cap.  Within the collection, Nike’s Durable Water Repellent (DWR) technology has been implemented, featuring unique details such as underarm slits, laser-cut ventilation, bonded seams and expert tailoring.

This is the fifth season of collaborations for Nike and Jun Takahashi with the Japanese designer continuing to explore the true meaning of "Gyakusou" (literally translated as "run backwards").
